LinkNYC Launches- Offers FREE WiFi, Nationwide Calls & More


When I see a payphone around New York City, I have to say that I’m always surprised. Who thought there were any left?

Pretty much everyone has a cell phone so the need for public phones is pretty much non-existent. (I could see them being useful in some areas for tourists though.)

A few days back an amazing, new communications network was launched in NYC that will replace the city’s payphones- LinkNYC. Continue reading LinkNYC Launches- Offers FREE WiFi, Nationwide Calls & More

I don’t know about you but my WiFi at home can be pretty inconsistent. The connection can drop at times or just be extremely slow.

What if you plan to visit Cuba and want to get online? Continue reading How To Use WiFi in Cuba

What if there was another way to pay for inflight wifi rather than cash. Would you consider paying for wifi with miles? Continue reading Pay For Wifi With Miles on United

With Cuba being possibly the hottest and most talked about travel destination, here is a bit of good news, kind of…

I’ve heard that WiFi is almost non-existent on the island of Cuba. When you can find a connection it can tend to be quite slow but also quite expensive making it best to probably unplug during your visit.

However, Engadget reports that “Cuba is getting island-wide WiFi hotspots next month“. Continue reading Cuba Getting WiFi Hotspots Around Island
