For many tourists, Wi-Fi in airports is a necessity. The thought of landing in a foreign country with no means of contacting anyone is unnerving, to say the least.

Wi-Fi provides them with the means to reach out to their family and friends quickly without having to install a separate SIM card, which can be difficult to acquire if you are arriving in the wee hours of the morning.

Most airports have implemented this feature, but are they all of good quality?

Rotten WiFi, a Wi-Fi and 3G/4G ratings crowdsourcing platform owned by UK-based telecom solutions provider TelcoQ, has released a report of the world’s Top 20 Wi-Fi-enabled airports of 2015 ranked by connection speed.

Asian airports are clearly leading the way, taking up 12 spots on the list including the top spot, which went to Thailand’s Don Mueang International Airport (DMK). US airports also fared pretty well, taking up five spots, with US’s Bill and Hillary Clinton National Airport (LIT) in Arkansas taking second place.

Surprisingly, despite being touted as a highly-developed continent, Europe’s airports’ Wi-Fi capabilities were clearly wanting. The only European country that cracked the Top 10 was Estonia’s Lennart Meri Tallinn Airport (TLL), with an average speed of 23.96 Mbps, while the rest — Germany’s Munich (MUC) and Frankfurt (FRA) airports barely made it to the list, taking up the 18th and 19th spots.

Singapore’s Changi International Airport (SIN) was also surprisingly low on the list — at Number 13, despite being rated as the top airport of 2015.

Here is the full report.
