Here at Boingo, we’re all very passionate about protecting the environment and contributing to the community– both of which are everyday efforts for us. Recently, CEA (Consumer Electronics Association) showcased our environmental and community initiatives in this blog article. Highlights: “For Hagan [our CEO] and Boingo, going green is really all about incrementally doing the right things.” “The [Green Boingo Employee] committee started by implementing a few simple wins – quick changes that yielded real results.

We thought this was a good suggestion given the majority of our hotspots are roaming locations and therefore it’s hard to know when and where you could use the service. So we designed a piece of software that automatically pops up on your laptop to alert you when you’re in a Boingo hotspot. Since the software also stores your username and password, all it takes is one click to get online. Nice! We received positive feedback, especially from Boingo Unlimited customers who expressed that the software’s notification feature
