SBC unwires Palm Springs Airport: This is a goofy, giddy press release complete with a female CEO declaring herself First Lady of Wi-Fi for the Palm Springs International Airport. Does that mean she needs to wear a strapless dress with a sash to the unveiling? Go figure.
The release notes SBC's other exciting airports, which are a hilarious little list: Bob Hope International Airport in Burbank, CA, Evansville-Vanderburgh Airport in Evansville, IN, Cleveland International Airport, Little Rock National Airport and Northwest Arkansas Regional Airport.
I'm not trying to dis Cleveland, Burbank, or Evansville, and I had family in Arkansas at one time so I'd better be careful there, but these are fairly small airports that have significant but not massive volumes of passengers. It shows that SBC is trying to fill in gaps where other providers haven't leapt, which revealing of their overall strategy. Their partner Wayport has a number of large airports, like Seattle-Tacoma, San Jose, Oakland, and Dallas.
