Whether you are running a cafe, serviced apartments or a 5 star hotel, there are some considerations to make before you allow the public access to your WiFi. Providing Public WiFi – what do I need?
For a start, you will need to think about:
A suitable Internet connection for Public WiFi
It is vital to have a reliable internet connection with sufficient bandwidth for all your guests. Poor or slow guest WiFi is the cause of many complaints. Plan for excellent WiFi coverage for all required areas; indoors and outdoors.
WiFi Hardware and Software
When providing Public WiFi you will need suitable hardware and software to discourage illegal activity and ensure fair usage for all your guests.
If your WiFi system can’t block peer-to peer traffic then it is time to upgrade!
WiFi Legal Compliance
There are various laws and regulations that apply to the operation of public WiFi. GDPR is just one example. Fines can be hefty if you don’t comply.
Support for your guest WiFi
Think about maintenance and support for your WiFi. Can your staff operate your WiFi network and ensure legal compliance? Would outsourced WiFi support be useful?
