“We let people test airports’ WiFi and share their data on social media to encourage or warn others about a particular airport,” comments Arturas Jonkus, the co-founder of Lithuanian WiFi speed test app Rotten WiFi.
The site already features a blunt take on world’s most rotten and most amazing airport WiFi:
The more testers take part, the more accurate and reliable Top 20 will come out of it by the end of December. The campaign aims to celebrate the best airports and publicly shun the worst ones, creating social pressure to improve.
We encourage all airports to test their WiFi within our campaign. Especially if a venue has recently invested in upgrading internet connectivity.
Participation of regular passengers in addition to airport staff is crucial to gather reliable data. Because passenger tests are spontaneous, no airport can prepare for them. This makes sure that test results reflect the actual situation at the venue.
