Logan trying to force airlines to use paid WiFi

Logan Airport still doesn’t get it.

The Massachusetts Port Authority, which runs the airport, claims that there are security concerns, and that airline-run WiFi networks could interfere with the operation of secure networks.

Security? HELLO? This is a unlicensed band, you numbskulls. The airlines can run whatever they want as long as it abides by FCC Part-15. You want secure, quit using WiFi. If there are a hack attempts, then the airlines are responsible. This also falls under the court order on landlords cannot force WiFi onto their tenants. Why are there always morons running “Authority” type areas?

    Isn’t the real reason that one airline is running free wifi for passengers and the airport wants to charge for it?

  • Yeah. Which is fine, but you can’t force your tenants to get on your “paid” network by citing security concerns. That’s just a load of phooey.
