Short-term ISP in Champaign, IL
June 11, 2014 11:44 AM Subscribe
I moved to Champaign last weekend (will be here until mid-August) and my plan to use the library as my ISP is already wearing on me. It seems that everyone hates Comcast—I haven't been able to reach customer service to ask about options, so I get that already. My post-August plans are up in the air, therefore I don't want to sign a 12 month contract even if it can be transferred to another location. What are my options for short-term internet access?

Note: I've already looked for unsecured wireless connections—apparently, everyone in my building/neighborhood knows how to secure their setup.
Caveat: for the past several years, wi-fi has been included in rent. The last time I had to personally deal with this, I had a land-line and a dial-up connection. In other words, assume I'm clueless.
