Steve wants to know if there's a device that will give him internet without paying a monthly fee. Leo says that Freedom Pop promises internet, but understand it'll be filled with ads. There's also NetZero. Another idea is to spend time at your public library or local wifi hotspot. Some cities also offer free public wifi all around their municipality.
Dave says that Riverside is ending their free Wi-Fi service tomorrow after complaints that some people couldn't use it. AT&T, who set it up, pulled out a few years ago and Riverside may have decided it was too costly to operate on their own. Leo says that's a shame because Riverside was one of the first communities to give it a try. It's not likely that more communities will be able to join in, as most ISPs have lobbied legislatures to outlaw free Wi-Fi service so ISPs can charge more.
