From LAX to Dublin, This Month Brings Travelers Free WiFi Access

September 10, 2012 at 9:29 AM | by | Comments (0)

It seems like the smaller regional airports love providing their travelers with free WiFi, but unfortunately we find that the larger cities and hubs just aren’t down with the complimentary internet access. Recently we heard that access at Chicago’s airports was getting a little more affordable—although not free—and now it looks like the cheap connectivity is spreading to a couple more airports.

Obviously the airport in Los Angeles handles plenty of planes and people, and thankfully they’re now adding free WiFi to their list of offerings. Unfortunately there’s kind of a catch, so it’s not as simple as just logging on and streaming Netflix and Hulu for hours and hours. The new WiFi will be yours to enjoy for about 45 minutes.

DFW Teams Up with AT&T for Free Airport WiFi, Finally

April 11, 2012 at 8:55 AM | by | Comments (0)

With in-flight WiFi gaining popularity, the importance of WiFi in the terminal isn’t exactly quite the necessity it once was. Nonetheless, that hardly means that we’re going to pass up some free terminal-wide WiFi, especially in a pretty big airport. Thankfully, Dallas-Ft. Worth International Airport is the latest airport to flip the WiFi switch from costly to complimentary, and it's going to be accessible to travelers throughout the terminals, concourses, and even the parking garages. We’re just kind of curious if you can pick up a signal up in the airport’s Skylink train.

Airport officials at DFW are teaming up with everyone’s favorite mobile technology carrier—kidding—AT&T to offer up the free WiFi to the masses. It sounds like the behind-the-scenes work is already underway, and that things should be good to go as soon as September. Unfortunately there’s a bit of a catch—of course there is—as you’ll need to watch a 30-second commercial before signing into the service for the first time.

If you haven't out our comprehensive and ever-updating Airport WiFi Map, you totally should! Thanks to tips from readers and our own traveling, we're adding new airport with internet weekly, and today we've happily got three new additions for it!

· BOS - Boston Logan Airport has offered wireless internet in their terminals for some time, but it was always pay-per-hour. After Google so successfully ran a free WiFi promotion over the holiday however, which included Logan, the airport saw internet usage shoot up remarkably, and so—starting now—they've decided to provide travelers with free WiFi through January 2012.

Detroit Airport Might Be Spacious And Pretty, But The WiFi Sucks

Where: Detroit Metro Wayne Country Airport [map], Detroit, MI, United States
October 14, 2009 at 2:08 PM | by | Comments (3)

Update: Ok fine, so as the DTW rep points out in the comments, Boingo is available in both terminals. But our own experience convinced us otherwise, and we recommend checking out the Airport WiFi map (click the icon to the right) to note that most airports tagged have free Wifi; something DTW should think about if they can afford the snazziness evident elsewhere.

We may have told you time and time again about the wonders of Detroit's Wayne Country Airport, but despite the very cool in-terminal monorail and relaxing LED light tunnel, Detroit is not as down with technology as you think.

In particular we refer to their Airport WiFi situation, which is sad to say the least. They've had internet in their Smith terminal since 2004, but with that terminal currently sitting empty Detroit has had to equip the rest of the airport. These days, you can log into the 'net from Delta/Northwest's McNamara Terminal only, and it's a Boingo frontier there.

It's Hard to Sign On at Guadalajara Airport

October 9, 2009 at 2:15 PM | by | Comments (3)

UPDATE: We were able to find Free WiFi in the departures terminal where Mexicana is located. Chili's has a free WiFi network. We also found out that Boingo Hotspot (which was still incredibly slow to load) was $7.95 USD per day.)

Yesterday, we landed at Aeropuerto Internacionale de Guadalajara in Mexico. While waiting for our transportation to our hotel, we sat down in front of the Starbucks just outside the baggage claim. There were plenty of seats and it was right across from a Burger King. The Whopper Doble con queso y tocino was might tempting at this point.

However, we were focused on what the internet offerings were like in the airport. We selected the network Prodigy Movil from our network options and we were taken to a page that allowed Infinitum users to connect for free. All they have to do is sign in with their username and password. But we don't have an account so we selected the Hotspot directory to see what our options were.

San Diego Airport's WiFi May Be Slow, But At Least It's Free

June 29, 2009 at 3:27 PM | by | Comments (0)

Nothing's better than getting some sweet, sweet Airport WiFi tips in our inbox, and thanks to an eagle-eyed (or rather, eagle-laptoped?) reader, we can add San Diego International to our growing list of WiFi-equipped airports.

It doesn't stop at simply providing a signal however, since San Diego goes all the way and gives their travelers Free WiFi in all terminals. This is well and good, but don't expect to download much or visit flash-heavy sites since the connection is rumored to be weak and, depending on how busy the airport is, approaching low dial-up speeds.

Still, any internet is better than no internet and free internet is better than pay internet, so San Diego beats most other airports in our books.

Baltimore Airport Not Hip to Free WiFi

May 5, 2009 at 2:48 PM | by | Comments (0)

Last week Baltimore celebrated the unveiling of the first TSA checkpoint in the country -- and by celebrated, we assume they mean "did nothing whatsoever to mark the occasion." What they should have done was sprayed it with some ceremonial Purel, since the first cases of swine flu were also officially announced last week, but that might have caused more panic than it was worth.

If you failed to get that first special checkpoint a present -- perhaps, a 3.3-ounce bottle of poison -- you still have time to send it a proper e-card, but you'll have to pony up $7.95 for WiFi access in the terminal. If only the TSA would pony up for that.

So what's your favorite TSA checkpoint? Sarcasm fully installed, tell us what airport has the best or worst wireless access. No one has to know it was you.

WiFi Freedom for All at PHL (But Only On Weekends)

April 29, 2009 at 9:41 AM | by | Comments (0)

Pennsylvania Senator Arlen Specter decided to switch parties this week. A moderate, idiosyncratic Republican at best, Specter said he'd grown disillusioned from the core of the party and will be moving his desk over to the other side of the aisle -- conveniently, with plenty of time to spare before what would have been a fierce primary challenge for his seat in 2010.

Arlen Specter probably got an even exchange of cheers to jeers from his constituents and fellow representatives this week, but he shouldn't read them till Saturday: That's when Philadelphia Airport offers free WiFi to passengers, every weekend. The good news is, the most toxic responses can be neutralized by his interns, who if they happen to be college students can get free WiFi all week. Connections soared after the airport instituted this plan in early 2008, but they're taking that as a good sign to continue to dangle that freebie at travelers. Monday through Friday, it's Boingo all the way.

Even if you didn't make a major job change this week, we'd love to hear about the airport where you're reading this.
