Extensive list of wireless internet locations...

Jason Boggs

Since I just bought a new laptop, I am already aware of how important wireless internet is. So I thought I would start an extensive list of wireless internet locations. Sure, there are tons of websites on WIFI hotspots, but why waste our time searching when we can contribute to the list and the info will be right here at our fingertips? MODS: If a thread like this already exists, please feel free to delete my thread. Also, it might be a good idea to sticky this thread as it will come in very handy to a lot of people.

Please contribute to this list so we can have better wifi access when we chase!
 
In addition to that list, you can go to google maps and type in "free wifi" and the city, state or just type it in when you're zoomed on a location and bring some up. It's good for larger cities, not sure how well it works for smaller areas.

I also like to drive through neighboorhoods and find unsecured ones :twisted:
 
I think a lot of people haven't replied to this thread because they want to keep thier WIFI "HOTSPOTS" a secret. Maybe I'm wrong and people just don't give a crap if there is a list generated or not. I guess it's ok to keep them a secret so everybody and their dog is not in the parking lot of a wifi spot. I guess keeping it a secret is what makes it a true "HOTSPOT".
 
I didn't think about that one Aaron. It would definitely be a hassle with them changing so much.
 
I am a little short on time, but I wanted to add this... I am working on a file in SA2006 that has the exact wi-fi locations across chaser country. I would like to set the file to a universal format, or several formats at least so others can view with SA9, SA2004-05-06, Streets&Trips, etc.

The goal is to upload it to the net and have other chasers be able to use it/comment on it/and continually keep it up to date (fully agree with Aaron's comment, I have used other people's info before and got burned). Jiwire does work well, but I think its free wi-fi list is not near what is needs to be. For example, my free Kansas list in Street Altas is about 3X the amount in JiWire.
