Everyone's found themselves between appointments with some time to kill and the absolutely urgent need to check Facebook. If you're on a limited data plan, though, all those status updates and Instagram uploads can suck up your data allowance faster than a Dyson. Why not surf on someone else's (freely-given) nickel? All Toronto Public Library locations have free WiFi; so do Yonge-Dundas Square, St. Lawrence Market, Dufferin Grove Park, and Harbourfront Centre. The TTC launched free WiFi at two subway stations last year, too (St. George and Bloor-Yonge). There's also Wireless Toronto, a not-for-profit group that's bringing free WiFi to public spaces around the city; here's the link to a list of their community hotspots.
Here's a map showing just a few of the many handy free-wifi spots around town. Know any other good ones? Why not share in the comments?
