    are you in a WiFi coverage area right now?

    Hello!

    I want to ask someone whether he is in an area where WiFi is available. Can I ask it like this; Hey Buddy! are you in a WiFi coverage area right now?

    Please focus on the bold part!

    Thanks

    I found the term 'WiFi covered area' by Google search, see https://www.google.com/webhp?sourcei...overed+area%22

    Just because there happens to be a formal noun phrase, that doesn't mean people say it.

    Thanks for the reply. Your choice is good. But I am actually looking for another alternative. Why I want to ask the way I had suggested here is actually I talk with one person for practicing my English but there is an area with WiFi where he usually comes and talk to me. So he is not always there and of course he can only talk to me whenever he is in that WiFi covered area. So I know there is already WiFi so I would not go to ask whether there is WiFi at all. What I want to know is if he is in that area. I think now you got my point. Is there any natural expression for the way I want to ask him?
