When free wifi means 20 minutes and then you pay

26 10 2014

GRR has free wifi via Boingo (?), as does ORD. But free wifi at ORD cuts out after 20 minutes! 10 minutes of that I was on a call. So I’m now tethering via my phone. ORD advertises throughout the terminal and over the announcement system that they have ‘free’ wifi… Yeah, just for 20 mins. Clearing the browser cache and history doesn’t make any difference – tried that.

Who arrives at their gate only 20 minutes before the flight these days?
