Whether you run a hotel, B&B, cafe, pub, venue or an exhibition centre, guests expect connectivity. An ever growing percentage of hotel guests now say that good WiFi is more important to them than the availability of breakfast.
With the movement of IT services into the cloud over the past few years, business guests expect to be able to access all their files and emails as well as video conference, as if they were in their office, wherever they are.
The uses that leisure travellers have for WiFi have also continued to evolve.
Approximately 21% of UK households subscribed to NetFlix in 2016[i] [ii] and 136 BBC iPlayer receives requests per household per year [iii]. Watching video on demand has become a mainstream activity and one that many guests would prefer to continue whilst away from home.
If you are running a venue guests increasingly want to live stream big events and upload photos to social media as they are happening, not simply upload when they get home.
It is no longer sufficient simply to have “WiFi” in your establishment, your system needs to meet the demands of today’s guests. If the infrastructure in your area limits the internet speeds available to you it is even more important to have a WiFi system that protects this precious resource so that all your guests can use it, whilst still allowing your essential business applications to access the internet as needed.
