Dubai International Airport (DXB) officially has the world's fastest WiFi service, according to a new report.

Following a recent upgrade earlier this year, Dubai Airports installed WOW-Fi which provides a speedy connection, allowing faster downloads and uploads of emails, images, videos and social media updates.

Ookla, the firm behind the internet speed test, confirmed Dubai Airports claim that ‘Dubai reigns when it comes to free airport WiFi".

"The UAE has clearly prioritised airport WiFi because the WiFi download speed at Dubai International is nearly double the country average of 22.12Mbps," Ookla said in a statement.

Seoul International Airport came in at second with an average download and upload speed of 26.52Mbps and 32.76Mbps, respectively.

Tokyo Airport followed with an average download and upload speed of 18.28Mbps and 21.89Mbps.

To ensure the speed and reliability, Dubai Airports is investing in more than 6,000 new WiFi access points to upgrade the entire wireless network infrastructure across both airports.
