T-Mobile is providing more options for connectivity to airport Wi-Fi, starting with Boingo hotspots at the LAX airport (in Los Angeles, CA). And the best part - it's FREE for T-Mobile customers.


Connect to Boingo hotspot

  • You can connect at Boingo hotspots under the network name “Boingo Hotspot” in your device’s Wi-Fi settings or through a browser when connected to Boingo (a page will launch).
  • For more help with Boingo hotspots, see FAQs - Boingo Wireless, Inc.


Check if my device is eligible

Select T-Mobile devices can access the Premium Wi-Fi network at LAX. Here's the device requirements:

  • Passpoint capable: Most devices support Passpoint. Check out the steps to enable/disable below - if the option is there, Passpoint supported!
  • Wi-Fi 802.11 a/c (5 GHz) capable: Not sure? Go to the Devices  page > find your device > click the Tech Specs page > scroll to the Connectivity section.


Enable or disable Passpoint


  1. Make sure that the device has iOS 10 or higher and carrier settings 28.3 or higher
  2. Turn on Wi-Fi: If Wi-Fi is on, then so is Passpoint (it's built into W-Fi). To disable passpoint, turn off Wi-Fi.


  1. Turn on Wi-Fi on your device > go to the device Wi-Fi menu > then the Advanced or More section (depending on device).
  2. Select the Passpoint or Hotspot 2.0 check box to turn on. To turn off, clear the check box.




Privacy & security

  • 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.
