People can get Wi-Fi in any location by using a portable hotspot, tethering data from a smart phone or using a municipal wireless network. Municipal wireless networks offer Wi-Fi over a large geographical area. Often customers pay for a subscription, but some cities offer this service at no cost.
Mobile Wi-Fi hotspots are portable devices that allow users to connect phones, computers or tablets to the Internet through Wi-Fi. Users need to recharge their devices regularly. People can also tether data from a smartphone. This method drains the phone battery more quickly, so users may want to carry a charger as well.
