Hotspot (Broadband Wireless Internet Access)

Hotspot is a broadband (high speed) Internet Access connection for remote corporate users using Wireless LAN Technology based on IEEE 802.11b standard (Wi-Fi ). IEEE802.11b or better known as Wireless-B is an international standard from the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) for wireless local area networks, access speed up to 22 Mbps. Some newer PC, notebooks and PDAs now ship with a Wi-Fi interface built-in. Hotspot is a term for a location that offers wireless internet public access. It also share their DSL, cable or T1 broadband connection via an access point that transmits a wireless signal to the wireless card in a user's Wireless Internet enabled device, i.e. laptop, PDA. Coverage extends over a 100-300 foot radius of the access point. Some hotspots require special application software be installed on the Wi-Fi client, primarily for billing and security purposes, but others require no configuration other than knowledge of the network name. * A Wi-Fi-FreeSpot is a hotspot with free wireless internet public access.*

There are two basic kinds of hotspots, public and private. The public is login procedure varies. At free hotspots, such as those in restaurants that want to attract more people, it survey the local area for access points, and then log onto the restaurant's access point using the network's SSID, or network name. At commercial hotspots, before log in for the first time, it has to set up an account, which is billed monthly, similar to a cell phone account. Once it have an account, log in each time to connect it. There are independent commercial hotspots as well as those affiliated with a wireless Internet service provider (WISP). WISPs offer accounts that can be used at all affiliated hotspots. Pricing plans vary. Check the websites for more information.
