Some WiFi points have public access but requires some login (pay) operation before getting the internet access (but you already know this). Unfortunately I don't know any method for sure except successful getting data from internet.
You can try to get small response from quick servers (google for example). And continue network discovery in case of failure. But even after success with small requests I'm not sure in 100% that my request will pass.

I guess one would have to call a familiar URL that returns 'something'. Just seeing if the connection is open, probably won't work as there is a gateway authentication webpage that will load and return a valid value. What you are trying to check is that the route is available...
I wish a 'ping' would work, that would be the least intensive...
