Just over a month ago, in a blog post I posed the question: “Where are the local WiFi Hotspots?” The list below is compiled from my personal experience and the comments received. The blog was posted to Portsmouth, Tiverton and Middletown Patches. I know there are others and certainly more in Newport, so it is not too late to add to the list. So far, this includes:
Portsmouth WiFi Hotspots:
Tiverton WiFi Hotspots:
Black Goose Cafe
Dunkin' Donuts on Main Road
Tiverton Public Libraries - Essex and Union
Middletown WiFi Hotspots:
McDonald's on West Main Road
The Daily Shake
Middletown Public Library
Cornucopia Cafe and Catering at Wyatt Square
Chris Heaton recommended a WiFi Hotspot app http://www.jiwire.com/iphone which I haven’t tried yet. Since Apple no longer allows IPOD WiFi apps that actually searches for signals instead of referring to a database, I’ve been disappointed in the usefulness of such apps, but I may give this one a shot.
I wonder if anyone from the Chamber of Commerce or the Newport Visitor’s Bureau is or has compiled a list of available WiFi hotspots on the island?
