LOS ANGELES -- January 29, 2013

Boingo Wireless (NASDAQ: WIFI), the Wi-Fi industry’s leading provider of
software and services worldwide, today announced the release of an enhanced
version of its award-winning Wi-Finder app for Apple’s iOS 6 operating system.
The updated app leverages new features in iOS 6 to simplify the connection
experience for users of iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch devices, and makes it
easier than ever to get connected to Boingo hotspots.

The Wi-Finder app for iOS 6 now automatically notifies users that Boingo can
be used when the device connects to a Boingo hotspot and identifies Boingo
networks in the Wi-Fi settings when several networks are available. Boingo
subscribers can also enable automatic login for participating Boingo hotspots,
making Internet access fast, easy and seamless on an iOS 6 device.

“Simply put, our newest app for iOS improves the user experience
dramatically,” said Dawn Callahan, senior vice president of marketing and
sales for Boingo Wireless. “The new Wi-Finder app helps our customers find and
connect to Boingo hotspots more quickly and easily than ever before by taking
an active role in identifying Boingo networks and helping users get logged in
as quickly as possible.”

New Features

For the first time, the enhanced Wi-Finder app for iOS makes it easy to
identify a Boingo hotspot at a glance in the Wi-Fi Settings menu. Boingo
hotspots – including more than 125 partner networks – are automatically tagged
with “Use Boingo Wi-Fi Here!” to help users find the right network the first
time.

The new Wi-Finder app also allows Boingo subscribers to automatically log in
when they are in supported Boingo hotspots. By selecting “Enable Auto-Login”
in the app’s settings, subscribers can bypass the login process, and
accelerate their on-ramp to the Internet in select hotspots that are included
in their monthly plan. The app will not automatically log in to hotspots that
will incur premium charges.

Boingo’s smart client for iOS 6 devices also simplifies the login process at
Boingo hotspots. Wi-Finder uses the iOS 6 notification service to alert users
that Boingo Wi-Fi is available when the device connects to a Boingo-enabled
network. Getting online is as easy as tapping the notification to launch the
app and log in.

“As mobile device usage and data demand continue to increase, we know that
mobile device users will be actively seeking Wi-Fi connections to avoid
expensive data overage charges,” added Callahan. “We’ve removed even more
barriers so our customers can take full advantage of the cost savings of
Wi-Fi.”

Same Great App

The enhanced Wi-Finder app for iOS 6 still offers users the features that
earned it the 2012 About.com Readers’ Choice award for “Best Travel” app,
including a built-in, customizable data tracker that helps users manage data
usage by keeping tabs on cellular and Wi-Fi usage. The app also lets users
secure their connections on public Wi-Fi networks with the Boingo VPN. Free to
subscribers, the Boingo VPN offers a one-click simple security option when
users are on an open network.

The app also connects to more than 600,000 Boingo premium hotspots worldwide
with a single Boingo account. The app’s location directory includes more than
150,000 additional free hotspots that have been validated by Wi-Finder users
through a crowd-sourced approach.
