Boingo Bundles With ASUS
Los Angeles-based Boingo Wireless, which operates a global network of Wi-Fi access points, announced today that the firm's software is being pre-loaded on ASUS Eee PC netbooks. Boingo said the bundling deal also calls for ASUS customers to be offered a 50% discount on its Wi-Fi access services. The firm said its software will initially be bundled on the ASUS Eee PC models 1005PE, 1008P, and 1201IN, with support for additional ASUS machines to be added in the future. Boingo operates a global network of Wi-Fi access points, in conjunction with local Wi-Fi network operators. The firm's subscribers gain access to those participating networks using the firm's uniform login software.
