So now that I have joined the land of the technogically able, and bought a laptop, I thought it might be a good idea to get a hot spot thread going for wifi around town. Here is my list of places so far...

Franklin Sq
McDonalds
Burger King
Hacienda

Anyone else got some?

I was able to connect while parked in front of that coffee shop by Lighthouse Place. I believe it's on 6th St. Could be 7th. I think it's called Lakeshore coffee or some such thing like that.

La Porte County Library, Coolspring Branch (Johnson Rd. and 400 N.), I believe the WorkOne Office in Dunes Plaza has it too.

Downtown has a free outdoor network under NetNitco.

Also, Panini Panini, Lakeshore Coffee, McGinness Pub, Buffalo Wild Wings, Starbucks (for a charge), and the Karwick Al's Supermarket.

I believe Mc Donald's charges for their wifi, but I could be wrong. I sure could not get wifi to work when I was at the restaurant on Michigan Blvd. several weeks ago.

Not any more... It's free.

I just checked the McDonald's web site and it appears as though they charge for wifi, though I could be reading this incorrectly. They state:
"Our local service providers provide high-quality Wi-Fi service through several convenient connection options: on-line credit card payment, subscriptions, prepaid cards, or (sometimes) promotional coupons."

The website is incorrect. WIFI at McDonalds is free. I am using it right now at McDonalds North on Franklin Street.

Good to know. I imagine the one on the Blvd. is also free.

So I have tried out a couple of different hot spots. The downtown one actually works pretty well. I also had pretty good luck on the BWW spot. I had a great signal in the City Council chambers too.

it’s a blessing to have an internet connection. And most of the people realized this during this pandemic. When we’re quarantined, the internet is the only thing that keeps us connected with the world outside. It helps us to take our classes on zoom, to talk to our friends, and to work from home speedput.

I think no one can imagine their lives without the internet. And I would like to add one thing that as far as the internet is concerned, its speed is more important than that. Slow internet sucks and wastes a lot of time doing things online. You can read about the benefits of the internet over here and you can also check your internet speed there.
