Boingo Wireless completed its previously announced deal to acquire Concourse Communications. The deal was put together as a way for Boingo to expand its Wi-Fi roaming network and enable the company to act as a service provider.

With the deal completed, Boingo now operates the neutral-host networks installed and maintained by Concourse at three New York City airports, two Chicago airports and other top 100 airports, including Toronto, Ottawa, Detroit, Minneapolis, Oklahoma City and Nashville - with walled-garden access at Atlanta. The company intends to continue to pursue new neutral-host network installations in large-scale facilities.

Boingo says the combined company has no operational overlap, which enabled Boingo to retain almost all Concourse employees. The acquisition combined the neutral hosting operations of Concourse with Boingo's global Wi-Fi network aggregation and wireless Internet access services.

Moving forward, the combined entity will do business under the Boingo brand. Terms of the agreement, announced May 22, were not disclosed.
