HONOLULU - Free unlimited Wi-Fi now available throughout the Daniel K Inouye International Airport, with new coverage in Terminals 1 & 2, all thanks to Boingo Wireless and the Hawaii Department of Transportation.
The company facilitating the changes operates wireless networks in major airports, stadiums, campuses, military bases and commercial properties around the world-meaning it can handle large scale mobile demands.
Hotspots like Passpoint are also available-that automatically connect passengers to HNL's Wi-Fi with no log-in or password.
“We will continue to explore public-private partnerships to make amenities, such as free Wi-Fi, available to those traveling to and from Hawaii,” said Governor David Y. Ige. “These improvements will continue to transform our busiest airport into a distinctive, efficient airport and will enhance the experience of our residents and tourists when they travel to and from our islands.”
It soon won't matter which cellular carrier you have, HNL is also implementing a new Distributed Antenna System (DAS), improving connectivity and signal.
“The converged wireless network Boingo built at HNL is designed to deliver a seamless connected experience for passengers across Wi-Fi and cellular services,” said David Hagan, CEO, Boingo. “By deploying this next generation wireless technology, travelers can enjoy fast and free connectivity to stream, surf and share. We congratulate HDOT on this new HNL milestone and look forward to launching Boingo networks at additional airports in Hawaii this year.”
HDOT and Boingo will bring Wi-Fi and DAS networks to Kahului Airport (OGG), Hilo International Airport (ITO), Ellison Onizuka Kona International Airport at Keahole (KOA) and Lihue Airport (LIH) in 2018.
