Boingo Launches iTunes Payments for Wi-Fi Subscriptions
New Wi-Finder App Enables In-App Sign-Up Using iTunes Account; Simplifies iOS
Sign-Up and Wi-Fi Access at More Than 600,000 Hotspots
LOS ANGELES -- May 07, 2013
Boingo Wireless (NASDAQ: WIFI), the leading DAS and Wi-Fi provider that serves
consumers, carriers and advertisers worldwide, today announced that iOS users
can now use their iTunes account to purchase a Boingo subscription, making it
easier than ever to enjoy Wi-Fi access at more than 600,000 hotspots
The latest version of Boingo’s award-winning Wi-Finder app for iOS – now
available on the iTunes App Store – links directly to a customer’s iTunes
account, streamlining subscription sign-up and monthly billing by using
existing iTunes credentials and billing information. Users can activate the
new plan on multiple iOS devices, allowing customers to quickly connect all of
their favorite iOS devices to unlimited Boingo Wi-Fi without entering account
“Signing up for a Boingo subscription just became as easy as typing in your
iTunes password,” said Dawn Callahan, senior vice president of marketing and
sales for Boingo Wireless. “iOS device owners already use their iTunes account
to buy apps, music and other products on their phone or tablet; we’re adding
that level of simplicity to the process of buying Wi-Fi.” The new iTunes-based
plan is $7.99 per month.
In addition to enabling seamless login at hundreds of thousands of hotspots
around the world, the app also includes an easy-to-use VPN service that
protects user data free of charge.
The Boingo Wi-Finder app is available for all leading platforms, including
Android, Windows and Macintosh. Boingo’s Wi-Finder app received the 2012
About.com Reader’s Choice Award for “Best Travel” app, and the company is a
three-time winner of the award for “Best Wi-Fi Service” from Global Traveler
