CCA Partners With Boingo To Offer Wi-Fi Offload Solutions

Stocks in this article: WIFI

Today, the Competitive Carriers Association (CCA) announced a strategic partnership with Boingo Wireless (NASDAQ: WIFI) to offer Wi-Fi offload solutions to CCA carrier members. In 2012, cellular data usage has averaged between 500-800 MBs per month, with total data usage averaging up to 4 GB per month when Wi-Fi usage is included. Mobile data traffic is expected to continue growing at an exponential rate. To help carriers meet this growing demand and strain on their networks, Boingo is offering white-labeled Wi-Fi solutions to CCA carriers so their customers can connect to Boingo’s global footprint with one single account.

“I am very pleased that CCA has partnered with Boingo to provide Wi-Fi offload solutions to CCA carrier members,” said CCA President & CEO Steven K. Berry. “With the ever increasing demand on wireless networks, it is absolutely critical for competitive carriers to have an offload solution. 22% of mobile traffic is forecasted to be offloaded to Wi-Fi by 2016, and I encourage our members to inquire about the CCA/Boingo program, which could greatly benefit your businesses and your customers.”

“Wi-Fi offload presents a cost-effective option to help competitive carriers manage capacity constraints and better control data roaming costs,” said Luis Serrano, senior vice president of business and corporate development for Boingo Wireless. “Providing a blanket agreement for all CCA carrier members extends the same advantage to all of them, with the ability to keep costs low based on combined commitments.”
