"Shoppers can stay connected, update their status or share their shopping experience while ensuring they don't exceed their monthly cellular data cap via complimentary Boingo Wi-Fi at select malls in cities such as Los Angeles, San Francisco, Seattle and Tampa, among others. Google Offers is also extending a discounted Boingo Wi-Fi access offer to travelers at 16 airports nationwide. Passengers traveling through airports including New York's John F. Kennedy and LaGuardia, Chicago's O'Hare and Midway airports, Houston's Hobby and George Bush Intercontinental, and more, can take advantage of a special Google Offer for 50% off a Boingo AsYouGo 24-hour access pass when they subscribe to Google Offers in their city and purchase the deal. This deal is limited to one per person. "The expansion of the Google Offers sponsorship is a testament to our ability to deliver specific, place-based brand introductions to new customers via the Boingo Wi-Fi network," said Dawn Callahan, vice president of consumer marketing for Boingo Wireless. "Our location-based media services provide a new way to reach mobile consumers with personalized messages where they work, shop and play."
The more the betrer
I wish Boingo would just get enough coverage to cover areas I live in:D It'll probably will never happen though, I live in a very rural area.
I used Boingo at Chicago O'Hare airport numerous times.
It's a good service and the speed is pretty decent for public wi-fi, but the tool they force you to use is extremely annoying when you're not at a hotspot.
For normal users who don't want to play around with msconfig and startup items, the tool would possibly drive them to the brink of insanity.
Me too, it really is to bad its not profitable enough to make hotspots around me.
I love wifi, happy to see that there will be even more free wifi spots. Im still holding out against mobile networks and smart phones for the time being.
I don't typically use public wifi. I have no idea what I'm really connecting to so I'd rather just use my cell service if I need to do something.
