Boingo and Google Team Up for a Little Free WiFi This Month

September 17, 2012 at 9:42 AM | by | ()

Huzzah—that’s what would be saying if Google was truly getting into the WiFi business, but for now we’ll just settle with the fact that they’re teaming up with Boingo. They’re partnering up to offer up around 4,000 WiFi hotspots for free, and thankfully that includes plenty of locations that do their thing at the airport.

Technically Google Play—the go to spot to buy Android apps—is sponsoring this latest giveaway, so unfortunately you’re out of luck if you’re looking to connect with your iPhone.

In total there are 15 airports that have flipped the switch from costly to complimentary, and these spots include New York-JFK, Chicago-O’Hare, and Seattle-Tacoma. That’s in addition to plenty of other malls, cafes, hotels, and other locations. They’re even giving away WiFi at subway stations in New York City where Boingo has a presence—that’s pretty nice.

The free WiFi party ends at the end of the month, so be sure to logon for free while you have the chance. Although we don’t want to seem selfish, we just hope that Google opens up their wallet again later this year. We usually enjoy them giving away a little in-flight WiFi around the holidays—thanks in advance Google!
