The Raleigh-Durham Airport Authority has selected Boingo Wireless to manage and operate tiered Wi-Fi services throughout Raleigh-Durham International Airport (RDU).

Boingo’s hybrid network approach includes tiered Wi-Fi services to meet the diverse needs of Raleigh-Durham’s domestic and international travelers. Tiered services include a complimentary Wi-Fi service option for casual users; Boingo will also offer premium Wi-Fi services, allowing business travelers and power users to engage in data intensive activities such as accessing corporate VPNs, downloading large files and streaming high definition video.

Zack Sterngold (Vice president, Airport Business Development, Boingo Wireless): For more than a decade, Boingo has offered innovative Wi-Fi solutions at high-traffic consumer venues such as airports, shopping malls and stadiums, and we understand the complexity of managing growing networks in high demand.
