What is WiFi Hopping
What is Wifi hopping you wonder? Wifi hopping is where you go to different place that have Wifi to get on the internet. Wifi hopping is a great way to get out and about, instead of being couped up in the house all day, just pick an area that has a lot of Wifi hot spot that are free and not free and go there. Here are 10 Wifi places where you can go to find Wifi:
Cafes are great place to go and relax, get a cut of coffee, maybe read a book, and get on the internet, especially Wifi internet, just bring your laptop. Cafe can relaxing place to work from your laptop if you have one of those kind of work from home kind of jobs, who say you have to work from home. The only problem that I have with some cafes, is some of them want to charge you to use there internet like Starbucks, and Books a Million, but Books a Million is not as bad as Starbucks, but don’t let that discourage you from using their internet. So checkout some cafes in you Wifi hopping.
Some library’s do have Wifi internet, and most just have internet. The library’s that have Wifi some of them also have laptops to checkout for a hour or two if no one is wanting one. A thing about library’s is that internet is free, so the Wifi internet is free too, but the down side is it’s for a limited time, like 45 minutes to an hour, but if you have your own laptop you can use it as much as you want.
Not all restaurants, but some of do actually, which kind of surprised me at first, and no I’m not talking about MacDonald’s, which seem to have everything, but I’m talking about restaurants that I didn’t think had Wifi internet, it seem like the more casual restaurants it so , and most of the time it’s free. Some that I can think of that have Wifi access are of course MacDonald’s, and Panera Bread(in Kansas City) , and MaCalister( in Kansas City) are just some.
Some Down Towns Areas
Some down towns area do have great deal of Wifi hot spots, and some don’t. If your in a big city like New York, Chicago,and Los Angeles, just about any other big city are the best places to find Wifi internet. The reason why these city down town areas are great places to find Wifi is because they have these great cafes and restaurants that have Wifi, that hide beneath these big tall office buildings, that also have Wifi in some of their office building lobby’s.
Hotels lobby’s are great places to relax, look around in, checkout, and get on the Wifi internet, and you don’t necessarily have to stay there to get on it, even though they prefer it. One hotel lobby let me get on there Wifi one day, but when came back one another day it wouldn’t let me on, so just kind of go to the hotel lobby’s every now an than in your Wifi hopping experience. The hotel in the down town and near the down town don’t seem to mind people setting around getting online, they seem kind of uses to it, but the ones farther from the down town area, I’m not so sure of, so be low key or ask if it’s ok.
Some Shopping Centers
Some shopping centers, malls, and department store do have Wifi, but not all of them do, and not everywhere in these places, so you want to look for Wifi hot spot. The first indicator of an hot spot is cafes and restaurants. You don’t necessarily have to go in to the cafe or restaurant to get on when in a mall. Most mail have setting area near them so you don’t necessarily have to go in, just set down, relax and get on.
Some college and university do have Wifi at their campuses. The reason why I say some is because depending on the college or school, and how up to date they are, they may not. That places that you want to go to find out are the cafeteria and some college and university have cafe in them and could that be a good indicator that there’s Wifi. Most colleges and university are open to the public, but you still might want to keep a low profile while on campus, that mines no roaming all over the campus, unless you are thing about going there or trying to find the cafeteria.
Some bookstores do have Wifi, but down side to bookstores is some want you to pay for there Wifi by paying for a membership, yeah it’s a small fee, you may not go to that bookstores all the time. Also the reason why I say some bookstores is because there are still bookstores that do not have cafe in them, so if you see a bookstore with a cafe in it thats a good indicator that there is Wifi there, but still ask just to make sure.
Some markets do have Wifi in them, and it’s usually the markets down, and their kind of up scale. I mine they look more like a restaurant or cafe than market, and if their big markets, they look like malls of food, um… Anyway if you see people with their laptop out there’s probably Wifi at the market, and will adment it did amaze me at first, but I like it, it’s cool.
Airports today do have Wifi, at less most of them anyway. There is also a lot of restaurants and cafes at airport, which I said earlier are great indicator for Wifi. Even though airports are not your topical places to go, and they are open to the public, and airports are a change from the everyday, but wouldn’t go to them as often because there is a lot off security, so be kind of low key when your there.
When Wifi Hopping
When going Wifi hopping you to pack a laptop, a mini laptop is pretty good for this kind of experience. Even though mini laptop don’t have everything on them, you don’t really need everything for this kind of experience, and you want to pack light for this journey. If you don’t have one, then the mini laptop is a bit more affordable to invest in then the regular side laptop. Another thing about mini laptop is there hard to notice in your bag, and you don’t really need a preticular type of bag, like the big laptop, just about any big bag will do for the mine. Dress for the weather, for your going to be out and about. look for people with their laptop out, and cafes, like I said earlier those are indicator for Wifi hot spots. You want to do Wifi hopping on you day off, I mine you might want to start the day at a library cafe for breakfast, a than a coffee house for lunch, and cafe/ restaurant or market for dinner. I hope you’ll give Wifi hopping a try, I think you might like it, I know I do anyway, happy Wifi hopping.
