Say you are in Dulles Airport’s Gate D, and you’re like me, a WiFi addict. If you whip out your laptop and fire it up looking for free WiFi, you’ll be kinda in luck.
Unlike the lack of WiFi at National Airport, in Dulles Gate D you can use BT Online. Or well part of it anyway. You’ll not be able to surf the Internet using a web browser, or use Skype to call home, but you can use Yahoo Instant Messenger.
Yes, thet’s right, BT Online changes for the use of the ports that allow browsers and Skype to work, but Yahoo IM is free for all. Me, I used to exclaim the shock of this error to my geek friends.
What will you use it for?
