Nice Côte d’Azur Airport will this month offer free and unlimited 100 meg broadband Wi-Fi to passengers, crew and staff at Nice and Cannes Mandelieu Airports.
From 13 March Nice Côte d’Azur Airport will increase its Internet access speed sevenfold, via two operators, and almost double the number of terminals connected to Wi-Fi broadband.
All passengers, crew and staff at Nice and Cannes Mandelieu will be able to use 100 meg WIFI broadband – free and unlimited, a first in French airports!
The network optimisation will cover the entire facility, including runways, terminals and car parks. It will allow 5,000 people at Nice Airport airport alone to simultaneously connect to Wi-Fi that is fast, free and unlimited.
A simplified makeover of the WIFI access portal, offering better visibility of Internet access for passengers, is also under way.
Nice Côte d’Azur Airport claims to have been in the vanguard of Wi-Fi provision, becoming the first French airport to implement a Wi-Fi Hotspot, in 2000. In 2008, it was again the first French airport to offer passengers a free and unlimited Wi-Fi connection.
