DXB offers travellers world's fastest free Wi-Fi

Dubai International Airport has upgraded its free Wi-Fi speed to 100mpbs, making it the fastest free internet speed offered in any airport in the world.

The aptly named WOW-Fi offers a free connection for all passengers passing through the world’s busiest international airport in the world.

The upgrade follows on DXB’s upgraded free unlimited high-speed Wi-Fi connection across Dubai International, DXB, and Dubai World Central, DWC, in December last year, which offered a 5mbps connection speed.

“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,” said Michael Ibbitson, executive vice president of Technology and Infrastructure at Dubai Airports.

“During the two months since the soft launch of WOW-Fi, the service has been enjoyed by an average of over 100,000 unique users per day. We are certain the WOW-Fi experience will impress the 89 million passengers we expect to welcome at DXB in 2017."

The unlimited free Wi-Fi at DXB connects with just one click. To ensure the speed and reliability, Dubai Airports is investing in more than 6,000 new Wi-Fi access points to upgrade the entire wireless network infrastructure across both airports.
