Heathrow airport has launched a super-fast wifi access in partnership with Boingo.

The free service is an update to the carrier’s existing wifi provision, and offers travellers connection speeds of up to 100 Mbps.

Existing members of the Heathrow Rewards loyalty programme will also earn 100 points by signing into the new wifi with their Rewards account.

Heathrow says that “The new service uses Passpoint technology to deliver a next generation, secure wifi experience and will enable travellers to seamlessly roam between wifi and cellular for a better-connected experience”.

The airport added that investment has been made to upgrade its wireless network and ensure bandwidth capacity, and two new Boingo high-speed internet links have been installed.

Commenting on the news John Arbuckle, Head of Property at Heathrow said:

“Whether passengers are streaming, browsing or working on the go, we’re excited to improve their connectivity experience with the latest generation of Boingo’s award-winning wifi.

“This is just one of many initiatives that Heathrow has invested in to serve and delight our 80 million passengers, making Heathrow a world-class airport”.
