If you’re traveling with your Nintendo 3DS this holiday season, there’s a chance you might be able to score free Wi-Fi in the airport. Boingo and Nintendo have announced a partnership that now offers free Wi-Fi for 3DS owners in 42 select airports around the country.
“As the global leader in airport Wi-Fi, Boingo is an ideal wireless provider for the millions of Nintendo 3DS users who want to stay connected as they travel,” said Zach Fountain, Nintendo of America’s Director of Strategic Partnerships. “Nintendo 3DS is our most connected device ever, and this agreement will allow people to stay entertained while they’re on the go. Whether it’s accessing special offers and content, downloading items from the Nintendo eShop, receiving surprise SpotPass content, or automatically receiving 3D videos from the Nintendo Video service, there have never been more reasons to connect.”
Participating airports include big names such as Chicago O’Hare, New York JFK and Houston George Bush Intercontinental airports. You can check out if your particular airport is supported on Nintendo’s 3DS Hotspot Locator.
