Travelers using Honolulu's Daniel K. Inouye International Airport can now take advantage of free WiFi service introduced at the end of December.

The free WiFi is provided by Boingo Wireless, and the coverage area is currently limited to the overseas terminal and central concourse on the first and second levels between ticket lobbies 4-8, gates 12-25 and baggage claims E-H, according to a statement from the Hawaii Department of Transportation.

Boingo is working on adding WiFi coverage to the Diamond Head Concourse, Ewa Concourse and Interisland Terminal in the coming months, with full, airport-wide coverage anticipated for early spring 2018, according to HDOT.

Customers can choose between two options, unlimited free WiFi sponsored by advertisers or they can purchase one-day or monthly Boingo subscriptions that offer faster speeds.

The company is also installing a distributed antenna system network, which should boost cellular connectivity at the airport.

Additionally, the state is working with Boingo on expanding free WiFi to neighbor island airports, including Kahului Airport, Maui; Hilo International Airport and Ellison Onizuka Kona International Airport at Keahole, both on Hawaii Island; and Lihue Airport, Kauai.
