A baffling press release says Wayport and Concourse Communications will partner to offer hot spot service at Minneapolis-St. Paul airport: Why baffling? Because Concourse launched service there in April 2002. Huh.
In any case, Wayport's involvement means that more networks will have direct access. Previously, iPass was the gatekeeper, instead of a partner, and iPass charges per session; they don't have a flat rate. With Wayport in the picture in Minneapolis and at LaGuardia, Boingo and other network customers will have up to unlimited access under the terms of their monthly plans, or pay the per-session rates if they're on a pay-as-you-go basis.
