Speedtest maker Ookla has published the results of its annual survey of the fastest airport wi-fi in the USA and Canada, covering twice as many airports as before.

Honolulu’s Daniel K Inouye International Airport made its debut on the list this year, at the very top of the rankings. With a mean download speed of 145.12Mbps, Honolulu’s wi-fi was 37.5% faster than second-place Chicago Midway (which was also new to the list). These two airports unseated Seattle-Tacoma International Airport, last year’s winner for fastest airport wi-fi. Ranking third, Seattle-Tacoma’s mean download speed over wi-fi actually fell 4.4% since last year’s analysis. Nashville International and Phoenix Sky Harbor rounded out the top five.

Calgary was placed 17th overall, but showed the fastest airport wi-fi of the five Canadian airports examined. Montréal-Trudeau International Airport had the slowest wi-fi among Canadian airports again this year, but its mean download speed jumped 154.4% since the last analysis.

Of the 51 airports surveyed by Ookla, Louis Armstrong New Orleans International Airport had the slowest wi-fi, followed by Salt Lake City International Airport, Houston’s William P Hobby Airport, Southwest Florida International Airport in Fort Meyers, and Norman Y Mineta San José International Airport.

Ookla’s data was based on Speedtest Intelligence data from 51 of the largest airports in the USA and Canada during the first half of 2019. The full analysis can be seen here.
