           Norway, Serving More Than 30 Million Travelers Annually

Business Wire

LOS ANGELES -- November 05, 2012

Boingo Wireless (NASDAQ: WIFI), the Wi-Fi industry’s leading provider of
software and services worldwide, today announced a new agreement with Oslo
Lufthavn Tele & Data AS (OLTD) to manage and operate Wi-Fi services at the
three most highly-trafficked airports in Norway: Oslo Airport (OSL); Bergen
Airport, Flesland (BGO); and Stavanger Airport, Sola (SVG). Collectively,
these airports serve more than 30 million passengers annually. With the
addition of the three largest airports in Norway, Boingo now manages Wi-Fi
services at more than 20 European airports serving nearly 275 million
passengers each year.

Boingo will broadcast its “Boingo Hotspot” SSID throughout the airports, and
will fully manage the user experience at these leading Nordic destinations.
Boingo Wi-Fi services include authentication, roaming access and support to
ensure quality connections for all users. Boingo’s Wi-Fi services are slated
to launch at all three airports in December, just in time for the holiday
travel season.

“Introducing Boingo’s internationally recognizable Wi-Fi service to our Oslo,
Bergen and Stavanger airports will offer our travelers flexible access options
and meet their increasing need for fast, reliable connectivity,” said Morten
Eldevik, CEO and managing director of Oslo Lufthavn Tele & Data AS. “Boingo is
a leading provider of Wi-Fi, and the company’s neutral-host roaming platform
will allow our passengers to stay productive and entertained without incurring
expensive international roaming charges.”

“Norway’s three largest airports are seeing strong international passenger
growth. This is driven by the booming shipping and oil industries as well as
increased tourism to the mountains and fjords of Norway. This makes them ideal
additions to our growing portfolio of international airports,” said Bjorn
Thorngren, director of EMEA for Boingo Wireless. “The launch of our services
at these key Nordic airports will ensure that more of our international
customers can stay connected and save on international roaming fees as they
travel for work or play.”

Passengers will be able to access Boingo Wi-Fi at all three airports via
Boingo access plans, including Boingo Europe Plus, providing unlimited access
at more than 200,000 hotspots throughout the Europe, Middle East and Africa
region for €27.95 per month, and Boingo Global, providing flat rate access
anywhere in the world for €49 per month. Hourly and day passes will also be
available for purchase.

Boingo services at the Oslo, Bergen and Stavanger airports will also be
available to Boingo’s roaming and platform service partners, including Orange
France, TeliaSonera, Skype, LGU+, Korea Telecom, Telefonica, and Verizon,
which wholesale Wi-Fi access from Boingo and provide self-branded Wi-Fi to
their customers as part of their existing services. Boingo and OLTD also have
a continuing agreement that allows Boingo customers to roam onto OLTD’s 43
other airport networks, which include Bodø, Tromsø, Trondheim and other
airports throughout the country.

The company manages Wi-Fi services at more than 60 leading airports worldwide,
including London Heathrow, Chicago O’Hare, New York John F. Kennedy, Beijing
