Time Warner Cable and Boingo Provide Expanded Customer Wi-Fi Access in the U.S.

Time Warner Cable (TWC) and Boingo Wireless have launched bilateral roaming access for their customers, giving TWC Internet customers access to more than 100 premium Boingo locations, including 23 of the highest trafficked airports in the U.S., while Boingo customers gain access to over 35,000 TWC WiFi® Hotspots in cities such as New York, Los Angeles, Austin and Charlotte.

The two companies – both members of the Wireless Broadband Alliance participating in the Next Generation Hotspot trials – also will complete a Passpoint-enabled integration later this year so customers can connect seamlessly and securely with their Passpoint-certified devices and account credentials.

Boingo Wireless Wi-Fi Access

Boingo customers can now access nearly 35,000 TWC WiFi Hotspots in major cities across the United States using their existing account, in addition to the more than 1,000,000 hotspots from over 140 global network partners. Boingo Unlimited subscribers – who receive unlimited Wi-Fi access across North and South America – can take advantage of the Time Warner Cable hotspots in Los Angeles, New York City, Austin, Kansas City, Charlotte, Myrtle Beach and Hawaii.

“Our agreement with Time Warner Cable greatly enhances our network of partner hotspots in the U.S., providing added value for our Boingo Unlimited and Boingo Mobile customers. We’re thrilled to extend access to the TWC WiFi Hotspots to our customers in cities from coast to coast,” said Nick Hulse, President, Boingo Wireless.

Boingo customers must use the Boingo Wi-Finder app to connect to Time Warner Cable hotspots, and monthly subscribers will be able to use a Passpoint profile to enable automatic, secure access once the Passpoint integration is complete later this year.

TWC WiFi Network Expansion

TWC Internet customers now can enjoy free Wi-Fi in more than 20 major U.S. airports, several New York City subway stations and popular locations ranging from malls to restaurants as the result of the Boingo partnership. The partnership expands TWC’s network to more than 100 new locations using the Boingo Hotspot network name (SSID).

“Free Wi-Fi adds tremendous value to our Internet service. Now, our customers can stay connected when they travel with free access to Boingo Hotspots in major airports and other popular locations around the country,” said Rob Cerbone, VP of Mobile Products for Time Warner Cable.

Among the 100+ Boingo Hotspot locations now available free to qualified TWC Internet customers are:

  • 23 airports including La Guardia, JFK and Newark in New York, Chicago O’Hare International, Raleigh-Durham International, Dallas Love Field, Austin Bergstrom, Denver International, Memphis International and Nashville International
  • 36 NYC subway station platforms and several Washington State Ferries
  • Popular venues such as Soldier Field in Chicago and various shopping centers and restaurants

To access, TWC customers will select “Boingo Hotspot” from the list of available networks, and from the Boingo sign-in page, select Time Warner Cable from a list of Internet Service Providers. They then will log-in using their TWC ID and password or their Time Warner Cable email and password.

The Boingo Hotspots are included on the TWC WiFi coverage map at twc.com/wificoverage and soon will be added to the TWC WiFi Finder app.

Time Warner Cable’s WiFi network is available free to customers with Standard Internet or above and to all Business Class Internet customers. The network currently offers over 35,000 TWC WiFi® Hotspots with significant coverage in Southern California, New York City, Kansas City, Charlotte, Myrtle Beach, Austin and Hawaii. TWC Internet customers also have free access to more than 250,000 hotspots in major cities across the U.S. through the Cable WiFi® network.

Internet-of-Things discussions can end up either going down the consumer gadget rabbit hole or focused on the sort of data logging that industrial manufacturers have been doing forever. However, in fact, companies today are already using IoT data both to optimize their operational technology and to improve the experience of customer interactions in novel ways. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Gordon Haff, Red Hat Technology Evangelist, shared examples from a wide range of industries – including en...
In IT, we sometimes coin terms for things before we know exactly what they are and how they’ll be used. The resulting terms may capture a common set of aspirations and goals – as “cloud” did broadly for on-demand, self-service, and flexible computing. But such a term can also lump together diverse and even competing practices, technologies, and priorities to the point where important distinctions are glossed over and lost.
In his session at @DevOpsSummit at 20th Cloud Expo, Kelly Looney, director of DevOps consulting for Skytap, showed how an incremental approach to introducing containers into complex, distributed applications results in modernization with less risk and more reward.

Attendees learned how up-front planning allows for a clean sep...
Detecting internal user threats in the Big Data eco-system is challenging and cumbersome. Many organizations monitor internal usage of the Big Data eco-system using a set of alerts. This is not a scalable process given the increase in the number of alerts with the accelerating growth in data volume and user base. Organizations are increasingly leveraging machine learning to monitor only those data elements that are sensitive and critical, autonomously establish monitoring policies, and to detect...
Most companies are adopting or evaluating container technology - Docker in particular - to speed up application deployment, drive down cost, ease management and make application delivery more flexible overall. As with most new architectures, this dream takes a lot of work to become a reality. Even when you do get your application componentized enough and packaged properly, there are still challenges for DevOps teams to making the shift to continuous delivery and achieving that reduction in cost ...
Enterprise architects are increasingly adopting multi-cloud strategies as they seek to utilize existing data center assets, leverage the advantages of cloud computing and avoid cloud vendor lock-in. This requires a globally aware traffic management strategy that can monitor infrastructure health across data centers and end-user experience globally, while responding to control changes and system specification at the speed of today’s DevOps teams. In his session at 20th Cloud Expo, Josh Gray, Chie...
To get the most out of their data, successful companies are not focusing on queries and data lakes, they are actively integrating analytics into their operations with a data-first application development approach.

Jack Norris reviews best practices to show how companies develop, deploy, and dynamically update these applications and how this data-first...

You know you need the cloud, but you’re hesitant to simply dump everything at Amazon since you know that not all workloads are suitable for cloud. You know that you want the kind of ease of use and scalability that you get with public cloud, but your applications are architected in a way that makes the public cloud a non-starter. You’re looking at private cloud solutions based on hyperconverged infrastructure, but you’re concerned with the limits inherent in those technologies.
