Boingo Wireless Secures Wi-Fi Rights To Cafaro’s Busiest Shopping Centers

Boingo Wireless, Inc. (NASDAQ: WIFI), the Wi-Fi industry’s leading provider of software and services worldwide, today announced an agreement with Cafaro to manage and operate retail Wi-Fi networks in the developer’s three busiest shopping centers. With this agreement, Boingo now manages Wi-Fi networks in 33 malls across the country.

Cafaro’s shopping center guests will be able to access Boingo Wi-Fi on any Wi-Fi-enabled device – including their smartphones, tablets and laptops – while shopping, eating or relaxing. Boingo’s roaming partners, such as Skype and Verizon, will also be able to access the networks easily.

“Everyone in the mall today seems to have a device in-hand, whether they’re actively shopping, doing business with tenants or just watching the world walk by,” said Anthony Cafaro, Jr., Co-President of the Cafaro Company. “Boingo’s valuable experience in managing Wi-Fi in large venues will help us deliver more value to the shopping experience at our properties.”

“Consumers increasingly expect that Wi-Fi will be available when they pull out their smartphone in public places like shopping malls and restaurants,” said Joe DeStasio, business development manager for Boingo Wireless. “With capped data plans on their cellphones, they continue to look for ways to maintain their digital lifestyle without incurring exorbitant data overage fees.”

Boingo will install Wi-Fi networks in the Spotsylvania Towne Centre (Fredericksburg, Va.), the Eastwood Mall (Niles, Ohio) and the South Hill Mall (Puyallup, Wash.).

With the addition of these three shopping centers with 25 million annual guests, Boingo now manages or operates the Wi-Fi offering at 33 malls operated by Cafaro, Caruso, Glimcher, Urban Retail and Westfield LLC, with combined annual foot traffic of 290 million people. Boingo also has secured future rights to an additional 10 centers with another 65 million annual visitors.
