Boingo Signs New Berlin Airport
Los Angeles-based Boingo Wireless is continuing its expansion of its airport Wi-Fi services, saying today that it has been chosen to be the exclusive wi-Fi provider for the new, Berlin Brandenburg Airport Willy Brandt (BER). Financial impact of the deal was not disclosed, however, the firm said its Boingo Wi-Fi services will be available at the location when it opens on March 17th, 2013. Boingo has been expanding out the network of airports which are using the company to manage their Wi-Fi access services. The company provides Wi-Fi to London Heathrow, Chicago O;Hare, New York John F. Kennedy, Denver International, and many others, with a total of 60 airports worldwide. One airport that is not managed by Boingo, strangely enough, is Los Angeles International; Boingo recently has been trying to get LAX to run a open RFP for providing Wi-Fi services in terminals, after the Los Angeles City Council overturned a move by the Airport Commission to award a noncompetitive, sweetheart deal to another, Wi-Fi provider at LAX.
