Fiberlink, the remote access aggretator, said it will use Boingo’s SDK (software developer's kit) to build a client: The client will provide Wi-Fi and in the future 3G sniffing, connection and authentication. The deal also means that Fiberlink customers can access the hotspots that are part of Boingo’s service.
In another deal from an aggregator, Infonet, which caters to large multinationals, will use hot spots that are part of GRIC's network. GRIC is an aggregator that appeals to distributed enterprises.
I'm seeing an increasing number of announcements about aggregators like Fiberlink, iPass, and GRIC including as many hot spots into their networks as they can and making it easier for their customers to find and use the networks. They are aggressively trying to lock their customers into relying on them for Wi-Fi access before tons of roaming agreements happen between Wi-Fi operators, making the aggregators irrelevant. It will be interesting to watch what happens to these guys as the market evolves.
