Wireless Internet access is now available throughout Seattle-Tacoma International Airport, thanks to Austin, Texas based Wayport Inc., the high-speed portable Internet service provider for airports and hotels.
The airport`s new wireless Internet service provides mobile professionals with increased productivity while on the road and eliminates the inconvenience of being out of touch with family and the office. Wayport enables travellers to access the Internet from anywhere in the airport, including gate areas, without connecting to a telephone. The company already provides service at Austin-Bergstrom International and Dallas/Fort Worth International airports, making Seattle-Tacoma International only the third airport in the United States to offer wireless connectivity.
Using Wayport`s wireless service simply requires a PC and an 802.11b Ethernet card. By clicking on their normal Internet browser, Sea-Tac passengers automatically access Wayport`s sign-on Web page. Through a simple connection process, users can send and receive email, surf the Web and access corporate networks at T1 speeds up to 50 to 200 times faster than standard modem or cellular connections.
In addition to Wayport`s expanding footprint in airports, the company also provides wireless and wired Internet services for hotels, making Internet connection seamless for travellers. The company currently holds agreements with premiere hotel companies such as Four Seasons, Wyndham, and Sonesta Hotels and Resorts
