Enjoy the Fastest Public WiFi Anytime. Forget About WiFi Maps and Ranks
Nowadays when you walk down the street, you get plenty of public WiFi hotspts to choose from. If you’re like us, you don’t want your Spotify music to stop or to get buffering on YouTube or dropped calls on Skype. You need a public WiFi network that’s fast and reliable.
The trouble is that some of these public WiFi hotspots are painfully slow or non-operational, actually getting you offline when you connect to them. So – which of them is the fastest public WiFi network?
In this article we’ll show you how to enjoy the fastest public WiFi connection anytime, anywhere using the Speedify fast bonding VPN app.
Which Provider Has the Fastest Public WiFi?
Whether you’re a client of Xfinity, Time Warner Cable, Optimum or other Internet provider, one of the benefits is that with most of them you can benefit from a local or even national network of free public WiFi hotspots. Unfortunately, some of these have less than decent speeds and sometimes you can’t even access the public WiFi network login page, so you don’t even have access. Unless you do that manually, of course.
You can best see that when walking down the street, streaming something from Apple Music or Twitch and suddenly it begins to buffer or even disconnects. Guess what – your phone just automatically connected to a rotten WiFi hotspot.
If you keep stumbling upon public WiFi hotspots that are anything but fast, there’s a simple way to deal with these public WiFi quality of service issues once and for all and never be disconnected or slowed down by them.
Why Are Some Public WiFi Hotspots Not Working?
First and most often, some public WiFi hotspots are placed in locations that result in spotty signal strength or even dead zones – we like to call them “zombie” hotspots. That’s why you may see you’re connected to the public WiFi network, but not able to access any website.
Second, by default, as you’re moving around, you will be “passed” around from hotspot to hotspot, like in the case of a cellular network. If you’re connected to the public WiFi, your iPhone or Android smartphone will “navigate” from one WiFi hotspot to another (Xfinitywifi, TWCWiFi, CableWiFi, OptimumWiFi, Starbucks, McDonalds, Macy’s etc.). Smartphones are bad at detecting poor WiFi networks, and they default to WiFi instead of LTE when it’s available. Connecting to a bad WiFi hotspot is often the same as having no Internet at all, the complete opposite of the fastest public WiFi.
Unfortunately, the many issues with public WiFi hotspots leads most people either telling their phones to “Forget” certain WiFi networks so it won’t connect, or actually turning off their phone’s WiFi to get off the broken hotspot. But once they do this, their phone won’t join other working WiFi hotspots either, wasting valuable cellular data.
