Continental Offering Free WiFi

Well, the one place that seemed the most likely to be able to keep charging for WiFi, airports (due to their captive audience) seems to be going towards free as well. It’s possible that this has been helped along by the fact that airports and airlines are starting to compete with each other to offer WiFi, but now Continental Airlines has announced plans to offer free WiFi to travelers. Admittedly, they say it’s only available in their premium club areas, but as people have discovered with American Airline’s similar offering, if you just sit close enough to that room, you should have plenty of WiFi available.
