Boingo Wireless (WIFI) and the Competitive Carriers Association (CCA) revealed a strategic partnership on September 27, 2012. The two partners will start offering Wi-Fi offload solutions to CCA carrier members.
The monthly average for cellular data usage this 2012 runs from 500MB to 800 MB. The total data usage jumps up to a monthly average of 4GB when Wi-Fi usage is added. And experts expect mobile data traffic to keep increasing exponentially.
In order to help CCA carriers meet this growing demand, Boingo will offer white-labeled Wi-Fi solutions. Alleviating the strains on mobile networks will allow customers to hook up to Boingo’s global coverage using a single account.
Steven K. Berry, the President and CEO of CCA, expressed his pleasure about CCA’s Wi-Fi offload service partnership with Boingo. According to Mr. Berry, Wi-Fi networks will offload 22 percent of mobile traffic by 2016. He encourages CCA members to support the joint Wi-Fi offload program to better satisfy the constantly increasing demand that business and individual customers place on wireless networks.
Luis Serrano, Senior Vice President of Business and Corporate Development for Boingo Wireless, vouched a similar stance. He stated that Wi-Fi offload was a cost-effective way for competitive carriers to better manage network capacity constraints and control data roaming expenses.
A blanket agreement would provide Wi-Fi offload services to all CCA carrier members, and the combined commitments would help keep costs down.
CCA is the leading association of competitive wireless providers and stakeholders in the United States. Its partner, Boingo Wireless, Inc. (WIFI,) is the number one provider of Wi-Fi software and services. Its more than 500,000 hotspots worldwide allows people to access Wi-Fi networks with their laptops and mobile devices.
