Atlanta airport launches free Wi-Fi

June 9, 2014 |

Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport, the world’s busiest airport, now offers travelers free Wi-Fi. According to USA Today, the hub dropped the $5 fee it once charged passengers who wanted to connect to Wi-Fi in its terminals.

The airport’s Internet infrastructure was upgraded to accommodate the projected influx of users that are expected to access the system. The source stated that the new system will allow for 15,000 users at any given time. Previously, the airport’s capacity maxed out at  2,000 users.

According to the airport, Wi-Fi users will be able to access the web, check emails, download presentations, movies and music and connect to a corporate Virtual Private Network.

The airport sees nearly 94 million passengers each year and will provide greater access to the Internet for those out on business travel before boarding a flight.
