Late last month, prmadm succinctly summed up the Boingo bull case: "More WIFI enabled devices equals more subscribers and partners, which equal more revenue."
Currently, Boingo even trades at a cheapish price-to-sales ratio of 0.7. That represents a discount to much larger competitors like AT&T (1.5), Cablevision (1.1), and Comcast (1.7).
CAPS member TMFIPO2011 expands on the long-term opportunity:
**Mobile data usage is on track to increase more than 20 times between now and 2015, yet so-called wireless "4G" networks are progressing too slowly to meet demand.
**Boingo is filling the gap with a global high-speed Wi-Fi network -- and is growing fast as a result.
**Wall Street doesn't yet believe in the opportunity, as reflected in an unjustified 20% sell-off since the company's May IPO.
