Nintendo has signed a partnership that will provide 3DS owners with free Wi-Fi at major UK airports.
The deal with Boingo Wireless covers terminals at Heathrow, Gatwick and Stansted as well as Southampton, Glasgow, Edinburgh and Aberdeen airports.
The 3DS will automatically connect to Boingo’s Wi-Fi hotspots, allowing players to use the handheld’s internet browser and eShop, and receive SpotPass downloads.
"Boingo is an excellent partner for Nitendo 3DS owners in the United Kingdom due to an extensive airport Wi-Fi network," said Nintendo UK’s assistant general manager and director of marketing Dawn Paine.
Boingo’s SVP of strategy and business development Colby Goff: "Nintendo is a tremendous addition to our list of strategic partners in the UK. Our networks will provide 3DS users with seamless connectivity and fast, reliable service to help them make the most of their travel downtime."
