About Airport Wi-Fi with Boingo

  • Using Passpoint, Boingo Wi-Fi Hotspots at the LAX airport are free for all T-Mobile customers with eligible devices. It does not count against high-speed data buckets or kick-back credits.
  • Devices capable of Wi-Fi Calling 2.0 can move calls between 4G LTE and Wi-Fi without dropping.
  • T-Mobile fully encrypts all voice, text, and picture message traffic over a VPN connection, giving the same security as using the T-Mobile network.
  • Like other public Wi-Fi hotspots, it is possible for bad actors to observe and capture data used in browsing or app use sessions.
    • We recommend using only fully encrypted sites (HTTPS).
    • Refrain from transmitting sensitive data while connecting to data through public Wi-Fi hotspots.
    • For more information refer to our Privacy & Security Resources for using Wi-Fi networks.
  • Your device may automatically connect to Wi-Fi (if enabled), to enhance the network experience at the airport.
