Rahal Letterman Lanigan Racing (RLL) and Boingo Wireless, the leading
DAS and Wi-Fi provider that serves consumers, carriers and advertisers
worldwide, today announced that Boingo has become an Official Team
Partner of the Verizon IndyCar Series program.
Boingo has launched an exclusive discount program for enlisted members
of the Army National Guard, also a Rahal Letterman Lanigan sponsor.
National Guard soldiers can sign up for Boingo’s Unlimited plan for
$7.95 per month, a discount of 20%. The Boingo Unlimited plan – Boingo’s
most popular regional plan – provides unlimited access to thousands of
hotspots in North and South America on any two devices.
“We’re very pleased to welcome Boingo to our team,” said Bobby Rahal,
co-owner of Rahal Letterman Lanigan Racing with “Late Show with David
Letterman” host David Letterman and Mi-Jack co-owner Mike Lanigan. “They
are a leader in their industry and a brand that is well-known. Their
National Guard discount program provides a great benefit to soldiers as
they travel the nation, and we hope this is the first of many
business-to-business opportunities we can assist with. No matter where
you go, you see Boingo everywhere and we are proud to extend that reach
through our Indy car program.”
“We’re proud to sponsor the great Rahal team, and to have another
opportunity to serve the members of our armed forces through our new
National Guard preferred rate program,” said Nick Hulse, President,
Boingo Wireless. “We have the honor of serving members of the Army, Air
Force and U.S. Marines on bases worldwide through our Boingo Broadband
and IPTV products, and look forward to keeping National Guard soldiers
connected as they travel the continent.”
Graham Rahal, driver of the No. 15 National Guard Honda Indy car for
RLL, challenged for the win at the previous street course event held at
Detroit’s Belle Isle course and earned a season-best second place finish
in Dual 1 at the Chevrolet Indy Dual in Detroit. Rahal is looking
forward to the next challenge – the Shell and Pennzoil Grand Prix of
Houston doubleheaders on the streets around NRG Park (formerly “Reliant
Park”) June 28 and 29.
