It was announced earlier today that AT&T and Boingo Wireless, the “leading” provider of software and services for the Wi-Fi industry, have signed a deal which gives AT&T customers access to free Wi-Fi at many major international airports around the world. Whereas Boingo customers can now connect to AT&T’s public Wi-Fi hotspots in the country. Travelers can connect to Boingo’s global network of Wi-Fi hotspots using the AT&T Wi-Fi International app, provided that they have a 300MB or 800MB Data Global Add-on package from the carrier. Only then the app will be able to access Boingo hotspots at major international airports around the globe.

Boingo offers over 600,000 Wi-Fi hotspots in various countries, though initially AT&T users will only have access to those located at major airports, at launch. It is said that the service will continue to expand during this year. Under this global Wi-Fi roaming agreement, AT&T users will be able to access up to 1GB of Wi-Fi each month without any additional charges. Both AT&T and Boingo wireless are member companies of the Wireless Broadband Alliance and they are taking part in Next Generation Hotspot trials being conducted by the Alliance.
