AT&T has signed a deal with wireless internet provider Boingo to offer customers access to hotspots all over the world. As part of the agreement, AT&T customers who have signed up to the operator's 300MB or 800M Data Global Add-On packages will be able to connect to Boingo's hotspots in major international airports and enjoy up to 1GB of free data. Boingo customers will now also be able to connect to AT&T’s network of public Wi-Fi access points in the US.

In February, AT&T signed a similar deal with UK Wi-Fi provider The Cloud, allowing customers connect to over 16,000 locations across the UK using the operator’s WiFi International app. Boingo has also worked with Google and Microsoft in the past, offering a free wireless internet to mobile users in the US. While Boingo currently offers over 600,000 global hotspots, AT&T customers will only be able to access Boingo networks in major international airports at launch. However, the operator says the service will "continue to expand throughout 2013."
