Tools for travelers: Airport Wi-Fi guides

Someday, when I’m president, there will be free, reliable, secure Wi-Fi everywhere.

Especially in all airports and, now that the technology has caught up, in all airplanes.

In the meantime, travelers sometimes need to hunt and peck to find out what service is available where.  One site trying to help: airportwifiguide.com.

I like the map that links to airports with free Wi-Fi, the state-by-state list of airports, and the fact that some travelers are  sending in tips.

But they need more ‘informers.’  I tried searching for the free Wi-Fi services at Orlando International Airport and didn’t find that airport – or its free Wi-Fi service – listed.   Ditto for Fort Lauderdale.

So, if you have a moment, send them your finds.

In the meantime,the Wi-Fi-FreeSpot Directory seems to have a more comprehensive list of airports with free Wi-Fi and includes airports beyond North America, as well as hotels, restaurants, and other places.

So…Wi-Fi-wise, we’re moving in the right direction.

Let me know if you’ve found other comprehensive airport Wi-Fi guides we can add to the toolbox.
