Below I refer to free WiFi.

I ate a Chicken Pot Pie at KFC last evening.
The KFC didn't have WiFi. I was actually surprised.
BUT I picked up a signal from the Comfort Inn next door.
Earlier I took my Lady friend to the doctor. She had a viral thing, but it was confusing because she also had back pain. The doctors office had WiFi.

The Ruby Tuesdays the evening before had WiFi.
Most Pizza Huts have it.
All the MacDonalds have it.
The CookOut have it.
Every Days Inn across the country I have been in has it.
Fairfield Inn like someone mentioned has it.
Heck the 2 grocery stores I frequent have it.

Other places too, but that gives you an idea.

The point I really want to make now is that a year or two ago when you went to one of these places, you would usually have to get a password. Now days it seems they don't bother. The only place that had a formal login was the doctors office, but still no password, and I think he probably uses a service that doesn't allow porn and such. Very religious man.

Did I mention that some gas stations have free WiFi.

Now these people aren't providing each connection 15 to 22 Mbps so they can stream HD movies. They probably have 12 Mbps total and all the connections share.

I have noticed that they will have more than 1 WiFi signal, and the 2nd or 3rd is locked down.
My doctor has one named "patient," one named "office" and one named "printer." You can only get on the "patient" one.

Again use the signal meter on one of those WiFi analyzer apps mentioned above to find the strongest signal in your room or even in a restaurant, or like some kids I have seen in the parking lot of a restaurant.
