Hi I'm trying to put together a list of airports with Wifi for my blog -snip-. What airports have free Wifi? Which ones have paid for Wifi and which ones have none?

I know there is free Wifi in Austin Texas
Paid for in Kansas City (MCI)
Paid for in Dallas Texas (DFW)

[ Edit: Sorry, no promos please... ]

Free in Santiago Airport (SCL)
I'm notreally sure if it's free in all the airport or it's free if you are having something in the Gatsby restaurant.

Pay in London Heathrow and Stansted, Pay in Oslo, Pay in Amsterdam. Stupid idiots if you ask me. Charging the paying customers who have just forked over who knows what in airport taxes to sit and use a 100 dollar a month internet connection split several hundred ways a day.... why not give it for free and get some goodwill from the customers.

If I remember correctly, free in Singapore.

Bangkok airport has free wi-fi, which surprised us. Sam, it is stupid that airports charge as you say it's no skin off their nose if they give free access! I was especially surprised at Heathrow charging for wi-fi, poor show, but it's Britain, what can we expect?

Tell you what, I was surprised to learn that even the blooming Business Class lounge at Heathrow will charge you for wifi internet access!! I'm not sure if this is normal as I normally don't fly business and it was an exception, but this blew me away. And this while the computers standing there are free ?!

Naturally, it just meant I had to pull the ethernet cable out of one of the standalones and use this, but there was only one where this was possible (and I doubt even there it was meant to be), so it's not a viable alternative....

By the way, Rotterdam airport offers free wifi (just remembered that one) :)

That is a disgrace. The more I am in Britain, the more I hate it, eventhough I was born and bred here. You just don't seem to get any goodwill whatsoever!

Paying Business Class prices should mean free wi-fi, I'm especially surprised at that. I think with Heathrow, certain mobile phone companies have got in there first and this means charges for wi-fi access. I know when my boyfriend tried to access the wi-fi last month, it was all vodaphone, T-mobile, and the like, connections.

I suppose one excuse is wi-fi is relatively new in Britain (we seem to be behind on almost everything!), we can only hope that once it's a lot more established more places will offer it free?

I've just found out I'm not supposed to put a link to my blog on this but I wanted you to know I've started an application to map the airport Wifi stuff. It's fun to watch this build.

You have to pay at Boston-Logan (BOS) and Greensboro, NC (GSO) - free WiFi at Canton-Akron, OH (CAK). I think it should be free everywhere! GSO charges $10 each time you use it, ridiculous!!

As far as I remember there is free WIFI in Transit at Vienna airport.
Also couldn't believe you have to pay at Heathrow !
