Boingo Wireless, once known best for its Wi-Fi deployments in airports, is rapidly building up a big resume of stadium customers for Wi-Fi and DAS installations. The latest in a string of recent announcements is a Wi-Fi and DAS deployment deal for the new University of Houston football stadium, a 40,000-seat facility scheduled to open for the 2014 college season.

We’re working on setting up a call with the Houston folks to learn more about their deployment plans but in the meantime you can peruse the Boingo press release as well as the website about the new stadium, which has been under construction for a few years. Like the deployment underway at the Air Force Academy, Boingo’s wireless plans for Houston include a neutral third-party DAS installation as well as Wi-Fi for fans at the stadium as well as for internal stadium operations.

“A world-class facility like the Houston Football Stadium requires a state-of-the-art wireless network on par with major league venues,” said Mack Rhoades, Vice President for Intercollegiate Athletics at the University of Houston, in a prepared statement complete with a bad sports/Wi-Fi metaphor that publicity people just can’t resist. “Boingo brings experience in managing networks for professional and university stadiums and arenas nationwide, and they’ll provide a comprehensive wireless solution that’ll keep Cougars’ alumni, fans and staff connected from kick-off to the final touchdown.”

Like we said, more soon when we speak with the folks from U of H.
