LOS ANGELES – July 5, 2016 – Boingo Wireless (NASDAQ: WIFI), the leading DAS and Wi-Fi provider that serves consumers, carriers and advertisers worldwide, today announced that it has been honored by Cablefax as the “Marketing Team of the Year” at the publication’s annual FAXIES Awards. In addition, Boingo was recognized as winner of the “Best Campaign on a Shoestring Budget” and received an honorable mention for “Acquisition and Upgrade Marketing” for the launch of Boingo Broadband on military bases nationwide.
Cablefax, one of the premier publications of the cable industry, annually salutes the year’s most outstanding communications initiatives and programs in the highly competitive and dynamic cable arena with The FAXIES Awards. The coveted awards set the industry benchmark for excellence across all areas of Marketing and PR in more than 30 categories.
“Our small but nimble marketing team was able to pull off more than 80 events across the country, with very limited budget, to bring an entirely new kind of cable service to our service men and women,” said Dawn Callahan, Chief Marketing Officer for Boingo. “While we’re gratified to be recognized as Marketing Team of the Year, we’re even more excited to be able to deliver an awesome product to our troops.”
Boingo Broadband offers high-speed Wi-Fi and IPTV services at 55 U.S. Army, U.S. Air Force and U.S. Marine Corps bases across the globe. The Boingo Broadband product is very unique. Unlike traditional cable, the consumer simply signs up online and has instant access to high-speed Internet and IPTV services – no truck roll, installation appointment or equipment required. Also unlike cable, the service is completely portable. A subscriber does not have to cancel service when they move to a new base; they simply log on at the new base and Boingo authenticates them automatically. Boingo Broadband subscribers also receive complimentary access to Boingo’s network of one million hotspots worldwide so they can stay connected when they are on the go, home for the holidays, or being deployed around the world.
By the end of 2016, Boingo Broadband will serve over 300,000 beds worldwide. For more information on Boingo Broadband, visit www.boingo.com/broadband.
