Boingo will install DAS and Wi-Fi networks at the arena and theater, as well as a Wi-Fi network and a macrocell in the entertainment district. The company will augment its existing Wi-Fi services at the convention center with a new DAS network.

The Wi-Fi service, which will be ad-supported, will be free for users at all participating venues.

The village board approved a five-year agreement last November with Boingo's sister company, Concourse Communications Group.
