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

What IS Boingo, Anyway?


I have a confession to make. I like to chat it up. So when I was vacationing with my family last week in Washington DC and someone struck up a conversation, I didn’t shy away. While I was standing in a restaurant waiting for a table, I was mistaken for a grad student as there happened to be an MBA mixer going on that evening. Even though my cover was quickly blown when my 9 year old asked me when we were going to be seated (again), the student and I kept talking. He asked me about what it was like to be a “grown up” and about my line of work. After I convinced him to never grow up, I told him about my career in marketing and about Boingo. He said Boingo sounded familiar, so I took this golden opportunity to evangelize! I asked him what he knew about Boingo and he said, “Is it Wi-Fi in airports?” That’s usually the response most people give – and for good reason. Boingo operates the Wi-Fi network at more than 70 major airports worldwide. In fact, 60% of all North American passenger traffic goes through an airport where Boingo runs
