Boingo 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.
The app lets AT&T customers on applicable data global packages access up to 1GB of Wi-Fi each month at no additional charge.
The total Boingo managed and operated network reaches more than 1.5 billion people worldwide annually.
Boingo Wi-Fi hotspots at major international airports are available to AT&T customers today, with the 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, including airports, restaurants, sporting arenas and retail locations.
JR Wilson, vice president, Partnerships and Alliances, AT&T Mobility, said: “We’re committed to keeping our customers connected to the people, places and information that matter most, which is why we’re pleased that many of them can now connect to Boingo’s global Wi-Fi during their travels abroad.”
Howard Buzick, vice president of business development for Boingo Wireless, added: “AT&T’s domestic Wi-Fi network helps fill in the gaps for Boingo users actively seeking Wi-Fi hotspots.
“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.”
