Boingo Awarded U.S. Marine Corps On-Base Broadband Internet, Internet Protocol TV Contracts

Boingo Wireless (NASDAQ: WIFI), the leading DAS and Wi-Fi provider that serves consumers, carriers and advertisers worldwide, today announced an agreement with Marine Corps Community Services (MCCS) that enables the company to provide Internet Protocol TV (IPTV) and broadband Internet services at all United States Marine Corps (USMC) bases worldwide.

The contract with Headquarters, U.S. Marine Corps Semper Fit & Exchange Services Division authorizes Boingo to install wireless infrastructure and provide recreational broadband Internet and live TV for Marines at Marine Corps bases around the globe. Initial deployments will include all Marine Corps bases within the United States as well as two bases in Japan, the first international bases to offer Boingo Broadband services. Boingo is slated to launch services at the new bases in 2014.

“We look forward to bringing Marines closer to their loved ones and to their favorite sports and entertainment – even when they are far from home – through our fast and reliable communications services,” said Tim Rout, vice president of military business development for Boingo Wireless. “Like our recent deployment at Marine Corps Base Camp Pendleton, these new large-scale deployments will feature state-of-the-art wireless network design and infrastructure to ensure high quality connectivity.”

Boingo’s military-centered connectivity solutions provide flexible Internet and TV options to Marine Corps customers. Marines on participating bases can enjoy basic Internet and local TV channels, or can upgrade to premium packages providing enhanced entertainment options and blazing fast Internet speeds for online video gaming. Military subscribers can also access the Internet via Boingo’s global network of more than a million hotspots as they travel the world.

The contract also provides a vehicle for other military branches to pursue service agreements with Boingo, including the Army and Air Force Exchange Service (AAFES); U.S. Army Family and MWR Command (FMWRC); Air Force Non-Appropriated Fund Purchasing Office (AFNAFPO); Navy Exchange Service Command (NEXCOM); Commander, Navy Installations Command (CNIC); Fleet and Family Readiness (F&FR); and Coast Guard Exchange System (CGES).
