Free Wi-Fi @ OAK

Does anyone who uses Oakland airport regularly know if their free Wi-Fi works properly? The last time I passed through OAK, I remember the supposedly free Wi-Fi did not work.

It seems to work ok for my occasional use. You have to agree to view an ad, etc.

That's my recollection. I remember being a little annoyed and turning off my wifi. LTE is not much slower for what I do with my mobile phone. No thanks on that ad, OAK.

Savvy airports and hotels are recognizing that anything more than a quick agreement to terms and conditions is likely to annoy their customers. Wifi is getting more and more like an ordinary electrical outlet.
