Poor Cellular Performance at LAX

In the Los Angeles Times:
Mobile performance at LAX? Underwhelming, and that's being charitable, a new report shows

If you think your cellphone is sluggish at LAX, it’s not your imagination.

“Mobile network performance at Los Angeles International has often struggled,” says a new report from RootMetrics, an independent mobile analytics firm based in the Seattle area.

Looking at AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile and Verizon, the report, released Tuesday, said downloads at LAX topped out at 2.8 Mbps.

Here’s a guide to download speeds and why they matter.

That’s not very fast as you see on the download guide.

On a rank listing of service providers’ speed at 50 airports, LAX was No. 50.

Except that in my experience the free LAX WiFi is even slower than mobile data and the free access is limited to 45 minutes.
