Ok, so as a fulltimer, I dont have a landline, so I rely on a Toshiba Satellite laptop with a Vodafone 3G datacard which we pay £20 a month for so many squigabytes! (Don't ask me!, I just use it! ) My limit is already running down and its only the 14th - been a tad busy! So, everybody is always talikg about free wifi hotspots but I've never used one and wouldn't know how. I know that people have been prosecuted for linking onto unsecure conections but if it's advertised as a free wifi hotspot (like the one I've found at my local Mcdonalds in Congleton) , can I just go down there and fire up my lap top at thier expense and if so how would I do it? I would, of course, feel obliged to go in and at least have a coffee (even if I hate thier carpet burgers!)............besides, it's nippy in the car at this time of year!
