MSP Airport Expands WiFi

MINNEAPOLIS and ST. PAUL, Minn. -- Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport's Humphrey Terminal now offers wireless Internet service to travelers, through an agreement between the Metropolitan Airports Commission and wireless service provider Concourse Communications Group.

The service was first introduced in phases at MSP's Lindbergh Terminal, beginning in March 2002. Wireless technology in the Lindbergh Terminal was expanded earlier this year to regional concourses A and B and the newest gates on Concourse C. Wireless service now is available at all Lindbergh Terminal gates, the Northstar Crossing concession area, airline lounges and the Grieve Conference Center.

"Expansion of service means travelers have access to wireless Internet technology in gate and concession areas regardless of which terminal they use," said Vicki Tigwell, chair of the Metropolitan Airports Commission. "Whether you want to finalize a business presentation or e-mail clients, all you need is a wireless-equipped laptop, and you're in business."

Free-standing Internet stations provided by InGate Technologies are available in most Lindbergh Terminal concourses for travelers not carrying laptops.

"In a recent article on MSNBC.com, MSP was rated as one of the 10 best airports in the U.S. for business travelers," said Joe Beatty, CEO of Concourse Communications. "Extending WiFi coverage to include all terminals and concourses assures they will continue to be in that elite group for the foreseeable future."
