CLOUD MANAGED WI-FI HOTSPOTS FOR EVERYONE
Wi-Fi that’s so simple, your gran can use it
Here’s how you can bag yourself decent guest Wi-Fi (in less than 10 minutes):
Step 1 (of 3)
Buy some equipment
You’ll need some equipment if you want to start a Public Wi-Fi Hotspot. Durr. (The equipment is the bit that beams the signal out.) Here are your choices:
1. If you don’t want to spend any money, get a router like this and install our Hotspot Software on it*
Cost: from about free.
2. You’ve got a little cash and you need some help getting started. Buy one of these from the PolkaShop.
Cost: from £76.
3. You’ve got the money, you want the best kit & the most gadgets. Buy one of these from the PolkaShop
Cost: from £330.
If you’ve got a big building, buy more boxes. Easy. *** BYO hardware coming soon ***
Step 2 (of 3)
Get the service (sign-up online)
The Service is the bit that turns your everyday ‘router’ into a Public Wi-Fi Hotspot. You’ll get editable login screens, content filtering and a load of other stuff like reports and graphs. You can even create your own Internet vouchers.
You manage and customise all your Wi-Fi Hotspots from a single website. You’ll get access to this once you have signed up (there’s even a free plan).
There are a number of plans to choose from…
