The Ocean City Free Public Library has perhaps the most reliable WiFi signal on the island.
Choose “OCFPL” if your network manager finds multiple devices. No password or guest sign-in is required. Library has work stations on the second floor. Wireless signal is available throughout the Ocean City Community Cultural Center (including Arts Center, Historical Museum, Atrium area, Aquatics and Fitness Center, Senior Center, Yianni’s Cafe and parking lots). Wireless signal is available even when library is closed.
But the library’s Al Arena and Frank Sheldon helped put together a list of 15 WiFi hotspots in Ocean City to give out to patrons. The list is a work in progress, but it’s a resource worth bookmarking for future reference. Let us know in the comments section if you know of other spots.
