We Just Did Something S.M.A.R.T.!

When you’re traveling, it’s always nice to have a little piece of home with you. Well, we’ve got just the thing, because Boingo’s fastest tier delivers speeds faster than the average home broadband experience! The average broadband connection speed in the United States is 12.6Mbps, while we offer new blazing-fast speeds of up to 20 Mbps for power users and subscribers. In the latter half of December, over 5.8 million travelers will by flying home or away, and we’re here to connect them (and hopefully you)! These new faster speeds are part of Boingo’s S.M.A.R.T. network approach, which stands for Secure, Multiplatform, Analytics-Driven, Responsive and Tiered. Each location has its own unique network, and continually self-regulates its performance to serve customers based on their current needs. Now that’s innovative. One of the best parts of S.M.A.R.T. is you have choices. Power users who need their airport Wi-Fi to function like an extension of their home or office environment can choose from several paid options, including speeds of 20Mbps – bursting to 50Mbps. All Boingo subscribers, including those enrolled in the American Express Preferred Plan, will automatically receive the highest tier of speed when they log in. How’s that for white glove service? So, whether you’re

Life as a Boingo Intern: Part 4

This guest post is authored by Jeremy Mintz, Boingo’s summer marketing intern and Junior at Tulane University. To tell you the truth, I was a little worried. Never have I taken on responsibility like this before. But while I write in sadness as my internship comes to a close, I am happy to report that I have truly come a long way. I have learned so much this summer at Boingo, not only about marketing and the workplace in general, but about myself. Aside from individual projects and assignments that I’ve gained tremendous experience from, perhaps the most captivating part has been witnessing how the business comes together through meticulous collaboration and teamwork. A prime example of this was the Hackathon, a marathon style event that saw engineers team up with marketers and HR specialists join forces with finance gurus in an attempt to create an idea that could catapult the business forward. I was able to be a part of it by acting as an ambassador, along with Spencer Johnson, with whom I forged a friendship throughout the event that kept us at the office well beyond normal work hours. Although I did not contribute to a team, I
