More on Where to Get Cheap (and Sometimes Free) Internet Service

In previous posts we have covered where to get low-cost internet services aimed at families with kids who are eligible for the free lunch program.  But what about childless grownups?  The Connect 2 Compete people have a page of cheapies that they are associated with--and most of those are for families with kids.  but a couple of them aren't.  Wilco is one for Philadelphia residents.  It's not free, but it's cheap. 

A more nationwide on is Freedompop which allows free usage up to 1 GB data free each month, according to Connect 2 Compete's page.  If you go above your free usage, you are automatically charged $10.  According to an article on  the websiteTechland, there may be hidden charges if you don't pay attention, so be sure to read their terms of service page.  Like most commercial websites it's not easy to find, but Techland was nice enough to do it for us.  Of course, it you want to sit in the public library (many of which, like mine, have wi-fit), and do your Freedompop searching at night, that could cut out those nasty overages.
