Wi Fi roaming provider, Boingo Wireless has announced a global Wi Fi roaming agreement with AT&T.
Travellers abroad can now gain access, via the AT&T Wi-Fi International App, to Boingo's global network of Wi-Fi hotspots managed and operated by Boingo's subsidiary, Concourse Communications. The AT&T Wi-Fi International App lets AT&T customers on applicable data global packages access up to 1GB of Wi-Fi each month at no additional charge.
Boingo Wi-Fi hotspots at major international airports are available to AT&T customers today, with service continuing to expand throughout 2013.
Additionally, as part of the agreement, Boingo customers traveling in the United States will also be able to access AT&T's network of Wi-Fi hotspots throughout the country.
"AT&T's domestic Wi-Fi network helps fill in the gaps for Boingo users actively seeking Wi-Fi hotspots," said Howard Buzick, vice president of business development for Boingo Wireless. "With the explosion in both Wi-Fi enabled devices and customer data demand, Wi-Fi roaming continues to be a key facilitator for global data access."
Both AT&T and Boingo Wireless are Wireless Broadband Alliance (WBA) member companies with executives serving on the WBA Board of Directors. The companies also are currently participating in the WBA's Next Generation Hotspot trials for seamless Wi-Fi roaming.
