North American airports have the fastest airport Wi-Fi

  • Published by Ozgur Tore

Free airport Wi-Fi is clearly an expectation travelers have at North American airports and many airports are rising to the challenge. Denver International Airport (DEN) has once again been awarded the title of ‘the fastest Wi-Fi among the world’s top airports’ according to a study conducted by Ookla.

Using Speedtest data from March-May 2017, Ookla finds out that downloads at Denver’s airport are 27% faster than the last time they crunched the numbers. Second fastest in North America as well as in the world is Vancouver International Airport.

DEN offers free Wi-Fi with an average download speed of 78.22 Mbps, topping the list of more than 50 major airports tested across North America, Europe, Asia and Africa.

Free airport Wi-Fi at international airports in Philadelphia, San Francisco, Seattle-Tacoma and Calgary are faster than any free airport Wi-Fi they have tested across Europe, Asia, and Africa. Though mostly slower than the average mobile Wi-Fi download speed in the U.S. (57.31 Mbps) and Canada (51.17 Mbps), travelers at these airports should have no complaints about Wi-Fi speeds.

Wi-Fi download speeds at airports in Boston, Dallas-Fort Worth and Mexico City are about as fast as those in Moscow or Seoul. Miami’s speed is similar to that in Delhi. Meanwhile the speeds in Toronto, Atlanta and Montréal were slower than any Wi-Fi they saw in Africa, though comparable to many airports in China. The Wi-Fi at Benito Juárez is 87% faster than Mexico’s country average for mobile Wi-Fi of 14.81 Mbps.
