    Boingo Wireless, the leading DAS and Wi-Fi provider that serves consumers, carriers and advertisers worldwide, today announced an expanded network access agreement with GOWEX, a market leader in “Wireless Smart Cities®” and smart Wi-Fi in public transportation.

    Boingo customers now have access to 1,400 additional GOWEX hotspots in more than 50 cities throughout Spain, France, Ireland and Belgium, including the company’s “Wi-Fi Cities” municipal hotzones in Paris, Marseille, Dublin, and major cities in Spain including Barcelona, Seville, Malaga and Bilbao. Boingo users will also have access to GOWEX wireless services on popular public transportation routes, including on-board Wi-Fi on more than 40 buses in Barcelona, and in more than 50 metro and railway stations in Paris.

    “Our expanding roster of international roaming partners, like GOWEX, keep our customers connected on every step of their journey in some of Europe’s greatest cities - from the airport, to their hotel, to the metro station or tour bus,” said Bjorn Thorngren, vice president of international markets for Boingo Wireless. “Our expanded relationship with GOWEX will ensure that our users won’t miss an email or an update whether they’re in Barcelona or changing Paris Metro trains at the Station de Bastille.”

    “Boingo customers have accessed our ‘Wi-Fi Cities’ hotzones in Madrid for years, and we’re pleased to extend our expanded municipal hotzones and ‘smart transport’ networks in destination cities across Europe to even more Boingo customers,” said Jenaro García, CEO of GOWEX.
