Free Wifi at Washington Dulles (IAD)

Free Wifi at Washington Dulles (IAD)

I’ve gotten into the habit of listing whether or not the airports I’m in have free Wifi access.

With that I’m happy to add another airport to the list of those with free Wifi: Washington DC’s Dulles International Airport.

The wifi is courtesy of AT&T. I tried it out and it’s not bad considering it’s free. Email loaded quickly and ordinary surfing was fine.

I didn’t try to watch any videos as you really shouldn’t be trying to do so over a public, shared connection anyway. Try to save some bandwith for other folk.

The cherry on top was that you can access the wifi without having to give up your email address or go through some other tedious form of sign up.

Regardless of the prompt for a username and pass you can just log in by pressing connect. No muss, no fuss.

Free Wifi Hotspots at Mactan Domestic Airport

As a follow up to yesterday’s post I’ll be talking about some free hotspots in the Mactan Domestic Airport. (They just recently broke ground on a new terminal for the Mactan airport and they’re planning to renovate as well the existing terminal so for the next couple of years the infrastructure there will be in flux.)

Free Wifi Hotspots at NAIA Terminal 2

Wifi is considered a necessity these days, some going so far as arguing it’s a basic human right. (That would make it equal to other essential human requirements such as food and shelter.)

Getting a free wireless connection is pretty ubiquitous abroad (public parks in Switzerland have free wifi) but it’s still rare in Philippine public spaces.

I was pleasantly surprised then that free wifi does exist at Manila’s airport (well, NAIA Terminal 2 at least) and even more shocking, it works pretty well.
