Posted By and on Sun, Jun 20, 2010 at 3:31 PM

The San Jose Mercury News is reporting that San Francisco International Airport will offer free WiFi come September 1, joining other Bay Area airports Mineta San Jose International and Oakland International, which offered the free service as a way of attracting passengers.

SFO spokesman Mike McCarron revealed the decision was in response to customer demand. "In our passenger surveys, that was the one issue that came up over and over: They wanted free WiFi," he said. Part of an ongoing trend to make high-trafficked environments more connectivity friendly, the airport will be dropping its fee-based TMobile service as a convenience for wired passengers.

Web-savvy and thrifty air travelers rejoice! You've got one more reason to pat yourself on the back for buying the WiFi iPad.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
