Deliver connectivity beyond residential limitations with WiFi On the Go

Shape V2

Originally limited to users’ homes or workplaces, WiFi is now used everywhere. With a significant number of customers accessing WiFi networks in a public place to stay connected when they’re out and about, service providers reap the benefits of satisfying this demand.

 

By seizing the opportunity to deploy a WiFi network as a complement to traditional access propositions, you will be reaching beyond residential limitations. Providing your customers with highly valued WiFi connectivity on the go has a proven direct benefit on churn and loyalty.


WiFi On the Go allows convergent telco operators to complement their access propositions and take full control of customer activity everywhere. For fixed operators, it becomes an unmatched tool to extend their services outside the home, and trigger convergence, reducing the gap with mobile players.
