LONDON -- Boingo Wireless, Inc. (NASDAQ: WIFI), the Wi-Fi industry’s leading provider of software and services worldwide, today announced the expansion of its relationship with NTT DOCOMO, INC., Japan’s premier mobile communications company and the second largest mobile operator in Asia. Boingo is now providing Wi-Fi roaming and data offload services for NTT DOCOMO.
The agreement will give NTT DOCOMO access to Boingo’s global network of more than 600,000 hotspots, including hundreds of airports, thousands of hotels and restaurants, and myriad metropolitan hotzones worldwide. NTT DOCOMO will extend the Boingo worldwide network of managed and aggregated hotspots to its customers, providing a seamless global user experience.
