Boingo's Newest Move Could Be in the Direction of Free WiFi
We admit to being a tad hard on Boingo sometimes, but it's just that free WiFi puts a big smile on our face. Still, any WiFi access gets at least a satisfied smirk, and Boingo continues to evolve.
Boingo hasn’t exactly stated that they’ll be offering up free WiFi anytime soon, but they have gobbled up another tech company that makes us wonder about the future. Cloud 9 Media makes cash by enabling free WiFi access in exchange for advertising, and now they’ve joined the Boingo family.
There’s been speculation that this could change the way—at least in part—that Boingo goes about its business. We’d love for WiFi to be even more affordable, even if we’re forced to watch a thirty second advertisement. In the interim, you probably can find some free-ish WiFi at some of the airports where Cloud 9 Media does its thing, such the hotspots in Charlotte-Douglas International Airport.
