How do you get internet in a squat? Do you just have comcast come over and hope they don't say anything? Or do you do something else?

Probably best to get a phone, tablet, or laptop with 4G LTE or hotspot. Maybe luck out and find a free wifi connection nearby and possibly use a wifi extender if need be.

It would depend on the squat. If it's something you're doing long term and the owner is deceased or the property is owned by the city, then I would just call your local isp and have it hooked up like any other utility. In fact the more bills in your name, the stronger your case for adverse possession.

If it's a squat you need to keep secret cause the owners will kick you out if found, then yeah, a mobile data plan is probably the way to go.

You can use aircrack to gain access to wifi around you. Its not super technical but if youre clueless about computers mighy be a pain in the peehole to get it to work. Very free and very lowkey.

But if youre trying to stay for the long haul and have the money to pay getting it hooked up in your name is a good idea.

please add more context to your posts or they'll be flagged as spam. this link tells the OP virtually nothing about what this app is for or why you're posting it in response to their question.
Word. I was short on time and assumed whoever clicked it would figure out why I posted that link.

Support StP!

Donations go towards paying our monthly server fees, adding new features to the website, and occasionally putting a burrito in Matt's mouth.

Total amount
$540.00
Goal
$100.00

Monthly Goals

  1. Paying the Bills
    $50.00 of $50.00 - reached!
    The first $50 in donations go towards paying our monthly server fees and adding new features to the website. Once this goal is reached, we'll see about feeding Matt that burrito.
  2. Buy Matt a Beer
    $75.00 of $75.00 - reached!
    Now that we have the bills paid for this month, let's give Matt a hearty thank you by buying him a drink for all the hard work he's done for StP. Hopefully his will help keep him from going insane after a long day of squishing website bugs.
  3. Feed Matt a Burrito
    $100.00 of $100.00 - reached!
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt has a beer in his hand, how about showing him your love by rewarding all his hard work with a big fat burrito to put in his mouth. This will keep him alive while programming new features for the website.
  4. Finance the Shopping Cart
    $200.00 of $200.00 - reached!
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt is fed, perhaps it's time to start planning for those twilight years under the bridge... if only he had that golden shopping cart all the oogles are bragging about these days.
