Find Internet access for free via Wi-Fi for business travelIf you travel out of town, look for airports and hotels that offer free Internet, so you can stay connected without paying extra. Some hotels require an Ethernet cable, so bring one along on overnight trips just in case. For local travel, stay connected with Wi-Fi hotspots in local restaurants and coffee shops, using your smart phone or laptop computer.
Provide Wi-Fi Internet service for free or for pay on your business premisesBring in more customers and encourages existing customers to stay longer by providing Wi-Fi services for those who visit your business. Patrons can surf the Net while eating at your restaurant, or use it to pass the time while waiting in your waiting room. Depending on your business model, you can offer this as a free or pay service.
- Think of providers of free Internet service as a way to save money on Internet when out of the office, rather than a substitute to the paid Internet service you have in your office.
