In an effort to improve traveler experience, the Houston Airport System is introducing free Wi-Fi access to all guests at George Bush Intercontinental Airport (IAH) and William P. Hobby Airport (HOU).
Free Wi-Fi is now available in all terminal areas of Hobby Airport and in terminals A and D at Bush Intercontinental Airport. It will be extended to all of IAH, including terminals B, C and E, by the end of 2014, officials promise.
"This new system improves speed and reliability, and it also introduces our customers to one of the most robust Wi-Fi networks found in any U.S. airport."
"Not only do our customers gain access to free Wi-Fi service, but they're also enjoying a major upgrade over the previous fee-based system," Houston Aviation Director Mario C. Diaz said in a statement. "This new system improves speed and reliability, and it also introduces our customers to one of the most robust Wi-Fi networks found in any U.S. airport."
Boasting faster speed and connection times than the prior system, the new Wi-Fi will average up to 6 megabits per second and offer hundreds of access points for a strong connection and reliable coverage.
Wi-Fi will be available in ticketing lobbies, baggage claims, gate areas, food courts and even garage areas once the system is fully extended later this year.
