The company acquired Cloud Nine Media on August 8, 2012 indicating a foray into a sponsored offering that would be free for consumers.
In March 2007, Boingo acquired Concourse Communications Group, which extended Boingo's services into Wi-Fi and cellular DAS networks at airports. On November 10, 2008, Boingo acquired Opti-Fi Networks’ Wi-Fi holdings, adding another 25 airport Wi-Fi networks to its portfolio of managed locations and bringing its total of airport Wi-Fi networks to 55.

Products and Services
Boingo offers six different monthly Wi-Fi access plans, offering worldwide access, or regional access for customers in North and South America, Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA), and Asia Pacific. The company also offers a pay as you go plan for 24 hour access at select locations. Prepaid credits are also available for customers traveling outside their service plan area.
The company also produces a database of available Wi-Fi locations for customers, available on the website and as a downloadable app for PCs, Macs, and Android and iOS devices.
Boingo's subscription model and multiple pricing options has led to some confusion when customers didn't realize they had signed up for recurring service. To address these concerns, Boingo claims to have made their terms and conditions more visible, including adding a more user-friendly cancellation option for customers who sign up for service using an iOS App.
