-- Trustive, a leading international WiFi hotspot operator, is proud to be able to announce a significant expansion in its WiFi footprint. Recent breakthroughs in Asia and in particular in China, have resulted in the addition of vast numbers of premium WiFi hotspots to Trustive’s global footprint and so, Trustive customers can now enjoy seamless access to 500,000 premium WiFi hotspots in major cities around the world.
The growing popularity of revolutionary new devices (smartphones, tablets, netbooks etc.) has lead to a massive boom in traffic but the smartphone and tablet users’ desire to contain their ‘online lifestyle’ (stream TV, videos or digital radio, follow social networks, use VoIP/IM services etc.) whilst on the move has resulted in a surge in demand for quality WiFi services which enable users to maintain the same high-level of user experience as at home whilst retaining strict control of the associated costs. Trustive is renowned for its commitment to providing travellers with reliable, high-speed WiFi access in premium venues (e.g. airports and travel hubs, hotels, marinas, bars and restaurants etc.) and in order to meet users’ high expectations, Trustive constantly strives to improve and expand its WiFi footprint; adding new premium locations, monitoring performance and usage at existing hotspots and, if required, removing any hotspots that fail to meet Trustive’s strict standards. And all of this, in order to ensure that Trustive’s WiFi network is truly world-class in terms of coverage and quality.
A crucial aspect of providing a high quality WiFi access service has to be ease of access. Travellers are no longer content to navigate a hotspot’s web page (often in a foreign language) in order to try to find out how they can log in. Seamless access is the key and travellers benefit from seamless access to Trustive’s international WiFi network thanks to a range of free connection software for laptops (Windows, Macs and Netbooks) and “Trustive WiFi” apps for smartphones and tablets (Android and iPhones/iPads)
, which detect and provide seamless connectivity to Trustive WiFi hotspots. Furthermore, international operators are also integrating elements of Trustive’s premium WiFi footprint into their own offering, thereby giving customers access to Trustive WiFi in premium venues (where 3G networks are often heavily congested) via their own existing smart clients.
Christian VanGhelder, managing director of Trustive, confirmed that “at Trustive, we are very proud to have achieved this milestone figure of 500,000 premium hotspots. This achievement is the result of lengthy negotiations with hotspot operators across the world in order to be able to provide Trustive customers with a low-cost but high quality hotspot service in premium locations such as at international airports and other travel hubs, in key hotel chains across the world, in bars, restaurants, marinas and other leisure venues as well as at business focussed venues like convention centres and offices. Now more than ever, customers who download our free software for their smartphones, tablets and/or laptops can enjoy seamless detection and connectivity to Trustive’s comprehensive WiFi network wherever they may be. Footprint, quality, cost and ease of access remain our top priorities.”
