San Jose Airport Under Crazy Construction But Has Free WiFi

January 26, 2009 at 8:55 AM | by | ()

Mad thanks to a reader for reminding us that San Jose International Airport has free WiFi. We actually rolled through the airport last month and snapped this shot of the free WiFi advertisement. But in the holiday madness we forgot to add SJC to our Airport WiFi Map. But don't worry, now it's on there.

The airport actually began offering the free service back in May. Here's the official info on where at SJC to go online:

Free wireless Internet in San José now is available in all public areas of both Terminal A and Terminal C, with the exception of the Terminal A baggage claim area. As the airport completes its comprehensive construction program to replace and renovate its terminals, free Wi Fi also will be included in the new Terminal B and North Concourse when placed in service.

Ahh...about that construction. Work has been ongoing here for a long time. The airport is actually building a new terminal, worth around $1.8 billion which will serve Southwest. The construction was expected to be done next year (this was a plan that was introduced way back in 1997) but it looks like 2010 is the new opening date.

San Jose Airport WiFi

Thanks for the plug for SJC Free WiFi. Just an update for you -- we've already added coverage in our Terminal A Baggage Claim area, so all public areas of our airport have Free WiFi now. As construction on our modernization program is completed over the coming two years, WiFi will continue to be a much appreciated amenity for Silicon Valley's airport.
