Wireless Internet

Available for Travelers

High-speed wireless Internet service is now available at Baltimore-Washington International Airport.

Through an alliance between WiSE Technology and HMS Host, which operates many food concessions at the airport, travelers with laptops will be able to surf the Web at CK's Lounge near Pier B, the Anheuser-Busch Beer Garden at Pier C and University Lounge at Pier D.

WiSE Technologies plans to extend the wireless capabilities to all five piers at BWI and to set up kiosks called WiSE Boxes at several other HMS Host operations to provide Internet access to travelers without computers.
