Boingo offers wifi at Beijing Capital International Airport

24 May 2012

US-based Boingo Wireless has rolled out a new wifi internet access alternative at Beijing Capital International Airport.

The service, which will appear as “Boingo_Hotspot” on wifi-enabled gadgets, is unfortunately not free. Instead, users can purchase the Boingo Asia-Pacific plan from its website, which costs US$11.95 per month and offers unlimited wifi access for up to two devices at any one of Boingo’s 150,000 hotspots around Asia. Other hotspots can be found in 26 countries, including India, Indonesia, Malaysia, Singapore, Taiwan and Thailand.

Boingo has also developed an app called Boingo Wi-Finder, which will notify users when they are in any of the Boingo-controlled hotspots. 

At present, Beijing Capital International Airport offers free wifi internet access for passengers with Chinese phone numbers registered with China Telecom, who can log on with special passwords obtained from the service provider. Also, there are 45 self-service kiosks where passengers can scan passports and ID cards to obtain a password to access the internet.
