HOTSPOTS ARE HERE

Hotspot

Don't have internet at home? Going on a trip and not sure if there will be public WiFi? Then why not borrow a hotspot! A hotspot is a portable device that will allow you to connect up to 10 Wi-Fi-enabled computers or electronic devices almost wherever you are: at home, on the bus, or in the park. The hotspot works in any area covered by the Sprint 3G or 4G LTE network. See if one is available or put one on hold by clicking here. This program was made possible by a generous donation from the Friends of the Rahway Public Library.
