If your phone isn’t getting very good service or if for some reason the cellular network is a bit congested and you’re experiencing slow internet speeds, WiFi is a very good alternative. Now for those who are frequent travellers and find themselves at the airport more often than not, you will be pleased to learn that Sprint and Boingo have partnered up to provide free WiFi to its customers.
This multi-year deal will see Boingo expand the number of WiFi hotspots coverage in US airports which now amounts to about 35. According to Sprint, the partnership with Boingo will allow their customers to securely connect to the WiFi and will not require them to perform any kind of login, thus making it easier to use.
As for the business traveller who might find this feature particularly useful, especially if they’re planning on working in between flights and need to fire off emails, hold conference calls, and whatnot, Sprint has promised that these users will be able to use their corporate VPNs reliably and securely.
According to the carrier’s CTO Stephen Bye, “With Wi-Fi being the world’s largest wireless ecosystem, we view it as a highly complementary layer to our network. By enabling customers to move seamlessly between secure Wi-Fi and cellular, our customers will have a better mobile experience in more locations, all while lowering their cost of data usage.” For those who want to know which are the participating airports, head on over to Sprint’s website for the details.
