When it comes to innovation, we can always count on industry-leading countries such as Dubai. This week, the country has claimed the honor of launching the fastest Wi-Fi connection in the whole word, featuring it in Dubai International (DXB).

Internet speed could get as fast as 100 mbps, an amazing feat no other airports have reached yet. All travelers passing through Dubai airports can avail this service -- called WOW-Fi -- for as long as they want. This announcement was a follow-up to Dubai Airport's free unlimited high-speed Wi-Fi connection last December.

A definite perk to guests traveling to Dubai, passengers will be able to while away their time in the airport without having to go through the usual difficult process of logging in an airport server's Wi-Fi connection, with other follow-up details to be filled up before they can avail a few hours' worth of internet service. With WOW-Fi, guests can access this high-speed Wi-Fi service with just one click.

Dubai Airports are expecting to welcome 89 million passengers this year. To keep up with their promise, 6,000 new Wi-Fi access points are invested to have a significant upgrade to the wireless network infrastructure across both airports, according to Business Wire. Other impressive innovations such as the enhancing of internet links to 5GBPS each to provide the required bandwidth and resilience also took place.

"As the biggest international airport in the world, we are at the heart of many journeys across the globe," said Michael Ibbitson, Executive Vice President of Technology and Infrastructure at Dubai Airports.

"To support these travelers, late last year we launched unlimited free high-speed Wi-Fi across our airports but our goal was to offer something they have never experienced at an airport before. With WOW-Fi passengers will get a speed of up to 100mbps to enable them to quickly download or upload emails, pictures, videos and social media updates and then get on with enjoying the airport or connecting to their friends and family across the world."
