Montreal sees biggest job growth among Canadian, U.S. cities

  Montreal sees biggest job growth among Canadian, U.S. cities Thanks in part to its high tech and creative sectors, Montreal saw 3.6 per cent job growth last year, putting it in the top spot out of cities in Canada and the United States, according to Montréal International. The economic agency looked at the 75,000 jobs added in the greater Montreal area last year and compared that to newly released data from the U.S. to find that Montreal had the highest growth percentage between Canada and the States. An economist with Montréal International, Christian Bernard, said he wasn't surprised when he saw the numbers. "We knew that Montreal was very attractive all around the world," Bernard said.

Hell, to borrow from the French philosopher Jean-Paul Sartre, is other people at the airport, especially if they can’t find entertainment on their devices.

This could be a problem for travellers in Montreal.

According to a new report from the software company Ookla, Montréal—Pierre Elliott Trudeau International Airport has the slowest Wi-Fi of any of the busiest airports in the United States or Canada.

From January through April 2018, the company’s SpeedTest.net service reported average download speeds at Montreal’s airport of 6.41 megabytes per second (Mbps). As a point of comparison, Seattle—Tacoma International Airport, which topped the rankings, offered an average download speed of 103 Mbps in that same period.

The good news is that Montreal had one of the most improved airport Wi-Fi speeds in Speedtest’s rankings, more than tripling its 2017 download speed of 1.92 Mbps.

But, as you may remember from math class, tripling a very small number results in a number that is still small, which is how Montreal remained dead last.

Oh well. There’s always next year, which is roughly when this article will finish loading if you’re reading it at the airport.
