  • "We are very pleased with the results to date. You are among the top performers of all of our digital placements. We expected the user experience was going to be great, and that presenting your users with our video was going to go a long way towards our awareness goals. What we did not expect was the massive flow of traffic to the Rackspace website from your users!

    Chris MuldaurSVP, DirectPartners

  • Boingo is delivering the 2nd largest volume of site visitors of the entire campaign at the lowest CPV. These users are very qualified, as evidenced in time on site, low bounce rate, etc… And the icing on the cake – something we never expected, some of these users are actually downloading our Private Cloud over your wi-fi connection."

I sit down and open my laptop, hoping to find an open Wi-Fi network. Lo and behold, a Boingo hotspot is available and I'm online in just 2 minutes. What an awesome user experience - Hipmunk Flight & Hotel Search is proud to be a part of the Cloud Nine platform."
