Sprint has been doing a lot behind the scenes lately, as we’ve seen them purchase Radioshack store fronts, partner with Google in Project Fi, and more. Today comes the news that Sprint has now partnered with Boingo, the airport Wi-Fi company.
Sprint customers now have unlimited free access to Boingo Wi-Fi networks around the nation. Customers don’t need to pay anything extra, and Sprint says you can seamlessly switch from the Sprint network to Boingo Wi-Fi networks (sounds a lot like what Project Fi does). Furthermore, users will soon be able to connect to Boingo’s Passpoint Secure networks, which provide a WPA2 encryption, so others can’t just get into your phone while being on the same network.
Those who travel a lot will definitely benefit from this, but otherwise you won’t get much use from it. Still, its nice to see Sprint is trying its hardest to keep its head above the water as the other three big carriers continue to grow.
