WiFi is growing and Earthlink helps

News.com is reporting that EarthLink on Monday announced a deal with Boingo Wireless designed to help the ISP expand its Wi-Fi service offering.
The multiyear agreement will let the 5 million subscribers of EarthLink’s TotalAccess service roam into Boingo Wi-Fi networks, the companies said. Additionally, EarthLink will integrate Boingo software into its own offering, to allow Wi-Fi access and connection management to its subscribers. The deal builds on a partnership the two companies entered into in 2002

It’s one thing to have WiFi access in the office, or with a particular service provider, but Boingo connects otherwise unconnected wireless networks to enable the end user access to a larger range of WiFi netwokrs.
