O’Hare now has official wifi service. Done by boingo. Imagine my surprise when I arrived in Paris (for a second 5 hour layover) that they also have boingo service.

I still find it amusing that the likelihood of finding free wireless at an airport seems to be inversely correlated with the size of the airport.

On a similar note I’ve often wondered why Microsoft doesn’t have a network installed at SeaTac. Surely their employees spend a great deal of time there. Maybe Bill G. could offer to install free public wifi?!

Boingo? You have to call to cancel, and they are loathe to let you do so. PITA.

Dave is right and it works for hotels too. Roach motel has free internet, the Hilton charges $12 a night…..

No kidding to both of you! The large airports — like O’Hare — you can’t find an internet connection that won’t cost you a pretty penny.

And the Hyatt charges 10 bucks a day for internet, and Courtyard Marriot is free. I guess the hotels that are going after the bussiness traveler have free internet…
