Stocks in this article: WIFI

Boingo Wireless, Inc. (NASDAQ: WIFI), the Wi-Fi industry’s leading provider of software and services worldwide, today announced that the Raleigh-Durham Airport Authority has selected the company to manage and operate tiered Wi-Fi services throughout Raleigh-Durham International Airport (RDU).

Boingo’s hybrid network approach includes tiered Wi-Fi services to meet the diverse needs of Raleigh-Durham’s domestic and international travelers. Tiered services include a complimentary Wi-Fi service option for casual users looking to surf the Internet, check their email and update their social media profiles. Boingo will also offer premium Wi-Fi services, allowing business travelers and power users to engage in data intensive activities such as accessing corporate VPNs, downloading large files and streaming high definition video.

“Boingo enables RDU to provide flexible Wi-Fi offerings to our travelers, while managing the influx of network traffic to ensure fast, reliable Internet connections for all of our guests,” said Duane Legan, RDU’s acting deputy airport director for information services.

“For more than a decade, Boingo has offered innovative Wi-Fi solutions at high-traffic consumer venues such as airports, shopping malls and stadiums, and we understand the complexity of managing growing networks in high demand,” said Zack Sterngold, vice president of airport business development for Boingo Wireless. “We look forward to extending our services to RDU, and to helping the airport generate the revenue necessary for continued growth and amenity enhancements.”

Travelers who wish to utilize Boingo’s complimentary services can enjoy free 45-minute Wi-Fi sessions after watching a brief advertisement. Boingo’s premium services are available via any of Boingo’s Wi-Fi plans, including Boingo Unlimited, which offers unlimited Wi-Fi access at all Boingo hotspots in the Americas for $9.95 per month. Hourly and day passes will also be available for purchase.

Boingo’s roaming and platform service partners will also have access to the premium Wi-Fi services at RDU. Boingo’s wholesale partners, which provide self-branded Wi-Fi to their customers as part of their service offering, include Korea Telecom, LGU+, Orange France, Skype, Telefonica, TeliaSonera and Verizon.
