What is a Hotspot?
A Hotspot is the access point of a wireless network. A Wifi-enabled device is capable of connecting to a hotspot.
- Let us say you are beyond the reach of your home or office network, somewhere in an airport or a shopping mall.
- You scan for available networks using your Wifi-enabled device.
- You see one or more available networks and you choose one that is free to connect. That is more likely a WiFi Hotspot.
- When your device is connected to a Hotspot, you can start surfing the web.
There are tens of thousands of Free and pay per use WiFi Hotspots around the world.
Many cafés and restaurants provide free access to a WiFi Hotspot.
