Wireless Fidelity (Wi-Fi)WiFi technology is a mechanism that allows electronic devices like laptops, video game consoles, tablets and smartphones to exchange data across a network or the internet. Access points, or WiFi Hotspots, depending on its security settings, allow you to connect to specific networks in order to access the internet or private networks.
A Wi-Fi-enabled device can connect to the Internet when within range of a wireless network that is connected to the Internet (Wi-Fi LAN). The coverage of one or more (interconnected) access points can comprise an area as small as a few rooms or as large as many square miles. However, coverage in the larger area may depend on a group of access points with overlapping coverage.
Wi-Fi provides service in private homes, high street chains and independent businesses, as well as in public spaces at Wi-Fi hotspots set up either free-of-charge or commercially. Organizations and businesses, such as airports, hotels, restaurants, and coffee shops often provide free-use hotspots to attract customers.
