Boingo offers in-flight Wi-Fi roaming
Posted on 12-May-2005 10:17 | Tags Filed under: News



The expanded wireless roaming coverage is a result of an agreement with Connexion by Boeing that integrates all of the flights equipped with the company's high-speed Internet and data service into the Boingo Roaming System.

With access to this complete network, business travelers can now use their Boingo account to access more than 17,000 hot spots at restaurants, hotels and airports as well as an expanding number of International and soon U.S. domestic flights.

Boingo is offering a special promotion where new Boingo subscribers can receive a free in-flight Wi-Fi connection (a US$29.99 value) when they sign-up for a Boingo monthly account with a 3-month commitment.

Boingo also partners with service providers to allow their users to access these hot spots through its Boingo Platform Services program. The program provides partners with access to this network, customized client software, and a full suite of back-office billing, roaming, mediation and clearinghouse services to allow them to offer their own Wi-Fi service quickly and cost effectively. To date, the company has announced Platform Services partnerships with Earthlink, Fiberlink, BT Infonet Services Corp., MCI, and Telecom Italia.

Boingo wireless access is now offered on Connexion by Boeing-equipped flights from Lufthansa, Scandinavian Airlines System (SAS), Japan Airlines, and ANA and Singapore Airlines. In addition, China Airlines, Korean Air, Asiana and El Al Israeli Airlines have also indicated their plans to begin offering the service to their passengers this year.

The Boingo Roaming System offers business travelers the best choice of Wi-Fi hot spots by combining the locations of more than 90 leading Wi-Fi operators into one worldwide network, and allowing the user to roam onto any of these locations with a single subscription using Boingo's Wi-Fi client software.
