[Starbucks] Unlimited wifi access through Boingo+partner hotspots $10/month
$10/month (can be canceled any time).
Unlimited North American access to their network of wifi hotspots (which is mostly partner hotspots, not just those labeled Boingo).
You can use up to 2 devices per plan (not sure how this is monitored or if it is). You can use a smartphone and a laptop. For the smartphone you sign-in through your browser (e.g. I couldn't sign on through the Boingo iPhone app because it only works for the mobile wi-fi plan, but I could connect when I started at Safari and the startup web page was Boingo's login page).
There is a different ($8) package for smartphones only.
Enjoy UNLIMITED Wi-Fi access throughout the Americas for a low monthly rate of $9.95. Get connected to:
* Airport Wi-Fi in hundreds of airports!
* Hotel Wi-Fi, including participating Marriott®
and Sheraton® locations.
* Starbucks® Wi-Fi
* McDonald’s® Wi-Fi
This service used to be about $30, but at this price it feels like a steal. I'll post an update after my travels (4 airports + a Marriott)
I originally just posted this in Travel (and that is probably still what it shines for), but the more I looked at it I thought it merited posting in Hot Deals for people who are just "on the road" a lot. In Canada it appears that this gives access through all Starbucks wifi (Bell customers already get this for free, $4/2 hours otherwise) and UPS Store wifi, plus a sprinkling of others. Their location finding tool is HERE.
One of the other interesting ones included is the Toronto OneZone mesh (downtown Toronto) which charges $5/hr, or $10/day, or $30/month. It appears you can get a month through Boingo for $10!
Probably still mostly of interest for people who are on the road (unless you live over a Starbucks or UPS Store!).
Updates as promised:
Update from the Buffalo airport: Works great
Update from the Detroit airport: Works great.
