LOS ANGELES, JANUARY 27, 2022—Boingo Wireless, a leading provider of wireless solutions for the U.S. military, has launched 1Gig high-speed internet service at Fort Polk military base in central Louisiana. With a wired, dedicated connection, Fort Polk is the first base with access to Boingo’s high-speed fiber service, boasting up to 1Gig download and upload speeds, designed for uninterrupted streaming, gaming and more.
At a rural, remote location like Fort Polk, fast, easy, always-available internet access is life changing for soldiers relying on connectivity for education, communication and entertainment.
Boingo’s fiber 1Gig service is among the fastest at-home internet plans on the market, with speeds up to 20 times faster than traditional internet plans. Users can connect directly to the ethernet port or use their own router to plug into the network and bring reliable, stable internet to devices. Keeping members of the armed forces connected, Boingo’s award-winning broadband service is designed with portable features to suit troops’ lifestyles with no contract, installation appointment or technician required.
At Fort Polk, Boingo worked in conjunction with the Army & Air Force Exchange Service to support the Army’s initiative to improve quality of life for soldiers and families.
“We are proud to support the significant upgrades being made across Fort Polk, bringing our unmatched connectivity to soldiers with the fastest internet plan on the market,” said Bruce Crair, Boingo senior vice president and general manager, military. “From video streaming to real-time gaming, troops stationed at Fort Polk now have seamless, fast internet to make it all possible.”
The high-speed internet service adds to several recent and planned Fort Polk upgrades, including new dining options and an improved shopping experience at the base’s mini mall. Boingo and Fort Polk will come together this morning for a ribbon cutting ceremony to celebrate and introduce the new network service for residents.
