Boingo Wireless (NASDAQ: WIFI), the leading DAS and Wi-Fi provider that serves consumers, carriers and advertisers worldwide, today announced an agreement with The Army & Air Force Exchange Service to provide on-base broadband Internet and Internet Protocol TV (IPTV) services, starting at more than a dozen of the largest Army and Air Force bases in the continental United States.
The long-term contract authorizes Boingo to provide Internet and TV service on large installations including Forts Bliss, Benning, Leonard Wood, Campbell and Irwin. Boingo’s Wi-Fi technology eliminates the need for expensive infrastructure upgrades and will enable service launch as soon as the first quarter of 2014.
“Our Boingo Broadband and Boingo TV offerings are designed to provide affordable services to our troops, and to fit their dynamic lifestyle,” said Tim Rout, vice president of military business development for Boingo Wireless. “We’re proud to be able to serve the connectivity needs of our Soldiers and Airmen, and provide a superior level of service that they can count on.”
Boingo’s connectivity solutions for the military provide flexible options with tiers of higher-speed Internet service and expanded TV programming available. In addition, military subscribers will also receive access to the Internet via Boingo’s global network of more than 1 million Wi-Fi hotspots.
Through its acquisition of Endeka, an experienced provider of commercial Internet and IPTV services throughout military bases and federal law enforcement training facilities, Boingo also has long-term contracts to serve facilities at U.S. Marine Corps Installations West, the Department of Homeland Security and the Federal Bureau of Investigation Academy.
