Wi-Fi is free at San Francisco International.  At Los Angeles International, only basic Wi-Fi is free; a speedy connection will cost you. Those are among the airports for which Airfarewatchdog’s new chart provides the Wi-Fi scoop.

Its Airport Wi-Fi Chart details the nitty gritty of Wi-Fi access for most major U.S. and international airports. 

The downloadable chart even details airports that give as much as 60 minutes of Wi-Fi for free. Oakland International and London Heathrow International both offer 45 minutes of free access, according to the chart from, the Smarter Travel-affiliated website that steers travelers toward airfare deals, provides info on baggage fees and more.

U.S. cities with airports offering free Wi-Fi include Anchorage, Boston, Dallas  (DFW), Denver, Las Vegas, New Orleans, Philadelphia, Phoenix, Portland, Sacramento, Salt Lake City, San Francisco, Seattle and Washington, D.C.

International cities with complimentary airport Wi-Fi include  Dubai, Dublin, Hong Kong, Moscow, Singapore, Sydney, Tokyo, Toronto, Vienna and Wellington.

If you want to save the chart to your phone or tablet, you may need an app to do it.  I had to use my Dropbox app to save the Wi-Fi chart to my iPhone.
