Pronto, Boingo Simpatico
SANTA MONICA and EMERYVILLE, Calif. -- Boingo Wireless(TM) and Pronto Networks today announced that all Wi-Fi hot spots operated by Pronto Networks are now Boingo-Ready, allowing Boingo users to seamlessly roam onto the networks managed by Pronto's service provider partners. Pronto Networks' partners include Internet kiosk providers, such as EndPoint Communications, that will add Wi-Fi to their existing kiosks and all new installations, and Hotspot Operators, such as AccessAnyplace, Celerity Wireless, Deep Blue Wireless, Fortifire, Global Touch, iDockUSA, Infra Tech Network Communications, WebcastUS, Wireless Evangelists, and Wireless Hotspot, that will deploy more than 400 public hot spots over the next year. "Pronto's plug-n-play design simplifies installation for hot spot operators and will accelerate the deployment of Boingo-Ready hot spots, providing more locations where our members can access the Internet and enjoy productivity on a broadband connection," said Dave Hagan, president of Boingo Wireless. "We anticipate that Pronto will quickly add Boingo-Ready locations since they run the back-office operations for multiple hot spot operators." Boingo's Hagan and Pronto's Singh will both be speaking at the Wireless Hot Spots Conference in San Jose on September 23 - 24, 2002. More information can be found at http://www.scievents.com/whs/.
