Would You Expect Sri Lanka To Be Cheap?

I'm currently wrapping up my time here in Sri Lanka, a place I never planned to visit on this trip, but threw in last minute as I worked my way west towards India. I had about 3 weeks of time to fill from when I split with one set of friends in Vietnam, and before meeting another in India. Originally I was going to head straight to India, but instead I ended up cruising up the Mekong to Cambodia for 5 days, then stopped over in Singapore for a couple, and then noticed flights to Sri Lanka and on to India didn't cost much more than straight to India. On a whim I went for it and booked my flight from Singapore to Sri Lanka.

These days, it's easy to come across decent free internet and WIFI when travelling. You can travel through much of SE Asia on decent free internet from local hostels; in Europe it's pretty much the norm. Australia however, does not follow this standard. I was shocked to find out when arriving in Sydney, that hostels don't offer free WIFI, they don't even offer free internet access of any sort.
