Are there ANY temporary internet solutions? - June 8, 2012, 01:56 PM

I work from home and need a good connection.

Verizon can't seem to get their stuff together and my DSL is down.

Sprint 4G doesn't even catch inside the house, and 3G gives me 1997 flashbacks. It's worse than dialup.

Are there any temporary office space solutions around town, or internet cafes, or Wi-Fi hotspot providers?

Some Starbucks will hook you up for free too.

Clearwire also offers a solution:

I've not heard good things at all about Clear, especially downtown in the city.

Get the PDAnet app for your phone, pay the one time $15 I think it is, and then be able to tether your phone to any computer you use...I know you said 3G speeds were slow, but at least it works

did you get the new alghorythm? They were sent out last week. Just check your mail. Funny how they use normal mail to send them.


all of the providers sell hotspots you can buy. what do you mean by verizon can't get their stuff together? I have fios and their wireless router kind of sucks, so if you are refering to that I can understand. Try getting a new antenna for the router or build a range extender out of a soda can. Also trying using wires. OH you too good for wires?


E che cazzo!

Yeah, but it would be pretty torturous to sit all day in a McDonalds. I am hoping to find an option that isn't nearly as ghetto. A solution that lets me concentrate (quiet).

Other than an office rental, any other publically accessible wifi solution is going to have the same problem.

Are these hotspots any better though? I'm tethering my Sprint 4G phone and it is worse than dialup. Only 3G signal inside the house and it drops out all the time.

There is some sort of line signal degradation going inside the house and Verizon keeps sending more and more techs promising solutions but in the meantime I have nothing. I'm sure they will eventually get it done - but I'm losing money every day in the meantime.

I was hoping to do that, but libraries I checked have short interval usage system and if there are people waiting - and there are often people waiting - you get kicked off.

I'm brainstorming on this hoping for a better solution than temporarily moving into my sister's house in Jersey. hahaha
