If you have wifi at home you should be able to connect to it. You have a password for a safe connection. Some free wifi hot spots require a password but the business will provide you with it if you ask them. Cellular service costs on a monthly basis and most tablets with the cellular option are more expensive.
1.) If you have internet service at your home, you can purchase a wireless router to set up wifi in your home. Then you can log on with your tablet.
2.) There are tablets that have both wifi and cellular service capabilities. They usually cost more and you have to pay a monthly fee for the cellular service.
I use the wifi with my Hisense 7 pro.
The tablet connects wirelessly to the internet which can be your own home wireless network using a router set up with your broadband or by connecting to public WiFi hotspots. Hotspots can be places such as restaurants or even hotels you stay at providing you with the password. Your tablet will search for available networks to connect to when changing locations. If a password is needed, it will ask for one to connect.
I have used WiFi where ever it is available. Even through my phone.
you don't need a cellular account, it will pick up wifi and you can use a mini HDMI cord with it also.
This is a wifi only tablet, so you need to be connected to wifi to surf the web or get email. There are a lot of locations that offer free wifi, such as McDonald's and Starbucks. You don't need any special access or accounts for free wifi service if you are out and about and want to connect. Generally, the only thing you'll have to do to get access to a free network, is connect and accept their terms of service which usually pop up when you open your browser. If you do not have wifi at your home, you will not be able to get on the internet their. But if you have wired internet at home, it's a pretty easy thing to add a wireless router.
You say you have broadband through the city. If you have internet of any kind coming into your home, you can add a wireless router and use the Hisense Sero 7 or ANY wi-fi enabled tablet. And, yes, there are PLENTY of places that offer free wi-fi and the Sero 7 Pro connects with no problem. The only reason you'd need 3G or 4G in your tablet is if you wanted to use it while traveling, such as using the map program as a GPS receiver. And, of course, many apps don't even require internet connectivity to work.
I don't believe you need cellular. paying forit on the outside is the same as what is free so why are you paying. Try it its fun and see for yourself how it works. You will enjoy
