Boingo Wireless Powers WiFi At U.S. Cellular Field
Los Angeles-based Boingo Wireless is heading to the U.S. Cellular Field, the home of the Chicago White Sox, the company announced today, after signing a deal to manage and operate that field's public Wi-Fi service. Financial details of the deal were not disclosed. Boingo said the deal includes both complimentary Internet access for White Sox fans, as well as a higher bandwidth, premium service which can be purchased using Boingo Wi-Fi credits. Boingo said its network has already been deployed throughout the ballpark. Boingo has recently announced a significant number of deals to expand its management of Wi-Fi at venues, including one earlier this month with Denver International Airport, and a batch of deals to manage Wi-Fi at shopping malls.
