Boston airport tries to kill free Wi-Fi node

How lame is this?? Like the pay for service doesn’t use the same frequency and thereby has the same “unacceptable potential risk”??

Boston’s Logan International Airport is attempting to pull the plug on Continental Airlines’ free Wi-Fi node, which competes with the airport’s $7.95-a-day pay service.

In an escalating series of threatening letters sent over the last few weeks, airport officials have pledged to “take all necessary steps to have the (Wi-Fi) antenna removed” from Continental’s frequent flyer lounge. Continental’s free service poses an “unacceptable potential risk” to communications gear used by the state police and the Transportation Security Administration, the letters claim.
