Five ways to Get Free Access to the Internet
Ever wished to get connected to the internet immediately but no idea where or how? We hope that these five ways to get free internet access can help you in your dire need.
Sometimes the best things in life are free, and a speedy internet connection can be seen as a godsend when we need it the most. While we wish for telecoms to provide full free internet services such as Freedom Pop over in the US, we rely on these methods to access the world wide web for free and keep ourselves updated.
Subscribe to Free Internet Services. If you want it to be the safe and hassle-free way, then there’s the current Free internet/FB promos by the top telecoms in the country. Smart currently upgraded their free internet service to add Free FB on top of the already existent 30MB free data per day, and a one-time registration which resets your free internet counter back to 30MB was implemented instead of daily subscriptions. That one ends a little less than a month from now. Globe, on the other hand, only has Free FB.
Use an app. There are free apps on the stores that can allegedly provide free internet. One is Psiphon, an app on the Google Play store that can access everything on the Internet with its own VPNs and censorship circumvention tools, touted as ‘the best tool for accessing the open Internet‘.
Configure phone network settings. Another way to circumvent and bypass the current network restrictions is to change your APN settings. There are a lot of those floating around other phone-centric websites. Tried a few of them before, and they work. If you’re not careful enough, chances are you’ll get your phone number blocked or the network will reverse your settings back to the original.
Use free Wifi in establishments. Malls, fastfood chains, coffee shops, and restaurants now offer free internet service as part of its consumer perks to lure customers. This seems to be a top choice for students when they choose an establishment to stay on for reviews and group meetings. Some can be accessed upon a purchase, others by just visiting alone. SM Supermalls lets you access its WiFi connection for strictly an hour everyday, and Ayala Malls needs your Facebook credentials to access its free internet service.
Scan your neighborhood for unlocked WiFi connections. No, seriously. If you have a neighbor whose unsecured WiFi connection is within your home’s reach, it’s your best bet to access the web without leaving your home too far. Don’t forget to ask for permission to gain access to it as a sign of courtesy.
Using the internet has always been a right for everyone, and these are some of the ways you can get them at your fingertips. Did we miss anything? Let us know in the comments section below.
