- Mobile Operators Throttle & Cap Data Plans Are Driving Customers to Wi-Fi -
With widespread super-fast broadband still a long way from reality, Highland Wi-Fi who installs, manages and maintains the UK's Fastest Public Wi-Fi network, today announced the launch of their latest WiFi location in John O' Groats, Scotland.
"Roaming charges and new data plan limits can make connecting when travelling a costly proposition, not to mention the lack of adequate 3G and 4G coverage across most of the country" said Calum MacDonald, CTO at Highland Wi-Fi.
"Our network gives users additional flexibility and allow our platform service partners to offer their subscribers access to a rapidly expanding Wi-Fi network in diverse business and tourist hubs UK-wide," continued MacDonald.
Highland Wi-Fi operate indoor and outdoor Wi-Fi with the signal covering towns and villages, and has 32 Wi-Fi hotspots across the country. John O'Groats is well known for charity challenges and with people wanting minute-by-minute updates, Wi-Fi connectivity is crucial and now anybody starting or completing the gruelling Lands End to John O' Groats marathon, can let the world know their achievements at super-fast speeds by connecting to the Highland Wi-Fi network.
The business, which has grown from 2 sites in 2009 to 32 sites today, offers customers access to unlimited internet on smartphones, laptops and tablets. It will also enable to people with 3G mobile data plans to save on their monthly allowances by switching to faster Wi-Fi.
"With users expecting similar browsing speeds when they are out and about to what they get at home, we exceed that expectation, as our network is quicker than most UK household Wi-Fi, " said MacDonald.
Wi-Fi availability can be a deal breaker for business travellers, but it is becoming increasingly important for holidaymakers, which is why so many campsites, hostels and hotels have turned to Highland Wi-Fi to install a wireless hotspot for their guests. Given the current staycation trend, holidaymakers will be seeking web access for finding out about local attractions, booking restaurants, travel news and weather, Â not to mention being able to keep the kids quiet and socially networked.
Highland Wi-Fi will have hosted over 100,000 user sessions on their Wi-Fi network by the end of this year, a trend that will continue to rise as users switch off from the mobile operators for their data usage.
