We’re wired!

Yours truly jamming to the latest tunes at I-Tech, located post-security, Terminal 2 East, at San Diego International Airport.

Once upon a time, San Diego was just a sleepy surf town with military bases, overshadowed by the entertainment metropolis of Los Angeles to the north.  But San Diego has long since matured to earn its own “place in the sun” as a destination in its own right.

Today, San Diego’s economy is bolstered by a host of high-tech industries such as bioscience, telecommunications, software development and electronics manufacturing.  And so much of that economy is fueled by the ‘skyway port‘ in America’s Finest City, San Diego International Airport.

Appropriately enough, SDIA is on the cutting edge when it comes to being wired for the tech-savvy set.  Two years ago, SDIA was among the first large airports to offer free wi-fi service available to all “cyber-flyers.”  In 2009, Forbes magazine ranked San Diego number 12 overall among the nation’s Most Wired Cities — but number two for households with high-speed Internet connections.  So locals and visitors alike don’t have to forgo broadband while at the airport, either.

And while passengers are checking their e-mail or enjoying Web sites (like this one) at SDIA, they can sit in comfort while enjoying at-seat plug-ins and even cup holders at some gates.  And, should a traveler need some gizmos and gadgets to enhance their electronic experience, SDIA even has an I-Tech Wireless retail shop to serve post-security passengers in Terminal 2 East.

So, from many angles, San Diego’s stature as a wired hot-spot is on display at SDIA. Stay tuned, as always, to the Ambassablog for the latest and greatest on wired airport innovations in the making!
