Travel Tip: Tricks for Finding WiFi at Airports

Share on: Share on Google+

If you’re like me, you’re always scrambling to find available free WiFi at airports around the world.

In many cases, the WiFi is either incredibly slow, or it’s free but cuts you off in 30 minutes.

That isn’t particularly helpful if you have three hours between flights.

If you’re a member of an airline lounge, that’s better, because the WiFi is faster.

But what if you’re not a member, and you’re desperate for a connection?

Then park yourself about 20 feet from the entrance door and you can still get a good signal from the lounge WiFi. It’s a trick that always works.

Don’t look for comfortable lounge chairs. You won’t find them.

You’ll be sitting on the floor, but at least you’ll get online.

One word of caution: remember, this is free public WiFi, so don’t do any financial transactions. Unscrupulous travelers can easily steal passwords and account information.
