Can I Get WiFi Without an Internet Provider

How to Get WiFi Without Internet Provider

# 1. Mobile WiFi Hotspot

  • This method is suitable for those who have an unlimited or cheap internet plan. If you have a small data cap or pay lots of money for your data, this may not be a good choice for you.
  • Set a data limit on your mobile phone and set your Windows 10/11 computer to metered connection and keep an eye on your leftover data.
  • Make sure to set up a password for your mobile hotspot in case other people suck up your data.
  • Keep the connection between your devices and power supply because a hotspot also consumes a lot of battery resources.
  • Check if your mobile data provider allows you to create a WiFi hotspot or charge a different rate when tethered.

# 2. Public WiFi

  • Logging on to a public WiFi network may have potential risks. For example, everyone else could see your browsing or other information, your fellow internet users may be infected, and more.
  • You can try installing a VPN like NordVPN to encrypt your data.
  • You can install a WiFi finder on your device to detect your nearby WiFi networks.

# 3. Tether Your Smartphone

# 4. Use a WiFi USB Dongle

# 5. Share Someone’s Internet Provider

# 6. Use Free Temporary Internet Services
