The Spanish company Aena, which manages the country’s public airports, has revamped its free Wi-Fi service to enable high-speed downloading and HD streaming.

el prat 29 december 2017The new network, whose bandwidth has not been unveiled, will be deployed across 46 airports within the coming weeks.

According to Aena, the service will be completely free, with the pay option being cancelled, and will have no advertising. Travellers will be able to use it after they register on the Aena website.

The previous service, which has been available for the last two years, had a premium subscription that enabled speeds up to 10Mbps, depending on the airport. The free option delivered no more than 2Mpbs, making it impossible to use any video streaming or over-the-top (OTT) services.

“The new Wi-Fi network, of which Aena is provider, offers greater bandwidth enabling HD multimedia content consumption like any regular broadband service,” said the public company.
