At Los Angeles airport, wi-fi signal named "Al-Quida Free Terror Network" (sic) has resulted in a long delay for passengers on a plane. There were no crime reported after several hour an investigation.
Suddenly passenger informed American Airlines cabin crew when his smartphone detected the network as one available nearby and police were notified.
On Sunday flight from LA to London was eventually rescheduled for Monday.Many broadband subscribers re-name their home wi-fi network to personalize it.
When a device comes within range of the network, its name will appear on a list of potentially available wi-fi connections.
While some use their family name or the name of their house, others take a more satirical approach.
'Sometimes it's funny'
"It can be a kooky way of saying you support a local football team or you want to bait your neighbor who supports the opposing team," said Stuart Miles of tech review site Pocket Lint.
"It look funny.Some people use it as advertising. It's an unwritten code of spreading a message that you're allowed to do"
In a discussion about favorite wi-fi names on community site Reddit, users admitted to using titles like "FBI Surveillance Van", "ISIS HQ" and names that sounded like computer viruses to alarm passers-by.
