Boingo Bounces Into Nextel

Santa Monica-based Boingo Wireless is powering a new Nextel WiFi HotSpot service launched last Friday, targeted at business travelers. Nextel said that it was launching an unlimited broadband Internet access service for laptop computers at a set monthly fee, using Boingo's network of North American hotspot locations. Nextel is also partnering with Wayport to add additional WiFi coverage in hotel rooms. The new service is priced at $39.99 per month. Boingo operates a network of WiFi hotspot access points with an integrated billing and tracking system for wireless operators.
