There is good news in store for Sprint patrons as they are now given the privilege to access Wi-Fi with relative ease just like what they do with their mobile handsets.
Sprint CTO, Stephen Bye stated that, “With Wi-Fi being the world’s largest wireless ecosystem, we view it as a highly complementary layer to our network.” He added, “By enabling customers to move seamlessly between secure Wi-Fi and cellular, our customers will have a better mobile experience in more locations, all while lowering their cost of data usage.”

The great thing about this awesome feature is that Boingo Wi-Fi hotspots available at the 35 major airports in the United States will not require Sprint subscribers to log in as they can connect without any hassle to the Wi-Fi service without a charge. In addition, the feature will also put smile on the faces of businessmen who are always on-the-go as they can utilize their corporate VPNs with ease without getting anxious about the security.
The free Wi-Fi hotspot availability at the major US airlines will kick-off on April 30, 2015.
The included airports in the promotion whipped out by the tandem of Sprint and Boingo Wi-Fi hotspots are Oakland International Airport, New York’s JFK, Raleigh-Durham International Airport, Memphis International Airport, Wayne John San Diego International Airport, Buffalo Niagara International Airport, Louisville International Airport, Airport, Dallas Love Field, Sacramento International Airport, Newark Liberty International Airport, Nashville International Airport, Stewart International Airport, Boston Logan International Airport, Miami International Airport Chicago Midway, Chicago O’Hare International Airport, and Des Moines International Airport, and the list goes on.

This is a timely move for Sprint as it is locked in a tight battle with T-Mobile for the third largest wireless carrier in the nation.
