Boingo was honored for delivering world-class cellular and Wi-Fi connectivity at major airports including John F. Kennedy (JFK), LaGuardia (LGA) and Newark Liberty International (EWR).

At JFK, LGA and EWR, Boingo’s neutral host, converged networks work behind the scenes to reliably power passenger mobile tickets, streaming services, ride share apps and more, as well as create efficiencies with connected airport operations such as baggage tracking, digital signage, mobile concessions and airside maintenance.
Most recently, Boingo launched a converged 5G-enabled network featuring Wi-Fi 6, DAS and private LTE at EWR’s brand-new Terminal A. The network infrastructure enables fast, seamless connectivity for passengers and reliable internet for critical airport operations.
