Dubai Airports home to world’s fastest WiFi
Dubai Airports is investing in more than 6,000 new WiFi access points
Following a recent upgrade, Dubai Airports now offer the world's fastest free WiFi connection to millions of passengers that travel each month.
The WiFi, dubbed WOW-Fi, provides a connection up to 100mbps which enables faster downloads and uploads of emails, images, videos and social media updates at Dubai International and Dubai World Central airports.
Michael Ibbitson, executive vice president of Technology and Infrastructure at Dubai Airports, said: "To support these travellers, late last year we launched unlimited free high-speed WiFi across our airports but our goal was to offer something they have never experienced at an airport before.
"During the two months since the soft launch of WOW-Fi, the service has been enjoyed by an average of over 100,000 unique users per day. We are certain the WOW-Fi experience will impress the 89 million passengers we expect to welcome at DXB in 2017," he added.
To ensure the speed and reliability, Dubai Airports is investing in more than 6,000 new WiFi access points to upgrade the entire wireless network infrastructure across both airports.
