Traveling can be a stressful and tiresome. Travelers in transit between flights know how tedious it can be to wait long hours in the airport terminal before departing on their connecting flight. This especially is made more aggravating if the airport WIFI is slow or altogether idle, making it difficult for travelers to connect with their friends and family, and barring business travelers from working during their wait time. Despairing travelers making their way through Dubai International Airport need not to fret, as DXB has been declared top in airport WIFI speed. “I have always believed in enhancingcommunication between people inDubai... Our goal today is to strengthenthis communication by enabling the use

of the Internet without barriers.” Said His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum. Other initiatives such as WIFI UAE have been administered throughout Dubai to help keep residents and visitors connected.

A study conducted by Speedtest has determined that Dubai International Airport ranks at the top of the list for fastest internet connection globally among passenger terminals. The study analyzed data that was collected by Speedtest from March to May 2017. Collected information included airport WIFI speeds provided free of cost and local cellular signals at the airports that have the highest numbers of footfall and transiting passengers.

“Dubai reigns when it comes to free airport Wi-Fi. In fact, this airport has the fastest Wi-Fi we’ve seen at any airport in Asia, Europe or Africa,” a representative from Speedtest said. “Their average upload speed is even faster than their download.”

“UAE has clearly prioritised airport Wi-Fi because the Wi-Fi download speed at Dubai International is nearly double the country’s average of 22.12 Mbps,” Speedtest added.

Runners up include Incheon International Airport in Seoul with the second fastest WIFI speed. Other contenders topping the list included; Tokyo Haneda Airport, Indira Gandhi International Airport in India and Singapore Changi Airport.
