iPass looks like an earthlink-like substance (remote access
aggregator) with the added value of being global and having a canned
VPN solution. Their list of US ISP partners is not particularly
impressive. In order for access to be free, you need to have either
an iPass account, or one with a partner ISP - unless there's some
late breaking news, I think the Strib article is misleading - classic
case of bait and switch/easily led journalist.

I'd expect a boingo account to work at the airport after some
period of iPass/boingo haggling.

I have no idea how robust the iPass VPN technology is.
