I downloaded Pokémon GO on my Samsung Galaxy Express and I can play it at home, but when I go outside I can't play because there is no Internet.

How can I play Pokémon GO without Internet outside?


Quite simply, you can't. The game requires an internet connection.

    That's something you have to discuss with your cell phone provider. @LEE – pay Jul 20 '16 at 16:45

    @LEE If your tablet does not have 3G/4G capability, you're going to have to get a smartphone or a tablet that does. – Shadur Jul 22 '16 at 16:29

This is an attempt to build on the obvious "you can't" answer.

Many cities around the world are funding infrastructure projects to connect their cities with free, public WiFi access points. The LinkNYC project is a perfect example of this, as their goal is to work with the New York City government to add WiFi kiosks to every street corner.

I have successfully played Pokemon Go on a device without cellular connection by walking between LinkNYC hotspots in Manhattan.
