Infographic: UK Mobile Data Roaming Charges-3G Versus Wi-Fi

Wi-Fi Shown to be Most Cost-effective Option for Meeting Mobile Data Needs When Traveling

LONDON, ENGLAND--(Marketwire - Sept. 27, 2011) -

Editors Note: There is a photo associated with this press release.

WHAT: Full-color infographic outlining the costs associated with standard smartphone activities when roaming outside of your home mobile network, and comparing those costs to the same activities performed over Wi-Fi when using one of Boingo Wireless' regional Wi-Fi access plans.
WHY: More and more people are returning home from vacation and receiving a mobile bill of hundreds or thousands of dollars due to the high cost of cellular data roaming. Those people can radically cut their data costs by signing up for a Wi-Fi access plan while on the road.
Everyday activities such as checking work email, uploading holiday photos onto Facebook, downloading a game or using Google Maps to find their way around, can involve surprisingly large amounts of data being downloaded to or uploaded from their device – which may not be known until a large mobile bill is delivered after they return home.
WHO: Boingo Wireless, the Wi-Fi industry's leading provider of software and services worldwide, understands that Internet connectivity is an essential part of everyone's lives, and no one should have to endure price gouging based on exorbitant data roaming costs nor should they have to severely restrict their online activities simply because they're traveling. Global Wi-Fi access provides a cost-effective solution that enables people to remain connected when they travel outside their home mobile network.
