Software and service provider Boingo Wireless today revealed a deal with AT&T allowing global roaming data subscribers to use Boingo's network of Wi-Fi hotspots globally. By way of the AT&T Wi-Fi Internataional App, users can locate and sign into the network operated by Boingo's subsidiary, Concourse Communications Group. The AT&T Wi-Fi International app is available to AT&T customers who subscribe to either the 300MB or 800MB AT&T Data Global Add-On package. Pay-as-you-go or other data cap packages are ineligible for the offering.

The total Boingo managed and operated network reaches more than 1.5 billion people worldwide annually. Boingo Wi-Fi hotspots at major international airports are available to AT&T customers today, with service continuing to expand throughout 2013. As part of the agreement, Boingo customers inside the United States are able to access AT&T's network of Wi-Fi hotspots, located at airports, restaurants, sporting arenas, and retail locations.

Both AT&T and Boingo Wireless are Wireless Broadband Alliance (WBA) member companies with executives serving on the WBA Board of Directors. The companies also are currently participating in the WBA's Next Generation Hotspot trials for seamless Wi-Fi roaming.
