Nashville airport to offer limited free wi-fi, charging stations

By G. Chambers Williams III • THE TENNESSEAN • September 29, 2010 Nashville International Airport said today that it plans to add limited free wireless Internet service and 14 complimentary charging stations for portable electronic devices in its terminals. The Metropolitan Nashville Airport Authority board approved the additions during its September meeting, modifying a 2004 concession agreement with CCG/Boingo. Travelers will be able to connect to the wireless system free for up to 20 minutes in the food courts, meter/greeter waiting areas and some restaurants, and members of the airport’s frequent-parker program will have 15 minutes of compemetary Wi-Fi access anywhere in the terminals, the airport said. For those who need longer periods of service, Boingo is available for $7.95 a day or $9.95 a month for unlimited access. The monthly subscription can be used at more than 30,000 wi-fi hotspots in North America, including those in many airports and hotels. At least two of the new charging stations will be in place by the end of the year, the airport said.
