Chapter 9. Finding Hotspots > Finding Hotspots

Finding Hotspots

A hotspot is the term used to mean an area in which Wi-Fi users can connect to the Internet.

The term covers for-fee hotspots, which expect you to pay for access, just as you pay for Internet access via an Internet service provider (ISP), such as a cable or telephone company at home. It also covers free commercial hotspots, which are put up by businesses to generate traffic, as I've already discussed. Finally, more free hotspots are provided by institutions such as libraries and local governments. (For example, the city of Philadelphia is planning to provide hotspot access across virtually the entire city.)
