Connecting to WiFi at Pearson Airport was spotty at times, making it frustrating to get online before a flight.

But it’s almost 2019, and things are changing at Toronto’s airport.

According to the GTAA, one of Canada’s busiest airports is getting a special holiday surprise this year.

“After hearing their feedback requesting a faster WiFi connection, the GTAA is pleased to announce a 10X upgrade in Toronto Pearson WiFi capacity, letting you ‘connect’ with family just a little bit faster this holiday season,” said the GTAA in a release. “As part of ongoing IT transformation at Toronto Pearson, more upgrades will be announced in 2019.”

This holiday season, Toronto Pearson Airport estimates that 2.8 million passengers will travel through it, and on average, 127,000 passengers will fly through it daily from December 16, 2018 to January 6, 2019.

Holiday travel will peak on Friday, December 21, when over 135,000 passengers will arrive to or depart from Toronto Pearson, travelling to reach family, friends and sun destinations for the final weekend before Christmas.

And now, all those passengers will be able to get online at much faster speeds… to complain about flight delays.

Bon voyage!
