Boingo goes Mobile! Includes FREE browsing

If you're a frequent flyer then you may have noticed a change in Boingo hotspots on your mobile device. Boingo has just added a mobile version of their authentication page (loads a lot faster and without the annoying Flash splash screen). But the best thing is that they now offer mobile users a chance to browse for free after watching a 15 second ad.

10/31/2008 Update: This offer has now expired so there's no more free Internet but you still get a mobile version of Boingo.

Here's the old un-optimized Boingo page:


So here's how the new Boingo page works:


After watching 15 seconds of ads you get 15 minutes of free web surfing:


Unfortunately this only applies to mobile devices so laptops still see the standard screen. Let me know if this offer changes by leaving a comment.

Thanks for noticing.

It's part of the rollout and continuation of a current promotional program for iPhones and Nokia devices at certain airports, including LaGuardia.

It's a great way for people to learn more about Boingo Mobile.
