Where can travelers find the best free WiFi in North American airports? Apparently, the Pacific Northwest has this category on lock.
A new ranking of North American airports by software firm Ookla LLC shows Seattle’s Sea-Tac (SEA) has the fastest airport WiFi. It unseats last year’s winner, Denver (DEN).
Sea-Tac’s WiFi also beat out other global winners from previous years, like Gold Coast Airport in Australia; Congonhas-Sao Paulo Airport in Brazil; Dubai International; Seoul Incheon Airport in South Korea; Sheremetyevo International Airport in Russia; and Mohammed V International Airport in Morocco.
Denver had the top spot for the previous two years, but is now in second place. The other top spots went to Calgary International Airport, Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport, San Francisco International Airport, Philadelphia International Airport, Vancouver International Airport, Logan International Airport, Orlando International Airport and LaGuardia Airport.
“We can’t help you with the long security lines, but we can give you a heads up on whether the WiFi’s fast enough to keep you entertained or if you’re better off wandering in search of the best coffee on each concourse,” states the report, based on speed tests that conducted from January–April of this year on free WiFi at each airport.
Welcome to Rhodes, a medieval treasure beautifully preserved throughout the centuries. Rhodes is the capital of the Dodecanese, an island ideal not only for those who want to relax, but also for those looking for an action-packed holiday! With its bright green hills, rich green valleys and uninterrupted line of golden beaches, Rhodes is truly a blessed place. “The sun island” has more sunshiny days and milder temperatures throughout the year than any other location in Greece. It is, after all, one of the country’s easternmost places and among the first to welcome summer on its impressive beaches. Add in the excellent facilities for tourism, the island’s special blend of cosmopolitan and traditional, and numerous cultural and archaeological sites, the most important being the Medieval (Old) Town, a UNESCO World Heritage site, and you’ve got the perfect holiday destination. While on Rhodes, don’t miss a daytrip to nearby Sými. An island of sponge divers and seamen, Sými used to have 30,000 inhabitants before the Second World War and was the richest island in the Dodecanese, despite its small size. Today, Sými attracts many visitors thanks to its beautifully preserved Neo-Classical buildings and the famous Archangel Michael monastery at Panormitis.
