What kinds of technical challenges do you and your team face?

Boingoites are faced with challenges every day, but there is nothing sweeter than overcoming a difficult task, together. The perfect example is launching Project Jake. We completely redesigned our UI for Boingo Broadband customers. It launched to much success & a boost in sales and is evidence of the awesome team work and collaboration at Boingo.

Lisa

Senior Marketing Manager

What is your vision for the company?

It’s all about 5G! Our team is currently working on technologies that will be crucial to power 5G. I recently led our team of engineers to a significant milestone when Boingo rolled out the first private LTE network on the 3.5 GHz Citizens Broadband Radio Service (CBRS) band at a major commercial venue—Dallas Love Field Airport.
