Boingo Wireless announced Monday a roaming agreement with Inter-touch adding 10 countries to Boingo's network. Through the deal, Boingo has access to Inter-touch's hot spot network in Asia, the South Pacific, Europe and the Middle East. A hot spot is a public area where individuals have access to a wireless network allowing them to use resources connected to the network, such as a broadband Internet service. As a wired broadband Internet service provider, Inter-touch plans to add 150 hot spots by the end of the year to the 150 wired and wireless locations it already has available. Boingo has recently been to Asian and European venues through roaming agreements.
