10 Ways to Get Free Wi-Fi Wherever You Go

Back in 2011 the , yet whenever you leave the house or office, it’s hit or miss if you will have access to Wi-Fi.
I  and really can’t work without Wi-Fi. Does anyone else relate? I struggle working at places that have slow Wi-Fi. My business can’t operate without fast, reliable Wi-Fi.
I have learned a few ways over the years how to get access to Wi-Fi wherever I go. Here are 10 ways to get Wi-Fi any time, anywhere in the world.

1. Just ask.
One of the easiest ways to snag some free Wi-Fi is just to simply ask someone. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve been at a business and simply asked an employee for the Wi-Fi password and be given it, even where they don’t publicly announce that they have Wi-Fi.
If a business doesn’t have Wi-Fi, or refuses to give you the password, ask a stranger. Yes. That actually works sometimes. Believe it or not, people aren’t always that stingy with their Wi-Fi.
If all else fails, you can do a little planning and ask people online. For example, you can identify the airports that offer free Wi-Fi by visiting  or login into your  account to access free Wi-Fi.
2. Become hot spot savvy.
Becoming more hot spot savvy means knowing the places that provide truly free and reliable Wi-Fi. These include bus and train stations, museums and community spaces like libraries, city plazas and parks. I’ve even noticed public areas around hospitals and court houses also have free Wi-Fi.
As you know, your phone will scan for open or unsecured Wi-Fi networks. Check that when you’re out and about. You may learn that places like your gym or favorite bookstore offer free Wi-Fi.

4. Use your cable company.
This may not be technically free, but if you’re already paying for a cable or Internet subscription from companies like Xfinity, you’re plan may include access to Wi-Fi hotspots. Just login at your cable/Internet provider account and you’ll be connected to Wi-Fi.
Believe it not, cable companies are teaming up so that you can access Wi-Fi from a competitor! Sometimes you’ll notice this new inclination to help you immediately access an opposing competitor’s Wi-Fi right away. For example, I’ve been in Dunkin Donuts that ask for an Xfinity account to get online. If you’re not sure if this is a part of your plan contact customer service or visit .
5. Do a little MAC spoofing.
The main drawback with free Wi-Fi is that you’re only allowed to use it for a certain amount of time. You can change that by spoofing the  of your mobile device. This may be used mainly by those who aren’t afraid of getting a little technical.
This process will vary depending on your operating system, but here’s a guide for  and another for .

If you’re at the airport, venture closer to .
8. Join loyalty programs.
Joining a loyalty program comes with a number of perks, often including free Wi-Fi. Many hotels, including Hilton, Marriott and Kimpton, include free Wi-Fi in their loyalty programs. Because , it’s likely more businesses will reward their frequent customers with free Wi-Fi.
9. Coupons and promotions.
If you’re not a frequent traveler, you can still take advantage of free Wi-Fi offers from hotels by visiting sites like  to find businesses like Gogo and Hyundai that are running a promotion or issuing a coupon for free Wi-Fi.
10. Make your phone a hot spot.
When all else fails, you can turn your phone into a Wi-Fi hotspot through the common technique called tethering. You use your smartphone’s 3G or 4G as a Wi-Fi signal for your laptop or tablet. Here are instructions for  and .
