MCI business customers can access Boingo hotspots in the United States, Europe, and Asia-Pacific: The deal is part of MCI’s Remote Access Service, an offering used primarily by traveling business people to access the Internet. The agreement means those customers can access an additional 3,400 hotspots in the U.S. and 1,300 in Europe and Asia-Pacific. MCI’s Remote Access Service already includes 6,200 hotspots. This agreement puts MCI in league with some of the other big consolidators that offer wired and wireless access to traveling business people.
The wording in this press release and the subsequent coverage I’ve seen is really vague about where the hotspots come from, with only a sideways mention of Boingo. But after a couple of quick emails to a helpful press representative at MCI, it sounds to me like this is a standard Boingo deal for MCI.
