Working On-The-Go: Which Airports Have the Best Free WiFi?
If you work remotely or travel a lot as part of your job, you’re probably able to look at your itinerary and know offhand which of your connections are going to allow you the most productivity.
Is the first thing you do when you step off your flight to log onto the airport’s free WiFi? Do you log into a VPN server while using airport WiFi to ensure sensitive data you exchange is protected, making a steady connection all the more important?
If so, your input is needed! Where can remote workers expect the best experiences?
Here’s a list of international airport locations based on firsthand experience from recent travels or feedback from friends and colleagues like Laura Duran, an industrial logistics manager that’s traveled extensively for work; and Misty Browne, expat and writer.

Rumor has it that Amsterdam’s an amazing city with amazing WiFi, could be a decent place to get some work done remotely.
Awful WiFi. Lots of interruptions in the connection whether you’re walking around or are relatively still. When asked about the problems with the connection, a Delta employee standing in one of the hallways asked, “There is no free Wi-Fi.” Enough said.
The good WiFi service in the airport may be one of the many things that set Barcelona apart from the rest of the country.
Average free WiFi. There’s some dropout in hallways and restaurants but that’s normal. The quality of internet calls over this connection was atrocious.
You can only get free WiFi if you have an Egyptian phone number where a login code can be texted to you, but if you have no phone service, you’re not getting online. And chances are, if you have an Egyptian phone number, you don’t need free WiFi. Not very helpful, Cairo.
Dallas/Fort Worth, USA
Word on the street is there’s good free WiFi in this dual-city airport.
Average quality free WiFi, nothing to write home about in terms of speed or connection.
Good quality WiFi, not a surprise taking into consideration German standards.
Jeddah, Saudia Arabia
Poor WiFi. Don’t expect to go crazy online in the KSA airport.
Mixed reviews on the WiFi in this airport with the most recent experience being better than first; so not sure how reliable it is here.
Good free Wi-Fi every time. You can get online easily and only drop off in while going through security, which is to be expected and not the best place to work, anyway.
This airport rocks and so does it’s WiFi. They even have lounge chairs where you can recline and work, and you’ll barely lose connection if at all.
If you’re an international traveler, you’re not getting online for free in this airport. There is free WiFi which you can sign up for and log into with a code that’ll be texted to your phone, but if you don’t have a Tunisian phone number the code may never arrive. If you’re able to get a code, you’ll find the service is poor.
Only the first 15 minutes of WiFi are free, which is almost the same as there not being any free WiFi at all. Come on Austria, you can do better.
Great free wi-fi, the only issue reported was with chatting on messengers apps, but after being redirected to a web page to agree to terms and conditions, everything was fine!
