- Nov 3, 2004You can park outside any Schlotzkys and get good reception.
Recently, I just hopped from strip mall to strip mall, suprising how
many small biz and homes have unsecured networks. Heck, I can sit in
my house and pick up 6 nets, 1/2 of them unsecured. Starbucks does
charge a fee via their sbc or tmobile nets. It seems like just about
every eating/drinking establishment around here has free wifi now.
Last night when driving past the local chicken wing place (Wings and
More) they had a new Free Wifi sign hanging up. It seem that in N
Austin you shouldn't have to drive more than a few blocks at most to
get a net.
