The Hawai`i Department of Transportation has announced the availability of free unlimited Wi-Fi throughout the Daniel K. Inouye International Airport.
DOT officials say that Wi-Fi and DAS networks will be added to additional airports in Hawai`i including Kahului Airport (OGG), Hilo International Airport (ITO), Ellison Onizuka Kona International Airport at Keahole (KOA) and Lihue Airport (LIH) in 2018.
The Wi-Fi at Daniel K. Inouye International Airport is available through Boingo Wireless (Nasdaq: WIFI) which operates wireless networks in major airports, stadiums, campuses, military bases and commercial properties throughout the country and world.
The high-density Wi-Fi network is built to meet large scale mobile demands. Since the Wi-Fi launched in December 2017, there have been more than 1.5 million connects to the network, with usage growing month over month. Passengers are also enjoying connectivity through Passpoint, a Next Generation Hotspot (NGH) technology that automatically connects travelers to HNL’s Wi-Fi with no log-ins or passwords required.
“We will continue to explore public-private partnerships to make amenities, such as free Wi-Fi, available to those traveling to and from Hawaii,” said Governor David Y. Ige. “These improvements will continue to transform our busiest airport into a distinctive, efficient airport and will enhance the experience of our residents and tourists when they travel to and from our islands.”
In addition to Wi-Fi, passengers will soon benefit from HNL’s Distributed Antenna System (DAS), a wireless solution that improves cellular connectivity. The cellular DAS network will boost signal strength and increase capacity to improve mobile coverage for travelers, regardless of which wireless carrier they use.
“The converged wireless network Boingo built at HNL is designed to deliver a seamless connected experience for passengers across Wi-Fi and cellular services,” said David Hagan, CEO, Boingo. “By deploying this next generation wireless technology, travelers can enjoy fast and free connectivity to stream, surf and share. We congratulate HDOT on this new HNL milestone and look forward to launching Boingo networks at additional airports in Hawaii this year.”
