MINNEAPOLIS - A new service has landed at the Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport. Travelers now have access to complimentary wireless internet service.

"Free WiFi has topped the wish lists of travelers at Minneapolis-St.Paul International Airport for some time," says Jeff Hamiel, chief executive officer/executive director of the Metropolitan Airports Commission.

Travelers just have select "MSP-WiFi" from their network choices to access the service on their laptop, tablet or Smartphone. They will have to watch a short advertisement or take a brief survey to gain access to 45 minutes of wireless internet service. Once the session ends, travelers will have to repeat the process.

For people who want uninterrupted, commercial free service or a greater bandwidth, they can pay $2.95 for 24-hour use.

MAC awarded the WiFi contract to Advanced Wireless Group in mid-July. The service started October first.

MSP is already working on upgrading the system, because they expect demand for the free WiFi to grow exponentially.
