Boingo Now Lets Users Buy Wi-Fi Through Apple iTunes Account

iPod Touch, iPhone, and iPad Users Can Purchase Wi-Fi Credits Via New Application Available From Apple’s App Store

LOS ANGELES — (BUSINESS WIRE) — March 29, 2010 — Boingo Wireless, the global leader in Wi-Fi, today announced a new application designed for iPod Touch, iPhone, and iPad users that allows consumers to purchase one-hour credits for Wi-Fi service directly from their Apple iTunes account. The “Boingo Wi-Fi Credits” software application is immediately available for download from Apple’s U.S. App Store.

Consumers can purchase the $1.99 Wi-Fi credits in advance or at the time of connect simply by confirming the purchase using their iTunes account login. The credits can be redeemed for 60 consecutive minutes of Wi-Fi access at a single Boingo hotspot, and can be used at any of the more than 125,000 Boingo hotspots worldwide.

Apple mobile device owners can purchase as many credits as they want. Those users who buy credits in blocks of ten will be rewarded with an additional free credit. The credits are good for up to one full year after purchase.

“Boingo’s new Wi-Fi credits are an easy, affordable way for millions of users to buy Wi-Fi access through an existing iTunes account,” said Dave Hagan, president and CEO for Boingo Wireless. “For Apple device owners who find themselves needing Wi-Fi access only occasionally, it’s a great way to put some credits in the bank, so you can draw them down when you need them most.”

The “Boingo Wi-Fi Credits” software also identifies Boingo hotspots and allows you to search for hotspots using a new mapping feature. The application is available immediately to iTunes users with a U.S. account and will be available to global customers in the near future.

For consumers who connect to Wi-Fi hotspots frequently, Boingo’s subscription service, “Boingo Mobile” provides unlimited global access to Boingo hotspots for just $7.95 per month. To sign up, consumers simply download the free Boingo Mobile software, “Boingo Mobile Wi-Fi,” which is also available for free from the iTunes App Store.
