Not so free airport WiFi?

In April, I was happy to find free WiFi access at RDU. After getting passed security this morning, which didn’t take enough time (whenever you expect security to take forever, you just walk right through… it’s a law), I headed to the place that had the free access.

However, selecting the same network as last time (ESSID attwifi) I was depressed to find that a 24 hour pass was now $8. The tmobile network is $10 for the same access. Suck :-(.

I’m at RDU for another 1.5 hours and will be in Philly for another 4 before falling asleep on my way to Barcelona. I went ahead and purchased a day pass. I feel violated. There’s allegedly AT&T hot spots at the airport in Philly but my luck will be that they aren’t in the right terminal, or don’t exist, or are down, or suck, or something.

Seriously though, I am amazed at how quickly I got passed security this morning. It’s a record. I was able to get out of the car, check my bag and get into the terminal in an impressive 10 minutes. Three cheers for low travel volume and friendly and efficient check-in and security personnel.

  1. Wifi in Philly? You’re right, it is only available in some terminals. It really is a crap-shoot, you might get it, you might not. Either way, you’ve got to pay.
