The Airport does not guarantee 100% uptime of the Service, nor does it guarantee it's availability at any time at any particular location in the Joseph M. McDade Terminal Building. The Airport reserves the right to cancel all free Wi-Fi Internet Service to any and all end-users if it determines that such end-users are abusing the system, violating any applicable law or the terms of use, or violating any prohibited use or activity.
