Earthlink Offers WiFi Via Boingo
from the not-much-of-a-surprise-there dept
Earthlink has become the first major ISP to start WiFi access at various hotspots. Of course, they’re simply reselling Boingo’s service (which isn’t much of a surprise, since they’re both founded by Sky Dayton). Of course, Boingo is really reselling other’s services like MobileStar’s – so it seems like quite a convoluted system. It’s interesting, though, to see how Boingo is expanding their business model to simply offer their services to ISPs. I would bet that more and more ISPs will start offering similar services – though, it would be nice if they had a single price for both, instead of separate (expensive) prices for WiFi access.
