Boingo's WiFi plans may come in handy for frequent travelers, but they haven't exactly been the most straightforward -- especially if you're using multiple devices. The company's gone some way towards simplifying things today, however, announcing that it's revised its unlimited WiFi data plans so that you can now use any two WiFi-enabled devices (as opposed to just two laptops) as part of the basic plan, and up to five more for an additional five bucks apiece. Unfortunately, none of those changes extend to the company's recent partnership with GoGo for in-flight internet access, which you still have to cough up the full price for.

Boingo Enhances, Simplifies Unlimited Wi-Fi Data Plans

Boingo Moves to Single Account, Multiple Devices Across Unlimited Data Plans


LOS ANGELES--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Boingo Wireless, Inc. (NASDAQ: WIFI), the Wi-Fi industry's leading provider of software and services worldwide, announced today that it has enhanced its most popular unlimited Wi-Fi data plans, simplifying Wi-Fi access for users with more than one Wi-Fi enabled device. Users can now log in with laptops, tablets, smartphones and any variety of other Wi-Fi enabled consumer electronics devices with a single account.

"At a time when everyone else seems to be making it harder to get connected to the mobile Internet by capping usage or throttling throughput, we're making it even easier to use our unlimited Wi-Fi plans," said Dawn Callahan, vice president of consumer marketing. "People now rely on multiple devices to get their Internet on, whether Facebooking, Tweeting, checking in, uploading photos, downloading iTunes purchases, or streaming music and video. We just want to say, 'We've got your back.'"

Popular monthly plans with unlimited Wi-Fi access, such as Boingo Unlimited (Americas), Boingo UK + Ireland, Boingo Europe Plus, and Boingo Asia Pacific, can now be used with any Wi-Fi enabled device. Users can choose to log in via the splash page presented in the hotspot, or with Wi-Finder, Boingo's simple but powerful roaming app that helps you log in to more than 325,000 hotspots with a single click.

These unlimited data plans include up to two unique devices per month – smartphones, tablets, laptops, cameras, e-readers or other Wi-Fi enabled device; however, power users and families can add even more devices for an additional fee of $5 per device, per month up to a maximum of five devices, total. Users can change which of their devices are authorized via the Boingo online self-care tool at https://my.boingo.com.

Existing subscription customers from the affected unlimited plans will be migrated to the enhanced plans at no additional cost, gaining access to unlimited Wi-Fi with a wider selection of devices under the same terms of their existing plans.
