Atlanta airport plan for free Wi-Fi moves ahead
Question of the Day
ATLANTA (AP) - Atlanta airport officials plan to seek approval for improvements that would pave the way for free Wi-Fi for travelers.
The Atlanta City Council could approve the contract later this month. Reese McCranie said that if that happens, the free Wi-Fi could be ready to launch by the end of March.
Authorities say the airport could be able to support as many as 15,000 Wi-Fi users at once when the system is up and running. Currently only 4,000 can get on the paid Wi-Fi system. Hartsfield-Jackson, the world’s busiest airport, serves as many as 250,000 passengers a day.
