Houston Forming an Internet Bubble?


Lately, there has been a lot of discussions about the possibility of expanding wi-fi transmitters throughout the city so that Internet access is available at any given time, from any given place.

ABC 13 has a good article here.

I always end up at wi-fi spots all over city…from the University of Houston parking lots to the Montrose coffee shops to the Continental Lounge at IAH. Where do you go to get your wi-fi on?

    A couple of great (free) wiFi spots are: Tropioca (Milam @ Drew) and any of the NHMCCD colleges.

    Since I now live in the middle of nowhere, my only option for free wifi away from home is Panera bread. Although with killer hot chocolate, orange scones and broccoli cheddar soup that’s not always a bad thing!!

    Taft Street Coffee… because I work there and live down the street. I stumbled across one today as well at DNR Cafe. It’s on Montrose just south of the bridge over 59.

    I do the Panera Bread thing quite a bit, but soon I will have a cellular internet card for my laptop… and then its “Katie bar the door!!” …. uh, not our Katie – just sayin’ :)
