AUSTIN-Seattle-Tacoma International Airport is now the third airport in the US to offer travelers wireless Internet access from Wayport Inc., an Austin-based IT company.

Wayport also provides wireless Internet access at Austin-Bergstrom International and Dallas/Fort Worth International airports. Travelers using Wayport’s Portable Internet Access service can access the Internet in the airport and connect with company networks, email and the Web using their laptop PC and wireless network card.

The company had launched the Seattle airport service mid-week with promotional offers and demonstrations. The event had been sponsored by Xircom, Cisco and Toshiba.
