Turn paid Wi-Fi services on or off in Windows 10
Windows 10 can help you get connected in more places by offering plans to buy from the Store. When the Find paid plans for suggested open hotspots near me setting is turned on in Wi-Fi settings, you’ll be able to buy a paid Wi-Fi plan from the Store when a participating network is in range. When the setting is off, you won’t be offered plans from the Store.
The hotspot will still appear in the list of available networks though, so you can still connect in other ways. To find paid plans from the Store for nearby Wi-Fi hotspots, do the following:
– Select Start Windows button > Settings > Network & Internet > Wi-Fi.
– Turn on Find paid plans for suggested open hotspots near me.
About wifi plan: The paid Wi-Fi data plan you buy doesn’t have any contracts, and only works on the device that you bought it on. Some plans offer international roaming. Check the details for the plan you buy to see if it includes international roaming. The plan starts right away and ends when the specified amount of time expires. Note that the number of participating Wi-Fi networks varies by country or region.
Purchase a paid Wi-Fi plan in Windows 10 to get online in more places, including participating airports, hotels, cafes, and conference centers around the world. Wi-Fi plans use the same payment info that’s stored in your Microsoft account and for buying apps in the Store. You’ll need a PC running Windows 10, the Paid Wi-Fi & Cellular app (comes installed in Windows 10), a Microsoft account, and a participating Wi-Fi network to be in range.
Select the Network icon on the far right of the taskbar, and then see if a Wi-Fi network name appears in the list of networks with Open, suggested underneath it.
Select the Wi-Fi network if it appears there, then select Connect with a data plan.
In the Paid Wi-Fi & Cellular app that opens, choose the plan you want, and then follow the instructions to buy it and get online right away. If you haven’t added a payment method to your Microsoft account, you’ll be asked to do so.
