Since Thursday I knew that there is free wifi in the hospital lobby so I planned to make a discussion while waiting for my students. I was able to take a picture of our beadle who was preparing the logbook where the clinical instructors will sign in the 'time in'. I was able to message my son on chat. I would switch off my phone while in the ward because the battery gets drained quickly. There is no network coverage in the area. When we went up to the 3rd floor, my student opened her phone and said there is also wifi in that area. I thought of opening my phone but I can't connect. Well, I didn't expect I can connect because I was feeling so sick and nauseated. My students used the wifi though to finish their paper works and case studies. At least their duty day was not futile. They did something productive.

Yes and I will check their assignments tomorrow. I have not felt yet the enthusiasm to read their requirements.

I am quite hesitant in using public Wi-Fi. I bring my mobile Wi-Fi with me, or use my mobile data. But there are times, I try to avoid going online while I am out of the house.

But why? I guess you have some secret files in your phone that can be copied by others through Bluetooth.

@ridingbet I am afraid my accounts will be hacked, not just social media accounts but also my account at work.

@brokenbee do you have the same password for each of your social media and work accounts, even PayPal?

Yay! Public wi-fi's are so very useful nowadays, I'm hoping they'll enhance the wi-fi coverage.

with the coming of the 3rd telecommunications company, i hope this one will give the other 2 a run for their money. not Smart or Globe wifi, but maybe another network in the running

@ridingbet I head that too, but I'm afraid that other big companies will stop outsiders.

@tech40 there should be free choice of the subscribers. The more the better.

In the Center too, there is a free wifi but I'm not using it because it's very slow. That means a lot of people are login and using the free wireless.

yes, and maybe even those who are the 'bantays' of the patients, they do connect through wifi as well.

@ridingbet Yes, it will slow down the connection that is why I turned off the Wifi of my phone and use Data instead

It is always nice to find free wifi when I visit some places. Our main hospital is one of the places that has guaranteed free Wifi

our government has made a law that all public institutions and placed here in my country should have free WiFi access. i guess the 2 giant telecommunicatiion companies are not secure anymore.
