    Free Wi-Fi begins at Toronto Pearson Airport

    The Greater Toronto Airports Authority today announced free Wi-Fi service started at Toronto Pearson International Airport on Sunday.

    In a move that other airports made long ago, including Vancouver, the GTAA today said folks no longer will have to pay to check their email or surf the web at Canada’s biggest airport.

    “Our guests have told us that being able to stay connected while at the airport is important to them and that they expect this service to be complimentary,” said Pamela Griffith-Jones, chief marketing and commercial officer for the GTAA. “We are delighted that we were able to make this possible, while maintaining our focus on reducing costs and improving value for money for our airlines and passengers.”

    GTAA spokesman Scott Armstrong told the Star in an email that they’ve received “good feedback from passengers so far.” He also said free wi-fi was “one of the things that our passengers told us they expected through our research panel, www.yourvoiceatpearson.com.

    “Offering free Wi-Fi services to Toronto Pearson’s guests is an important element in the GTAA’s commitment to serving the needs of its customers and helping to ensure an enjoyable travel experience,” the GTAA’s press release stated. “This free service is made possible through a marketing sponsorship agreement between the GTAA and Rogers Communications.”

    This doesn't bother me too much because 3G is usually faster anyway. I guess it's best for int'l travelers.
