Description:
This category is for providing the location of a WiFi Hotspot for accessing the Internet via a wireless device.
TWO photos are required (ONE with WiFi logo of the establishment, or Screenshot of connection), and an English narrative Long Description; an additional 'local description' is welcome if from a non-English speaking country.
Required Naming Convention:
Location Name - Wi-Fi Hotspot - City, State, [and] Country [may be abbreviated]
Expanded Description:
A Hotspot is a Wi-Fi access point or area, in particular for connecting to Internet. Hotspots are found near restaurants, train stations, airports, cafes, libraries and other public places.

Most hotspot equipment is 802.11b or 802.11g wifi compliant and offers some level of security like WPA.

Hotspot Access Points are different from normal access points. They feature:
* A captive portal where users are redirected to for authentication and payment
* A payment option using credit card, Paypal, iPass etc.
* A Walled Garden feature that allows free access to certain sites

Required Naming Convention:
Location Name - Wi-Fi Hotspot - City, State, [and] Country [may be abbreviated]

Instructions for Posting a Wi-Fi Hotspots Waymark:
Do your best to mark the center of the Wi-Fi hotspot with your GPS for the most accurate source.
TWO photos are required with one being a full building shot and the other being a close up clearly showing the name of the site offering the WiFi with local WiFi logo. The second photo could be a screenshot / capture of your device, showing connection, if the establishment offering the WiFi is clearly identified in that.

Submissions deemed to be "Drive By Waymarks" will no longer be accepted into this category! To avoid having to resubmit your Posting, PLEASE write a couple of narrative sentences, appropriate for the site of the WiFi Hotspot. For example, is there seating, and especially, is there any power points, or other charging facilities for your device(s). Did you have to provide an email, Name, or other form of identification?
Include what hours you could expect to use it. Is there a time limit, and what are the 'Trading Hours' or days, of this establishment?
By your submission of a WiFi Hotspot, you are implying that YOU have personally accessed the hotspot successfully.
Instructions for Visiting a Waymark in this Category:
For posting a Visit, at least please describe the ease, or otherwise, of accessing the WiFi Hotspot portal [was it that you were too far away from the 'center' of the Hotspot?], with a narrative of your experience of the establishment. AND a photo, to confirm your presence. Thanks

This is a 24/7 McDonalds outlet, but for Drive-Through; so you should be able to get WiFi whenever you purchase your meal 'over the counter'.
