HOTSPOT FOR A FEE OR HOTSPOT FOR FREE?
Many places operate free HotSpot. Such completely open HotSpot can be set up within minutes by using only a broadband internet access and a Wi-Fi router. The free internet service is attractive, but there are several adverse characteristics of this service, such as the number and the time of the access’ can not be limited.
In many places the free internet access has become so popular, that their guests are visiting the coffee shop or the restaurant just for the sake of the free access, thus never actually becoming a customer. More over, the neighbors living in the close surround are overloading the system without ever paying a penny.
A lot of coffee shops and hotels turn to us with this problem. The bandwidth of the access, granted to each customer can not be limited either. Thus if someone uses the free Wi-Fi connection to download vast information, it will make the system unusable for other customers. That's why we developed a solution for these places so they can offer free Wi-Fi access using our hotspot software for Free Wi-Fi access where these problems will not occur.
SO WHAT IS THE SOLUTION?
Fortunately the risks of operating a HotSpot is very small because of its low costs compared to the opportunities it is providing, such as acquiring new customers or keeping the old ones longer.
