Those awaiting incoming passengers in Memphis International Airport's cell phone lot won't have to waste their precious data on games of Candy Crush anymore.
The airport's free Wi-Fi has now been expanded to include the cell phone lot — the parking area to the right of the main drive that leads to the terminal. That lot has also recently been upgraded with a display of flight arrival times, better lighting, and landscaping improvements.
Basic use of the Wi-Fi is free, but those who wish to use the airport's Wi-Fi to watch streaming video or upload large files must purchase a premium data package.
“We are committed to improving the customer experience here at MEM, and expanding free Wi-Fi to our cell phone lot gives our guests more options and better access to information,” said Scott Brockman, president and CEO of the Memphis-Shelby County Airport Authority.
