Forest City Ratner selects Boingo Wireless for Wi-Fi deployment
LOS ANGELES — Boingo Wireless announced a new agreement with Forest City Ratner Cos. to provide free-to-shopper wi-fi at the company’s high-traffic shopping center the Atlantic Terminal Mall, in Brooklyn, N.Y., that serves more than 40 million shoppers and commuters annually.
Boingo will manage and operate a centralized wi-fi network that provides consumers fast, reliable wi-fi on their smartphones, tablets and laptops as they shop, relax or get ready for their commute from Atlantic Terminal, one of New York City’s busiest mass transit hubs. Boingo wi-fi will be offered as a customer amenity, and will be available in fall 2013.
“Boingo has extensive experience in operating high-quality wi-fi services at leading shopping destinations nationwide, and carrier-grade networks in high-density locations like some of the world’s busiest airports. Boingo is an ideal fit for the Atlantic Terminal Mall, which includes not only some of the region’s best performing retailers, but which also sits at Brooklyn’s key hub for subway, Long Island Rail Road (LIRR) and bus service,” said Kathryn Welch, EVP of retail for FCRC.
