If you're stuck at JFK right now, there's a chance you're reading this on the airport's brand spankin' new free Wifi. The Post reports that the (very, very long overdue) upgrade is in the process of rolling out in every terminal at JFK, LaGuardia, and Newark.

Though it's currently only available at JFK's Terminal 4 and Newark's Terminal C, by the end of March, they'll all be completely wireless. But be warned: the Wifi is only free for the first 30 minutes—which, if you're lucky, is about as much time as you'll spend there anyway. Afterwards, we've got you covered.
