Okay, let me explain. There are some parts of America or Other countries that offer FREE WIFI to those who HAVE a subscription to the Company. It mainly applies for Optimum wifi, most common out there. And since I live in New Jersey, Or rather the East Coast, There's more of these "hotspots." So you can access these hotspots as long as you have an account and it's paid to use wifi. You really don't need a Router/modem at home to use internet if that Hotspot is near you.
Make sense?
And since it's basically a public access point, There's no PF for these "hotspots"
