Wireless Internet access appears poised to take off at Logan
International Airport after federal regulators this week thwarted a
two-year effort by airport officials to shut off private alternatives
to airport-controlled $8-a-day WiFi service.

American Airlines , the biggest carrier at Logan by passenger volume,
will "move as fast as we can" to resume offering WiFi at its Admirals
Club lounge in Terminal B, an American spokesman, Ned Raynolds, said
yesterday . Service was being offered there by T-Mobile USA before the
Massachusetts Port Authority , which runs Logan, ordered it shut
off. T-Mobile, which American would most likely use, charges $6 for an
hour, or $30 for a monthly subscription that offers access at
thousands of sites nationwide.

JetBlue Airways said it will look into offering free WiFi to
passengers in Terminal C. JetBlue currently offers free WiFi at John
F. Kennedy International Airport in New York and the Long Beach,
Calif., airport.
