The Dallas Cowboys are getting a new neighbor, thanks to half a million dollars from the State of Texas.

Los Angeles-based Boingo Wireless plans to open a headquarters at the Star in Frisco, the Dallas Business Journal reported. The wireless company will receive a $517,400 grant from the Texas Enterprise Fund.

The company will create just under 250 new jobs and generate more than $1 million in capital investment, Gov. Greg Abbott said.

“We already have long-established partners and employees in the state, and opening a new office at the Star in Frisco supports our company’s vision and our ability to attract and retain top talent,” Boingo CEO Mike Finley stated. “It will allow us to connect deeply with regional key customers, engage with their communities and understand their unique needs.”

The company, which deploys 5G networks across the country as a “neutral host” partner for public venues, uses a distributed antenna system that provides cellular coverage for multiple networks. Boingo is currently working on the cellular network for the new Omni PGA Frisco Resort.

“This relocation is a major win for our city’s economic development. Innovation is a strategic focus for Frisco,” Frisco Mayor Jeff Cheney stated. “Welcoming Boingo elevates our position among Smart Cities as a leader in 5G technology.”

The Star is a 91-acre campus that holds the headquarters for the Dallas Cowboys NFL team.
