What do I need to think of before providing WiFi?

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 internet connection.

For a start, you will need to think about:

Internet connection

It is important to have a reliable internet connection with sufficient bandwidth to provide the level of WiFi service that is expected by the public. You also need to consider how you will provide good coverage in all areas.

Hardware and Software Installation

When providing WiFi to the public you need suitable hardware and software to discourage illegal activity and ensure fair usage for all your guests.

Legal Compliance

Not only can poor WiFi provision be the cause of many customer complaints but there are also various laws and regulations that apply to the operation of public WiFi.


Think about maintenance and support for your WiFi – do you already have a member of staff who has the skills to operate your network or would outsourced support be useful?

If your current system is unable to do this then it is time to upgrade.
