    In Amsterdam they give you an hour free then you have to pay, you would think with airport tax they could afford to give you free wifi.

    I've actually only used it once, in Amsterdam during a 15 hour over night layover (won't be doing that again) when I actually had my laptop.

    They make enough business in an airport without charging for something which is free in very other public place.

    The point is not how much business they already have, but the "eternal growth"...it will be the death of capitalism one, just obody knwos when or what to put against it (Some models already failed, and some weher destroyed)

    There is no technical reason why they couldn't offer WiFi for longer periods. I suppose they figured that most people are passing through the airport, not staying longer than an hour.

    If so, they don't know modern airports very well, eh.

    In my local bar you can get free WiFi.
    It says so on the bar menu and the food menu.
    The password is also written on there for all to use.

    Limeys passing through Schiphol are generally drunk enough already.
