The average download speed of Wi-Fi in the nation's 40 busiest airports is a respectable 2.88 mbps. That figure is slightly misleading, however, as a small group of airports with very fast Wi-Fi significantly raised the average for the group. In truth, Wi-Fi service at most U.S. airports we visited was slower than 2 mbps, and at many it doesn’t even reach 1 mbps. We note that the fastest airport Wi-Fi is available in the southeastern region of the United States, and that three of the five fastest Wi-Fi services in the country are free.
