Phew! My hometown airport — Los Angeles International Airport — will begin offering free Wi-Fi service beginning as early as this summer.
LAX was ranked the "most social" of all airports worldwide recently based on the number of check-ins to Facebook and other services, but lacked free Internet. On Tuesday, though, it was confirmed via a press release that the Los Angeles Board of Airport Commissioners approved a $663,333 two-year agreement with Advanced Wireless Group LLC to provide free Wi-Fi service to travelers.
But it comes with a slight catch. Passengers will be able to use basic Wi-Fi services for free on sessions lasting up to 45 minutes. Uninterrupted service after that grace period will still come at a yet undetermined price for a 24 hour session.
I'll take it, though.
