I was a brighthouse customer. Being a brighthouse customer, I had access to wifi hotspots that brighthouse had installed all over the place here where I live. Since I had a brighthouse account, I was able to log into those hotspots using my account login/password combo and utilize these brighthouse owned hotspots.
Now I have Verizon and all of the hotspots that they say you can connect to actually belong to businesses so unless I want to walk from the marina to downlown to access a spot, I am out of luck.
Why can't verizon install some hotspots that we can actually use. Wifi hotspots was a big selling point right up until the time when I found out that they are only listing hotspots that I could have used for free anyway because the business has it set up for my use.
Big deal. Put some connections on the telephone poles like brighthouse or however they are doing it. You can even charge those people without an account for time usage like brighthouse does.
How disappointing to find out that this big selling point was really nothing more than something I could have accessed anyway.
