Free Wi-Fi Too Good to be True


Yes, we have free access to Wi-Fi in the downtown core, but the same access-to-the-masses mentality does not exist at the airport. This is the pop up that appears when you open your web browser within range of the Bell Wi-Fi system at Pearson International Airport. It's their choice of words that pisses me off.

Your salt-in-the-wounds options? $9.99 for the day (even though you likely only need 10 minutes to check your email) or $15.99 for the week (so you save $4.00 when you check your email when you return?). Highway Airway robbery. The nerve! End rant.
