When it comes to packing for vacation, which items are on your can’t-leave-home-without list? Would it surprise you to learn that Americans ranked smartphones as the most important travel item after passports?

Today’s travelers are more dependent than ever on their mobile devices, which serve as an all-in-one concierge, guide and companion on trips. In related news, a separate Hotels.com survey revealed that free Wi-Fi continues to be the number one hotel amenity for both leisure and business travelers.

At Boingo, we anticipate the demand for public Wi-Fi in airports to continue to grow based on these trends. That’s why we’re constantly evaluating and innovating Boingo’s service offerings to meet the needs of today‚Äôs tech-savvy, device-dependent travelers.
