Boingo Wireless Expands In Canada
Los Angeles-based Boingo Wireless, the provider of Wi-Fi roaming and hotspot services, said today that it has inked a deal to expand its network in Canada. The firm said it has inked a deal with MTS, a Canadian national communications provider, to add over 150 MTS hotspot locations to its network. The hotspots cover Winnipeg, Brandon, and other communities in Manitoba. Terms of the deal were not disclosed. Boingo offers up both unlimited and pay-per-use wireless Internet services through a global network of Wi-Fi hotspot providers, and also operates its own network of Wi-Fi hotspots, particularly in airport locations. Boingo said it now has a network of nearly 1,200 Wi-Fi hotspots in Canada.
