Special Pricing, Good and Bad

You should be aware that there are likely to be all kinds of special pricing deals when you sign up for Wi-Fi access. Mostly, this is all to the good.


The Wi-Fi industry is rapidly changing. Be sure to verify that the information in this chapter is current when doing your own research.

For example, most establishments that provide fee-based Wi-Fi access also have some special, introductory offers. In this spirit, it is typical to find a coupon at Starbucks good for a one-day pass on T-Mobile Hotspot.

However, you should also know that some Wi-Fi networks, such as Wayport, allow individual hotspot operators who are part of their network to charge more than the standard network price for access. If the location charges more than the standard network fee, your credit card will be billed for the overage, so buyer beware. If there's any doubt, be sure that you verify prices for access at a particular location.
