You made it through airport security, now you want to make it onto the internet. A new Speedtest analysis by Seattle-based Ookla will tell you where to jet off to if you’re looking for the fastest WiFi in the U.S. and Canada.
The annual survey, which last year ranked Seattle-Tacoma International Airport as the spot with the quickest free Wi-Fi in North America, has a new leader among 51 of the largest airports. In its first year on the list, Honolulu’s Daniel K. Inouye International Airport made an impressive debut at No. 1 with a mean download speed of 145.12 Mbps. That speed was 37.5 percent faster than another newcomer, No. 2 Chicago Midway.
Sea-Tac dropped to third with a mean download speed that fell 4.4 percent since 2018, according to Speedtest.
Nashville International and Phoenix Sky Harbor rounded out the top five. The airport with the slowest Wi-Fi was Louis Armstrong New Orleans International Airport.
When it comes to the perks inside airline lounges, the Alaska Lounge from Alaska Airlines rewarded members at Sea-Tac with the fastest download speed at 102.26 Mbps.
