Travelers Will Now Experience Free 500 Mbps Wi-Fi, a 100x Speed Boost
Rochester, N.Y., February 10, 2021 – Today, Greenlight Networks, the fastest fiber-to-the-home provider in New York State, announced a new advertising partnership with the Greater Rochester International Airport, which includes providing free, unthrottled, high-speed internet for travelers and infrastructure enhancements for airport employees and vendors. Greenlight Wi-Fi will give travelers upload and download speeds of up to 500 Mbps, 100 times faster than the previous 5 Mbps available. The partnership also includes an all-fiber backbone to power the airport’s day-to-day operations. These new services went into effect on February 4, 2021.
To access the new high-speed Wi-Fi, travelers just simply open a browser page on their device and they will be automatically redirected to the splash page. Travelers just accept the terms and be instantly connected to one of the fastest airport internet connections in the US.
“This partnership is about an investment in our community,” said Greenlight CEO Mark Murphy. “The reliability and speed of Greenlight’s world-class internet connection in the airport will showcase our service and will provide most users speeds better than what they may be receiving in their own homes. We are excited for everyone who travels through the airport to experience what Greenlight customers already know and love, the power of true high-speed internet.”
This significant jump in speed and technology will allow both business and leisure travelers to work, stream and stay connected when in the airport. Greenlight’s advanced upload and download speeds means travelers can do even more while waiting for their flight like video conferencing and streaming, without buffering or lag time.
As part of the agreement, Greenlight signage has been placed throughout the airport including entry/exit walkways to both concourses, feature walls behind each baggage claim area, the departure stairwell leading to baggage claim, table tents in the food court and rotating graphics on the airport’s 20 Flight Information Display screens (FIDS). Greenlight will also be participating in future airport events.
“After announcing a $46 million project in October which aims to add 93 new jobs and a new headquarters in Henrietta, Greenlight Networks continues to thrive in our community,” said County Executive Bello. “This new partnership not only boosts the presence of Greenlight in our region, but also provides the thousands of people who walk the terminals of our airport with access to one of the fastest airport internet connections in the U.S. I am excited to see the strides Greenlight will make in the future and thank them for their investments in Monroe County.”
“The Greater Rochester International Airport is one of the main gateways for visitors into our community. The new partnership between Greenlight Networks and the airport will certainly deliver a positive impression of both the airport and the community for visitors to our city,” said Don Jeffries, President & CEO, Visit Rochester. “The high-speed capabilities of the Greenlight Network will appeal to visitors, providing them with the technology they need to start their visit to Rochester off on the right foot.”
