Airports with free internet [Master thread]

I was passing through the CVG-Cincinnati terminal C this weekend and noticed free internet in all four corners. There was a counter with five positions to Connect and Recharge your laptops with wired internet ports. Had I realized it was available I might have lugged my computer along with me since I had a few hours to kill there. I also remembered passing through an Asian airport, SIN or HKG, that had free kiosks.

This inspired me to start a thread of airports with free internet for us lowly folks that do not have access to airline clubs on a regular basis. I will try to keep this up to date, somewhat like the where we all come from thread. I will look at peopleís posts along the way and add them to a list at the top.

I am only looking for free access for the lowly folks, not the paid hotspots or kiosks. It can be wired or wireless. Iíll steal the information that I see from a 2000 thread in TravelBuzz and one from a couple of months ago in Travel Tech. If this works I will keep it up, if no one is interested Iíll let it drop away.

Please post in this format:

Airport------------Location-----Type---------------------Quantity of stations----As of:
CVG-Cincinnati----Terminal C----Wired laptop locations----4 Sets of 5-------------Aug 05

Cheers, MCRT

Thanks to slippahs for providing me with the link http://www.wififreespot.com/airport.html This one is great if you have your wi-fi laptop with you.

Mods, I am posting this in TravelBuzz to start, if you feel it is better in Travel Tech feel free to move it.

LAS - free wireless access throughout all terminals.
**just requires "your" email for access... so give a "real" address

VIE has free wireless throughout. It is still marked as a trial, but for a trial, it's been going on for the last 3 years...

Seconded for SIN (though T2 has much faster access speeds). Approx 20 computers in T2 alone, with extra desks for those with laptops.

SYD, Departures & Arrival Halls (Landside), wired PC stations, 6 PCs in each hall, approx 12 months.
