DUBAI: It’s now official: Dubai International Airport has the fastest internet connection among major passenger terminals around the world.
Speedtest, which measures internet performance, has just released the results of its study using data for March to May 2017. It looked at speeds of free airport Wi-Fi and local cellular signals at the busiest airline hubs.

Speedtest said that holidaymakers and business travellers jetting off to Dubai – or simply passing through- will find that, with the free Wi-Fi, they can send emails, post on Facebook, Instagram or Twitter faster than they can load web pages or stream videos.
