Google announced today that it is giving free Wi-Fi to at the airports to everyone as part of their Holiday gift to the people. The offer starts today and goes all the way till January 15, 2010.
The gift currently includes 47 airports, including Las Vegas, San Jose, Boston, Baltimore, Burbank, Houston, Indianapolis, Seattle, Miami, Ft. Lauderdale, Orlando, St. Louis and Charlotte. Additionally, as a result of this project, Burbank and Seattle airports will begin offering airport-wide free Wi-Fi indefinitely.
"We’re very happy to extend our Holiday Wi-Fi gift to the millions of people who will spend time in airports over the next few months," said Marissa Mayer, Vice President of Search Products and User Experience at Google. "We know that this is a very hectic travel season for people, and we hope that free Wi-Fi will make both traveling and connecting with friends and family a little bit easier."
Hope this helps some of the frequent travelers or those who are traveling over the holidays and have some long layover times. Also if there is bad weather and you are stranded in the airport then having free internet might give you something to do and pass your time.
Also those traveling on Virgin America flights will have free Wi FI access in flight as well. Hope someone can get good use out of this offer.
