They also use the technology to gather data about customers for marketing purposes. Theres no such thing as a free lunch, so if you are getting a free service from someone, youre probably agreeing to something in return, said Thad Nation, executive director of Wired Wisconsin, a nonprofit group focused on telecommunications issues. For a large retailer, information is as valuable as anything else, Nation said. Businesses wouldnt offer free Wi-Fi if people didnt spend money there and keep coming back. They make sure youre comfortable and have electrical outlets because a happy customer is a repeat customer. Wi-Fi hot spots can ease boredom while waiting for a service, such as a dentist appointment, and sometimes they help keep customers at a business longer so they can spend more money. Some of the growth in hot spot locations has been fueled by more people working in nontraditional settings, including freelance contractors who hang out at coffee shops with a laptop computer and mobile phone as their office tools. If you can work like that, it might as well be in a place with good coffee and food, said Barry Orton, a telecommunications professor at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. You can only work from home for so long, Orton said, before you have to get dressed, get away from the dog, and step away from other domestic distractions.
