If you want a quick and easy way to scan your area to find the closest hotspots, check out a free app called WeFi. WeFi lists over 200 million WiFi hotspots around the world so you’ll never have to go too far to find a connection.
Another thing to consider is your cable company. Depending on your provider, you may already have free WiFi access. Cablevision, Time Warner, Comcast, Cox Communications and Bright House Networks all provide more than 250,000 free hotspots in metropolitan areas for qualified customers.
