Public Wi-Fi Hotspots make it possible to offer low cost or free Internet access, possibly subsidized by advertising or a corporate entity.
Why does your venue need our Wi-Fi Hotspot?
South Africa has a low Internet penetration, offering public Wi-Fi helps bridge the digital divide and offers a medium for digital marketing.
How does a WISH Wi-Fi Hotspot solve this problem?
WISH can limit the amount of data allocated, collect user details, and display advertising to the user. It is also possible to have certain content always be accessible for free, and promote certain causes or links. Users can be asked to register, it is possible to sell data for cash, or reward users with data. Example, bring in recycling and receive Wi-Fi data.
What do these WISH Wi-Fi Hotspots offer?
- We manage and support your Wi-Fi Hotspot for you. All support issues are directed at us.
- Online payment portals through which guests can buy additional data if needed, the revenue is paid over to you, less the payment gateway fee.
- We source the Internet connection through our partner networks
- Customizable hotspot splash page
- Option to capture customer information before they get their allocated data
- Ability to place an advertisement on the splash page, or redirect users to a link. Generate advertising revenue.
- Ability to allocate fixed amounts of bandwidth per device per day, e.g., give each guest device 1 gigabyte of data per day
How does it work?
The customer connects to the Wi-Fi access point and gets redirected to a hotspot landing page. On the landing page the customer can view information regarding the hotspot or some promotion and could be required to complete some details to gain internet access (if data capturing is activated). It is possible to present surveys to the user, do online promotions, or redirect the user to a specific website. If the daily data limit set is reached, the user’s access will be revoked and they will be prevented from further Internet access. If the option to buy more data is enabled, then a user can buy extra data cash from a reseller in the area to continue browsing.
