Does Optimum WiFi Have A Time Limit?

Image by Getty Images via Daylife I get this question quite a bit and the answer is “NO”! If you are an Optimum Online customer you get unlimited free WiFi with your internet package. The same does not hold true for people who do not subscribe to Cablevision. Non subscribers trying to get onto the Optimum WiFi network will be considered a guest. Guests will be able to access the Optimum WiFi network three times per 30-day period for a 10-minute session each time. There is a limit of one… Read More

Registering for Starbucks WiFi

Accessing Starbucks WiFi If your on Long Island and still without power, this is for you. Today as I was working at a local Starbucks on Long Island, I was asked how to access the WiFi network in the store. Actually by quite a few people. There were many individuals working from here today as up to 40,000 Long Islanders did not have power after a huge storm.  These individuals had ventured out looking for WiFi Hotspots. Everyone know’s Starbuck’s has a WiFi network but most people don’t realize it’s… Read More

Car Inspection Done – WiFi Hotspot Found

Yesterday I found a hotspot that came in handy and will certainly make my visits to the mechanic a little more pleasant. I had met up with a client in the Rockville center area.

Paid $1 for parking so I wouldn’t get a parking ticket.  Over Lunch I worked through my Google Reader as I had fallen behind my favorite blogs. When lunch was over I went… Read More

Long Island Traffic!

I gave up sitting in traffic  and decided when I was in the East Meadow area, I would stop at Eisenhower Park. I actually originally uploaded this video from the park using the… Read More

WiFi Hunting – Uniondale, Long Island

Today I spent some time, early this morning, doing some WiFi hunting in the Uniondale, long Island area. I updated my spreadsheet with the results. I was a bit disappointed in what I found. I got up really early and did my usual routine by headed to the local Starbucks in Uniondale located on Hempstead Trnpk. The day started out fine as the local Starbucks obviously has AT&T access and is close enough to an Optimum WiFi hotspot to use either/or network. That’s exactly what I was hoping for. As… Read More
