    We are T-53 to a weeks stay at Rio. We've stayed a few there a few times but now will need internet access and I'm too cheap to pay for internet there lol. Especially since I will only need it less than 10 minutes daily.
    Thanks in advance.

    IF you are paying the resort fee , then you will get free access for one device . Otherwise you have to pay for wifi. At least that is what I have read.

    If you're diamond (or make diamond during your visit), there is free internet access in the diamond lounge.

    Won't be Diamond...MIGHT make Platinum.
    I was at Harrahs for NASCAR weekend and I'm Platinum for another week lol.
    The way they handled it...no resort fees for Platinum members BUT wifi is $11.99 per day.
    I was hoping for free wifi hotspot nearby....such as Starbucks or something.

    For example I've read there's free wifi at the food court at Monte Carlo. Good to know as I have business trip there in June.
    May 17-23 is Anniversary trip at Rio with the wife.
    I will have a rental car too, if that helps.

    Everything I've read regarding wifi @ Rio and most other CET properties is that the wifi reception/connection is below par at best.

    I will be at Rio in less than a month and like you will need wifi for approx. 10-15 daily.

    There appears to be a Starbucks up the road (under a mile) from Rio. It could be walking distance.

    WiFi at the Rio

    Burger King at the Rio has free Wi-Fi. We have used it many times.
