Moved? No Internet? Great Wi-Fi Options
If you are like many others with moving and storage on your agenda, you have either forgot to schedule internet connection at your new place until the last minute or you called, but they could not squeeze you in for three weeks. Most people these days agree that they would rather be without their phone than the internet. Fortunately, there are a lot of establishments that now offer Wi-Fi so you don’t need to stress about being disconnected.
- Library – Nearly every city is going to have a library with Wi-Fi, most today even have nice lounges to relax in. If you are moving to a very small town, there is still a good chance that the library has internet, you just might be forced to use one of their outdated computers.
- Panera – Who doesn’t love Panera, right? It doesn’t matter if it is breakfast, lunch, dinner or any time in between, it is impossible to resist their menu. Well, Panera has Wi-Fi and believe it or not, you will likely see a lot of the same faces there every day taking advantage of it.
- Malls – Many upscale malls offer Wi-Fi in their food court. If the food court at your mall doesn’t, check to see if there is an Apple store there. They always do so customers can test new apps. Pull up a bench outside the store and enjoy.
- Parks – If you happen to move to a trendy location, like California or New York, you will find that many parks offer Wi-Fi. In fact, over the next few years, there will be Wi-Fi added to 20 parks in the five boroughs.
- Beaches – Again, depending on where you are moving, you may be able to enjoy the fresh air at the beach and take advantage of their Wi-Fi. If you are in California, check out Hermosa, Laguna, Long, Newport, Oceanside and Malibu beaches.
- Caribou Coffee – Quickly becoming a favorite spot over the ultra-expensive Starbuck option, Caribou Coffee offers Wi-Fi. However, in some stores, their access code changes every hour or so to ensure you don’t sit there all day, or you that you buy something new.
- Office Depot – You may be surprised at how many people find a nice quiet isle out of the way to use their computer. Employees in most stores typically don’t care as long as you are not there all day and don’t bother the customers.
- Schlotzky’s Deli – These delis have a great wireless program and a pretty good menu. Be warned though, they are typically crowded at lunch and you may get a few looks from people wanting your table, but you can make yourself comfortable after the rush.
- Fazolis – Although Fazolis does not advertise that they have Wi-Fi, most do. This is another place you want to avoid during the lunch or dinner rush, if possible.
Just thinking about moving and storage is enough to stress anyone out. If you are feeling your anxiety levels increase us thinking about being without internet, rest assured that finding a free Wi-Fi spot is easier than you think.
