    Wifi is a signal from a wireless router. It uses the wired internet service already present. It's not cellular. You can use wifi at public hotspots, private hotspots if you have the passkey, pay for a cellular service for your own mifi hotspot, or from your wireless router in your own home with your own ISP.

    I seem to find Wi-Fi all over. Think about uploading and downloading at one spot. Then digest material? Or just find more Wi-Fi in favorable spots and hang out...
