Boingo expands hotel WLAN coverage

Adds 200 sites; 800 more coming by end 2005

Boingo has added a further 200 sites to its aggregated network of Wi-Fi hotspots courtesy of a tie-in with Arescom, a supplier of in-room Internet and entertainment systems for hotels.

The extra sites will not only be made available to Boingo subscribers but to the company's wholesale partners, it said.

Arescom's in-room service is currently available in 200 US hotels, a figure the company hopes to grow to 1000 by the end of 2005.

Meanwhile, Boingo also said it will work with service provision software supplier Motive to offer software that makes it easier for wholesalers to roll out Wi-Fi and broadband installations by simplifying the end-user PC set-up process. ®
