Why provide free public Wi-Fi?

Improve your customer, employee and guest experiences with fast reliable WiFi

As business owners, we are always trying to give the best experience possible to our clients, and for an ever increasing number of businesses providing free public Wi-Fi is an essential part of their business model because it encourages customers and clients to stay longer, to keep them coming back and to spend more money.

It's a no-brainer:  offering free Wi-Fi helps gain customer loyalty and increase sales

1. You'll enhance your marketing

Our Wi-Fi solutions can allow you to promote your business before customers even sign in.

You can create a custom splash or landing page to attract customers and share real-time offers by delivering information and purchasing opportunities in a fast, convenient way to smartphones, tablets or computers of consumers that are in, or close to, your retail presence.
You can even brand your network with a custom Wi-Fi network name — like "Annie's Shoes Free Wi-Fi."

Customers can do the marketing for you through social media. By letting customers "check in" at your restaurant or share a photo of their favorite dish with their friends, they're spreading the word without any effort on your part.

2. Customers will spend more time at your business

Wi-Fi access helps customers stay productive and connected while they're in your store or at your place of business, so they'll want to stay longer. In fact, as many as 62% of businesses report that customers spend more time in their facility when Wi-Fi is offered.

And when they're there longer, they're more likely encourage their friends and family to spend more time at your business, too.

3. And they'll spend more money

You might worry about customers who use the Wi-Fi without spending a dime, but chances are good they'll end up actually spending more.

Half of small businesses surveyed said that customers spent more money when free Wi-Fi became available.

For retailers, customers can use the Wi-Fi to browse your products and read reviews in real time.

3. You'll gain a competitive edge

Nobody likes slow Wi-Fi and none of us rush back to have another bad experience.  Speed matters.

The reality is, customers have come to expect free Wi-Fi at most places and consciously or not, most of us filter businesses - coffee shops & cafes, bars & restaurants - based on which ones offer free Wi-Fi.
And those that offer fast, free Wi-Fi have a clear advantage over those that don't.

Free Wi-Fi makes your customers' lives easier and improves their perception of your business.
