San Francisco International Airport to get free Wi-Fi

SFO joins Bay Area airports in free wireless

San Francisco International Airport today said it would roll out free Wi-Fi. Its terminals will switch from T-Mobile's paid service to free access on September 1. Airport officials explained the move as a reaction to surveys, which found that most customers weren't willing to pay for Internet service, especially as it takes time to sign on.

SFO is the last of the three major San Francisco Bay Area airports to offer free wireless access, as San Jose and later Oakland both switched their own business models starting from 2008. The switch could be particularly helpful to AT&T, as iPad and iPhone owners and others now don't have to either pay for service or use the carrier's bogged down cellular network in the area to get online while waiting for flights.

    If it is...

    ... he certainly has had no effect on his homebase. You must not have flown through O'Hare lately. Or on United. Where you soon will be able to "Opt" to sit in a seat at all instead of the default baggage compartment.

    All inclusive

    It really should be the norm for services such as this to be included when you fly. The gouging of prisoners has gone on for too long.
