Airport now has Wi-Fi, sort of

PYONGYANG, North Korea (AP) — North Korea is one of the least Wi-Fi-friendly countries in the world. But in a sign that might be changing, the country’s main internet provider appears to have put up a Wi-Fi trial balloon at the international departure area of Pyongyang’s airport.

The Associated Press gave it a try, with mixed results. It has some considerable bugs. Like allowing people to log on. But it might just be a legitimate test run.

None of this came as a particular shock. Airport Wi-Fi can be more aspirational than functional in a lot of places.

Maybe some kinks need to be worked out. Contrary to popular belief, not everything in North Korea is fake.
