Telephone without a landline or internet provider
Public WiFi - with a VPN (virtual private network)
Depending on where in the world you live, there may be a lot of public WiFi hotspots available around you. These are great options to access WiFi without an internet provider. Some people can even access them from inside their homes - particularly if you are next door to a publicly accessible building. These hotspots may belong to businesses such as restaurants or coffee shops. Some are actually provided by the government in some countries. There are also networks of private WiFi hotspots that offer premium prepaid internet access that’s much cheaper than using mobile data.
Using Your Phone or Tablet As A WiFi Hotspot
Most smartphones and tablets with SIM cards have the ability to act as a mobile WiFi hotspot. This feature shares your mobile data plan with any devices connected to the same WiFi hotspot.
Cable Tethering To A Mobile Device
If you only need to connect one device to the internet, why use WiFi at all? Instead of creating a WiFi hotspot, consider using a USB cable to tether your phone or tablet directly to your computer.
Buying a Portable Cellular Router
Remember how we said that using your smartphone’s data plan through a WiFi hotspot could be expensive? Well, some mobile internet providers have seen a gap in the market and will sell you a data-only SIM card that isn’t meant to go in a phone. Instead, you can use these SIM cards with battery-powered portable 4G routers. These offer a dedicated WiFi hotspot and also network your devices together as a bonus. So you’ll have WiFi without an internet provider wherever you go.
