Dubai International Airport (DXB) and Dubai World Central-Al Makhtoum International Airport (DWC) is to make the fastest WiFi speeds in the world available to its passengers – for free.
Using WOW-Fi, DXB and DWC will deliver up to 100mb connection speeds to support its travellers, following last years’ release of unlimited free WiFi across both airports. The aim, according to Michael Ibbitson, executive VP of Technology and Infrastructure for Dubai Airports, who said, ‘As the biggest international airport in the world, we are at the heart of many journeys across the globe. To support these travellers, late last year we launched unlimited free high-speed Wi-Fi across our airports, but our goal was to offer something they have never experienced at an airport before.’
With speeds of up to 100mb, many of the 89 million travellers that pass-through Dubai airports every year, will be able to quickly download emails, images, videos and interact with family and friends on social media, enjoying superfast, reliable and free connectivity.
As a part of the upgrade project, Dubai Airports has also provided required bandwidth via enhanced internet links of 5Gbps each, and is investing in over 6,000 new WiFi access points to ensure reliability and an upgraded wireless network infrastructure over both airports.
