We know that not everyone has easy access to an internet connection when you're stuck waiting at the airport for your flight – some places even charge an arm and a leg for a connection. Fortunately Sprint is making it a bit easier for weary travelers that have to busy themselves at the JFK airport in New York by providing Wi-Fi access via Mi-Fi devices. They've set up the JFK Experience which is a fully branded lounge that many people may find reminiscent of an office with its mix of chairs, power outlets, workstations, and Mi-Fi units that seemingly provide anyone passing by a solid connection to the outside world. There is even a 13 foot curved wall that features the Sprint Now Network widget wall that provides some factoids about New York, a mobile hotspot demonstration video, and other highlights that focus on everything Sprint. Unfortunately it's not going to be a permanent stay for Sprint as it will be on-site for anyone to check out until December 2010. Although it's only one airport out of the many located across the country, it does exude an honorable gesture from the many grateful people waiting within its confines.
