Spain's airport authority has said it will start providing free and unlimited Wi-Fi in 46 airports across the country by the end of the year.

Airport authority AENA said its board has approved a plan that envisions making Spanish airports among Europe's best for fast and free Wi-Fi service for passengers.

Free Wi-Fi is currently available in most Spanish airports but there is a 30-minute usage limit.

AENA said in a statement that faster speeds will be offered, plus a premium service for passengers willing to pay for it.

The authority said it expects the new free Wi-Fi system will be available at airports towards the end of this year.
