Best information that I can get for now is select on your cell phone, tablet or PC:

  1. CoxWiFi or CoxWiFi_premium.
  2. Launch your Internet browser.
  3. You should get a request for your phone number.  Cox should text you a code to use.  The Wi-Fi is a secured system.  not an open system

As June gets closer, I will edit this when better information becomes available.

San Francisco has had free wifi for over 20 years...when the City did it...they were trashed by conservatives who said it was "liberal waste of Money"

But it's Omaha...

20 years ago, eh? You might want to check your calendar again.  "Wifi" as it's known today, was in it's initial commercial infancy and many component companies actually didn't adopt the popular IEEE 802.11 protocol until 98/99.  Ranges and speeds were initially small and slow.  Couple that with the fact that mobile devices were beyond basic in 1997.  Heck, the US hadn't even adopted texting at that point.

IF SF did have Wifi 20 years ago, it certainly was a waste of money, and there is a majority population of self identifying liberals in SF, soooo...yeah.

Works sorta.
We have that here in CA and a ton of people connect and kill the connections.

I did a ip scan once and found no less than 700 separate connections to the router.
