Two different wireless technologies are widely employed to give mobile users access to the internet. For most of this WIKI, we focus on mobile internet delivered to you by the cell phone network operators. But of course there is another way to go online: via '''Wi-Fi''' technology. This page will focus primarily on getting access to public or commercially-available WiFi hotspots. Although Wi-Fi may be used to access personal portable hotspots, such a mechanism is discussed in more detail in a [[MIFIs|separate page]].[[File:WiFi Logo.svg.png|thumb|253x253px]]

Wi-Fi can be great and should be your preferred choice when it’s available cheap or free. Wi-Fi is often offered in many establishments (see the ''Availability'' section). You just have to log on, be online and eat as much data as you can.

Previously, Wi-Fi used to have some clear advantages over mobile internet. However, with advancements in mobile internet technology (e.g. introduction of 4G and [[5G]]) as well as an increase in mobile data allowances given by telcos, those advantages are diminishing.

Overall, both technologies have their pros and cons and there is no reason why you shouldn’t use both of them if your device carries them both. You will have a replacement technology at your disposal if one of them is not working for any reason and this happens quite frequently. So mobile internet and Wi-Fi don’t always need to compete but complement one another to give you a more reliable internet connection.
