Wi-Fi internet is already very popular among Internet users, but within a few years I predict it will be the standard for all users. The convenience is unmatched and many new devices are being built with Wi-Fi capabilities already included. Most new laptops and PDAs are designed with Wi-Fi use in mind.

Wi-Fi Internet Here to Stay

Wi-Fi, short for Wireless Fidelity, is a way to access the Internet without any cables or sophisticated hardware. Just as the telecommunications industry has moved away from cables toward mobile phones, the computing industry is following suit. Wires and cables are awkward and you're never guaranteed to find a port. With a wireless system, this worry becomes obsolete.

Wi-Fi internet gives users high speed connections at a location known as a hotspot. A hotspot is a business that has installed a kit to its own high speed connection enabling users with wireless enabled devices to have access to the Internet within a certain range of the source. If the source is located in an open area like a hotel convention center, you can get a strong signal anywhere within a few thousand yards. If the source is in a more enclosed location, a cafe for example, customers within about a two thousand square yard range can log on.

Wi-Fi internet is being offered by more and more businesses of all types as a way to attract new business. It is working too. Whether it is a cafe, restaurant, or hotel, patrons are drawn to the availability of high speed wireless access. Many of these businesses are even offering free service to customers as a bonus for choosing them. It appears to be a win-win situation for all parties. Customers have the benefit of wireless internet while businesses attract more customers and have them come back more frequently.
