Boingo Wireless, in association with Google (News - Alert) Play, will now be able to offer Wi-Fi at a minimum of 4,000 hotspots. Millions of users can avail these Wi-Fi services at no extra cost at these hotspots, which are a part of Boingo’s (News - Alert) Cloud Nine Media platform.
Brand promoters can be in touch with an appealing audience through Wi-Fi sponsorships using the global advertising network, Cloud Nine Media platform.
Wi-Fi services will be offered to users with Android (News - Alert) devices and Windows and Mackintosh laptops. Google Pay will ensure that these services from Boingo will be available at thousands of high-traffic locations in several cities across the country.
Free Boingo Wi-Fi services will be available at 15 main airports like John F. Kennedy at New York, O’Hare at Chicago and Tacoma at Seattle. These services will also be available at Manhattan subway stations, along with thousands of hotels, shopping malls, cafés and recreational areas.
Customers will be able to download content, explore the latest releases and keep themselves amused as the free Boingo Wi-Fi offered by Google Play grants instantaneous access to one’s favorite music, movies, books and apps.
“Google Play is the first to take part in our newly expanded Wi-Fi sponsorship network, which reaches millions of consumers each month with place-based brand engagements,” said Dawn Callahan, vice president of Consumer Marketing at Boingo Wireless (News - Alert). “Sponsorships like this give users the free Wi-Fi they crave, advertisers the consumer interaction they need, and venues the revenue to offset the costs associated with providing a high-bandwidth Wi-Fi experience.”
The offer from Boingo is available until September 30, 2012. Boingo Wireless now provides a global advertising network to brands following the latest acquisition of Cloud Nine Media.
The company’s advertising network, which includes a minimum of 70 major airports, the New York City subway, shopping centers, stadiums and thousands of hotels, restaurants and recreational areas, can be accessible by a minimum of 1.5 billion people each year.
