Public libraries

Another legitimate way to get some free internet access is through a public library. Most libraries nowadays offer an internet access for free. Not only that but surfing in a library comes with many bonuses.
To begin with, a library is one of the quietest places you will find yourself in. Libraries are known for their austere quietness. As a result, this will allow you to work better than you would in most other environments. Secondly, many libraries make you feel comfortable with their nice big seats and large tables. And third, some libraries have their own computers so you don’t even need a smartphone or a laptop to have free internet access.
For internet usage rules in the library, it’s always a good idea to check with the librarian first.
Happy surfing!
