Free Internet In Pa If Youre On The Turnpike

02.18.13 | Sarah Harnisch

There is now free wi-fi in all service plazas along the Pennsylvania turkpike. The Turnpike says "the wifi is available inside the building, and it's free, so as soon as you get to your device, turn it on, and accept the internet connection. There you go." Officials say they'd rather have people wait till they get to a rest stop to get online instead of driving and checking email and facebook on their phones on the highway. They said "we see driver distraction becoming a major issue on the Turnpike. We want to provide options for our customers so they can stay connected, and stay safe at the same time." The wifi will work with smartphones, tablets, laptops, or any other portable device.
