Okay, Boingo fans… in celebration of Valentine’s Day, we invite  you to participate in a challenge befitting our most ardent admirers: If you really love us, why don’t you get serious and propose?  Yes, we’re talking about a marriage proposal.

A picture  is worth a thousand kisses. Or, if you have a way with words, sweep us off our feet with a love letter or poem. Now, before you book the reception and sweat over the invite list, we have to warn you: we can’t commit to marrying you. However, as a token of our appreciation,  we will reward the best three proposals with the following prizes (not to mention our undying affection): First place: the best proposer will receive an Apple iPad (16GB, Wi-Fi only) and a free one-year subscription to Boingo Mobile Wi-Fi. Second place: the second best proposer will receive a Roku XDS player for Internet TV entertainment and a six-month subscription to Boingo Mobile Wi-Fi. Third place: the third best proposer will
