Boingo adds 4000 Wi-Fi hotspots in Sweden

Boingo Wireless is adding close to 4,000 locations in Sweden. These Wi-Fi hotspots belong to TeliaSonera and they include convenience stores and gas stations such as 7-Eleven, Bilisten, OKQ8, Pressbyrån and Statoil; hotels such as Best Western, Clarion Choice, Ibis Hotels and Quality Hotels; grocery stores and supermarkets, including City Gross, Coop Sweden, Hemköp and ICA; camping sites, including First Camp; retailers, like Wayne’s Coffee; as well as airports, marinas, train stations, and Surfzon Wi-Fi hotspots.

“Boingo continues to expand its network, and the addition of TeliaSonera Homerun is a critical addition to our Nordic and European footprint,” said Luis Serrano, vice president of network strategy for Boingo Wireless. “TeliaSonera Homerun’s comprehensive network is perfect for our Boingo Mobile customers who look for a high-speed solution for their Wi-Fi enabled smartphones to get directions, music, data and more while traveling.”

As part of the agreement, TeliaSonera Homerun customers will be able to access Boingo’s owned and operated network, which includes the top airports in the United States, Canada and the United Kingdom, as well as the WSDOT Ferries Division Wi-Fi network in the Seattle, Washington area.
