Airport representatives say that these new charging hubs will give passengers somewhere to charge their electronic devices in virtually every public seating area in the airport, with power outlets spread across all three concourses. The airport spent a further $2.5 million improving their free public WiFi service, which is now said to be the fastest among any large U.S. airport.
