Briefs: Phoenix Sky Harbor launches WiFi

Dec 22, 2005

Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport is now offering wireless Internet service free of charge.

Phoenix Mayor Phil Gordon, members of the Phoenix City Council and Sky Harbor officials launched WiFi at the Phoenix airport this week, according to an airport release.

The free customer service amenity is available on both sides of security, in retail areas and near the gates at the airport. If a passenger's laptop computer or wireless electronic device is configured to operate in a wireless mode, it will automatically connect to the Internet when powered up near the shops and gates at Sky Harbor.

"The new wireless Internet service will allow travelers to sit in comfort as they log on to check their e-mail or even look at the latest headlines from their home town," said Phoenix Mayor Phil Gordon. "It's part of our on-going commitment to making Phoenix a great place not only to visit, but to do business."
