We already know that WiFi is more important than breakfast and parking when it comes to picking your hotel. But how can you make sure you get the best WiFi experience while you’re on the road this fall?
We have three tips:
- Find hotels with free & reliable WiFi. In our previous WiFi Wednesday installment, we showed how easy it is to find hotels with free WiFi. But also recognize that sometimes, free WiFi is not enough. If you need top speeds and reliability, websites like Hotel WiFi Test have performance figures from hotels in popular destinations all around the world.
- Find public WiFi hotspots. One of the easiest ways to do this is by using a smartphone app like WiFi Map. This app shows the nearest hotspots on a map based on your location.
- Stay safe while using public WiFi. While public WiFi is convenient, it comes at a significant risk: hackers have access to the same network that you’re on, which makes it easier for them to access your personal information. Here are 5 tips to stay safe on public WiFi networks.
