What's a wireless hotspot? It's an area with a wireless signal that lets you connect to the internet or any available computer network.
Local businesses often provide a wireless signal to their customers through Frontier's network. Frontier puts one or more of our wireless devices in or around their location, and the business can give wireless logins to give to their customers.
