Dubai Airport Gets First Hand on World's Fastest Free WiFi; Management Hopes to Add 6,000 WiFi Access in the Future
There's no doubt that the UAE, Dubai, in particular, is one of the fastest growing cities all over the world. With the latest innovations and state of the art buildings on its cap, Dubai now boasts one of the fastest internet services across its airport terminals.
According to the latest news, the WOW-Fi is an internet service that caters millions of users with its 100mbps speed per second, said to be 10 times faster than the average internet used by locals across the UAE region.
The project began last year when it was first launched Dubai International (DXB) and Dubai World Central (DWC) in December. Interestingly, the service is free and is available to all passengers passing through Dubai International (DXB).
The latest update on the free Dubai WiFi is the airport's investment on at least 6,000 new Wi-Fi access. This will allow the service to continue its excellent speed all over the airport terminal.
In a statement from Executive Vice President of Technology and Infrastructure at Dubai Airports Michael Ibbitson, he said "As the biggest international airport in the world, we are at the heart of many journeys across the globe.
To support these travelers, 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."
He also revealed that since the launching of Dubai's WOW-Fi, at least 100,000 unique users were recorded in two months time. As the service continues, Ibbitson hopes to impress at least 89 million users in DXB this 2017.
Apparently, the team behind Dubai International's success continue to seek new innovations for the airport in order to satisfy the customers that arrive in the country each year. "We are always looking at ways to enhance airport experience for our customers by introducing the latest and best in technology and constantly making improvements to our existing services and facilities."
