Whether you travel for work or pleasure, there’s one constant outside of cutting your mouth on the sharp ice cubes they serve you in flight – the awfulness of airport WiFi. I don’t care if you’re in Amsterdam or Chicago O’Hare, at some point you’re going to attempt to log in to some Boingo HotSpot, get pissed off, and shut your laptop in anger before heading to the nearest Newsbeat to buy a magazine that you could’ve otherwise read for free had the WiFi just worked in the first place.
But now, we have in our possession the holy grail of travel: free WiFi passwords for dozens of airports worldwide as given to us by travel blogger Anil Polat. He’s also a computer security engineer which is how he’s locked all of these down, and he regularly updates the map when he finds that an airport changes their login information.
As Anil’s travel blog states, the entire purpose of his work is to help people “travel smarter.” And if “travel smarter” means you can stream a baseball game from Gate 49 rather than paying $12 for a Sam Adams, I’m all for it. .
