"Boingo is a scam!"1.5 starson by jennifuz19
Pros: when I WANTED to use the service, it worked fine
Cons: everytime you turn your laptop on near a boingo service, they charge your credit card!
Summary: I had originally signed up for Boingo at an airport on a long layover with no free wireless internet. It was $7.95 for a 24 hour period and I had to use my credit card to sign up. Well, the next time I was at an airport, I turned my computer on and in searching for wireless connections, it automatically defaulted to boingo and with no confirmation, or "are you sure you want to proceed" kind of thing, just charged my credit card.. and again on my way home, so I had a charge for $15.90 that was never authorized by me. I called the company after I got the charge and they wouldnt remove it, of course. If I knew I had to pay for it, I would have not accepted it, I just thought my laptop had a free wireless internet connection, as some airports do offer this service. The service worked fine for the most part, the one time I KNEW I was using it, it had logged out on me once, but I was able to sign right back in and get back online. If you use this program, make sure you delete it after you are finished or they'll charge your credit card over and over!
