First plugging this into your computer will allow you to reach your existing WiFi and for up to 1/2 mile. Yes this is perfect for students and apartments if you want to share WiFi expenses... even a neighbor!
Second, if you live within a 1/2 mile of some free WiFi (McDonalds or Starbucks have this) then you can tap into that. I know Kris in our office is close by the local library and she was able to pick up their signal and now she uses that!
The other thing you'll love about this is just how easy it is to install. You don't have to be a tech genius to do it. Easy to follow instructions are included!
