    Entirely dependent on where you use for wifi access :)

    If you use an open public (meaning an open hotspot with defined public access provision, aka like at a library or an in-store, or community run open hotspot – for examples) wifi hotpost or your own wifi hotspot to connect by – then it should be at no cost (since wifi access isn’t dependent on having a sim card or cellular access – the device is just a tablet computer with wifi connectivity, not a cellular ‘smartphone’) to use the wifi connection.

    If you are intending to use public access chargable wifi hotspots (such as those provided by ‘The Cloud’, to name one commercial provider) – then you will have to pay a subscription for access to the internet via such a hotspot – and that info is to be found at the hotspot provider’s website or via the hotspot provider’s customer services number, or get the information on site where the hotspot is (since there will probably be a notice about the charge, and terms, of use of the hotspot).

    Check that wifi specification is correct before buying – also check which encryption modes are supported (since it don’t state in the specs) – open (no encryption) is universally there, WEP is the basic form supported on most devices, but it being able to handle (and therefore connect to networks with such encryption in use) WPA & WPA2 encryption helps no end to extend the number of hotspots usable by the device.

    But as a note to be aware of, since it’s a B/G (according to specification, yet subtitled as being A/B/G in the advert) rated wifi transceiver onboard, it will connect to B & G mode hotspots, and N mode hotspots set to ‘Auto’ or ’802.11B’ or ’802.11G’ configuration – if an access point (hotspot) is an N or A type, and set to ‘N only’ or ‘A only’ as applies to the equipment, then your ‘B/G’ wifi transceiver will not be able to establish a connection to the wifi access point (hotspot). This applies to all B/G rated wifi enabled equipment :)
