Is there a fee for using WiFi abroad? Debunking myths and safe alternatives

Added: 17.01.2024, Updated: 05.02.2024,

Traveling abroad presents us with many dilemmas, and Internet access is one of them. Is there a fee for using WiFi abroad? Well, contrary to the common opinion of people who used this option many years ago - not always. In this article, we'll dispel the myth about the prevalence of paid hotspots and take a look at alternatives, particularly focusing on safe and attractive options such as the XOXO WiFi service.

Myth: Using WiFi abroad always incurs fees

The first myth to dispel (which is still quite popular among travelers) is the notion that WiFi access abroad is always charged. Indeed, some hotels are still able to charge extra for this service, and this is usually due to the fact that the availability of Internet outside a given location can still be very difficult. In addition, in former years, where this service was only first implemented, establishments were able to charge for the use of the network due to the initial high cost.

However, nowadays many places, such as cafes, hotels and airports, offer free Internet access. Due to the fact that staying online has become a basic need not only for every traveler, but simply for human beings, and with the development of technology - almost all WiFi hotspots around the world have become free of charge, and one should hardly now look for those for which one has to pay extra.

The danger of free Wi-Fi hotspots

While the myth of paid WiFi has been debunked, it is important to remember that it is not an option for flawless Internet access. While free hotspots can be a tempting option for online communication or web surfing, it's worth being aware of the potential risks associated with their use.

Routers providing hotspot access often lack adequate security (such as WPA3 encryption), making them an easy target for hackers looking to take control of sensitive personal data. While the vision of a free Internet connection is tempting - at the same time one must remember that the security of virtual data is to be put above that.
