No strings: Irish airports offering Wi-Fi access


DUBLIN -- Irish airports authority Aer Rianta began offering wireless Internet access at Dublin, Shannon and Cork airports.

Wireless connectivity, available in departure lounges and other airport "congregation points," will be provided free through June 30, to coincide with Ireland's six-month-long European Union presidency.

Areas where wireless Internet access is provided are known as "Wi-Fi hotspots" and are indicated by airport signage; promotional materials advise consumers on how to access and use the service.

Aer Rianta plans to have fee-based wireless Internet facilities available for hire at Dublin Airport before the end of June, followed by subsequent availability at Shannon and Cork.
