Get a room NEAR a Major Hotel,Starbucks,library ETC. that has WI-FI and use this method for extending your WI-FI range.
What if it is password Protected ? A nice tip for the bellman/clerk/waitress can get it Or hack it many methods on Youtube.com
Steal Internet, I do not naturally think of ways to break rules or steal.
I will fake a airplane ticket because the system for Visa is corrupt and incredibly stupid.
Are the Philipines Hotel and owners corrupt and incredibly stupid?

...hahaha.funny one..Mr. 4 DUIs
I do naturally track down evil people.
I am constantly frustrated by our ISP in both Manila and Boracay but since our income is not so depended on such services I have adopted a laid back attitude like with Brown Outs or when the electricity reached low peaks and neither our desk top computer nor our 53 inch big screen Tv has enough power to function here at Casa Camilla Boracay.
One of our yearly guests from Switzerland, Theo, an Old Asia Hand based in Asia for most of his lifetime like myself who plays Poker professionally On-Line has his own small generator and hooked up directly with two ISP so should he be in a tournament if theres brown -out or one ISP DOWN then he can continue playing. He plays 3 AM to 9AM as this is a segment of time when less professional on-line poker players world -wide participate as he says thats when the housewives play. Maybe you ought to consider living on the beach between international travel adventures like Theo. He rents one of our new studio apartment units at U$3500 / year or U$10/day and knows if if likes to travel we offer a sub-let option of renting it out daily from P1500 to P2500 / night depending on the time of the year.
I dont understand. Cant you use the blackberry with Verizon as backup internet? Is it possible to tethering it to your computer? Or is the speed to slow for your work?
Such trivial issues as FREE Wi-Fi is at Philippine hotel owners bottom of the list of priorities barely worth their concern. As an expense monthly its less than the cost of one employee and FAR less than water or electricity. We found out a few of our yearly guests were stealing our Wi-Fi and finally after maybe 6 month got around to changing it to direct cable access with a limitation of 8 per DSL connection. There are certain expenses that are considered in the toilet paper category.
To JD, Small World, I grew up in Iowa also.
To Andy, The white sand beach in Ilocos Norte is PAGUDPUD and weve stayed overnight there twice when driving up along the coast all the way past Aparri in the NE tip of Luzon. The weather noticibly cooler there and now after the Marcos installed those huge Wind Generators the panoramic view of the coastline has been interrupted. But within a few years the Iloconos might have most of the electricity cheaper than any other province. Time will Tell.
Tell me the price of a cheap Hotel here, I want a number, I do not want to read about another deserted beach in the Philippines. I need price.
All the incredibly stupid Americans will be dead in the next 10 years, in the Philippines they are being replaced by Cyber S...ex, this will be your next wave of American clients. There are 100s of dating sites for the Philippines, these men need to find their women.
The Philippines is not the only country on the planet, I believe tourism will decrease in the Philippines because the country does not compete globally.
The Philippines is a rather crazy place to come for a one-destination trip, if the tourism department had a clue, they would know this. If not for WW II and the Vietnam War this place would be vacant of Americans, Australians and Europeans.
I would learn Korean, Chinese and Japanese, this is the present future.
