Today most of businesses - shops, cafés, restaurants, food chains, etc. - provide Free WiFi to customers, but the connection process is not always so fast. Usually, before surfing the Internet, you have to register with your personal data (mainly for advertising reasons) or ask the business owner for a WiFi password. The Wiman App can be a very useful solution while traveling, since it simplifies WiFi access by auto-connecting your smartphone to the best open WiFi around you, wherever you are, and gives you unlimited WiFi.
Usually hotels offer WiFi among the other services, but very often they ask for an additional fee with an average of about $10 per day, even if in the lobby the WiFi is usually free. Sometimes you can connect after signing up with your personal data, especially when you are tourist and look for WiFi hotspots in your accommodation. Most of hotels do that for profiling customers. Otherwise, they may decide to provide them with a WiFi password or leave the WiFi network open. In the last case, WiFi may be unsecure and slow. Tip: Wiman App is an effective solution for finding and connecting to the best Free WiFi hotspots in the area around the hotel without limits!
