Super-fast wi-fi for Heathrow

In an addition to its present service, Heathrow has launched free super-fast wi-fi access across all terminals in partnership with US technology specialist Boingo, offering travellers connection speeds of up to 100 Mbps.

The new system uses Passpoint technology to deliver what the airport calls “a next-generation, secure wi-fi experience” that will enable users to “roam seamlessly between wi-fi and cellular for a better-connected experience”.

The airport added the new installation included investment to upgrade its wireless network and ensure bandwidth capacity, and two new Boingo high-speed internet links had been installed.

Head of property John Arbuckle said: “Whether passengers are streaming, browsing or working on the go, we’re excited to improve their connectivity experience with the latest generation of Boingo’s award-winning wi-fi.

“This is just one of many initiatives that Heathrow has invested in to serve and delight our 80m passengers to continue making this a world-class airport”.

Boingo chief marketing officer Dawn Callahan added: “Passpoint is a wi-fi game-changer that facilitates a seamless, secure and fast connected experience and we’re proud to introduce the technology at the busiest airport in Europe.”

Members of the Heathrow Rewards loyalty programme can earn 100 points by signing into the new wi-fi with their Rewards account.
