Ummm... I have been using the internet for almost 20 years, going back to dial up days. I have never found it necessary to access my neighbour's network. If I ever find the need to, I'd likely use a VPN (unless they shared their WiFi with me) as I'd expect they'd have a firewall. In the interest of security, you don't leave your network wide open to whoever happens to live near you.

The more you talk, the more I get the impression you had to improvise something, because you simply didn't have available things we have taken for granted for many years. In Canada, it's almost impossible to be in a location so remote that you couldn't have phone and internet access, even if only via satellite. In urban, suburban and even rural areas, if you don't have a connection, it's because you chose not to, not because it isn't available in some form. In fact, some people are complaining about others using the internet or phones when they're out camping and want to get away from it all!
