Exchange CONNECT High-Speed Internet Powered by Boingo Broadband Expands to Additional Locations

DALLAS – The Army & Air Force Exchange Service announced today that barracks and dorm residents at 14 additional CONUS installations can now enjoy Exchange CONNECT high-speed Internet and digital TV service.  The award-winning service powered by Boingo Broadband was already operational at 15 Army and Air Force installations across CONUS.

Exchange CONNECT offers instant high-speed Wi-Fi and digital TV service for barracks and dorms residents starting at $29.95 a month.  There are no contracts, hidden fees or cancellation charges, and no installation or special equipment is necessary. In addition, the service is portable and moves with the service member to other Exchange CONNECT locations. Monthly subscribers receive unlimited free access to the Internet via Boingo’s global network of more than 1 million Wi-Fi hotspots worldwide.

“It’s exciting to expand our service footprint to additional locations in CONUS and to bring fast, portable Internet access to so many more service members,” said Air Force Chief Master Sgt. Sean Applegate, the Exchange’s senior enlisted advisor. “It’s so easy to use, very affordable and is designed to meet the needs of today’s military.”

Boingo recently tailored its TV service to better meet the interests and needs of enlisted military with the launch of an attractive new package called Core TV. This package features a targeted tier of HD-quality programming popular with service members, all available to stream on any mobile device for just $19.95 per month.

“We take great pride in providing enlisted men and women with the blazing fast connections that they need to stay in touch with their loved ones as they serve our country, and in delivering their favorite entertainment right to their mobile devices where they’re based,” said Marc Patterson, Boingo Wireless vice president of products. “Our services are tailored to the always on-the-go lifestyle of our troops, and we’re thrilled to introduce them at new CONUS installations.”
