Frequently Asked Questions

Do I need a new router or special hardware for Social Wi-Fi? Do you supply the hardware?

Yes.

We will provide a Social Wi-Fi access point for your location.

Your IT provider can install it onsite.

Your router is pre-configured and pre-tested. All you really have to do is plug it in, similar to how you plug in your internet modem.

I already have a Wi-Fi router, why do I need a new device?

Your content goes here. Edit or remove this text inline or in the module Content settings. You can also style every aspect of this content in the module Design settings and even apply custom CSS to this text in the module Advanced settings.

What if I have customers that are not on social media?

No problem. Your customers will have the ability to log in using either their email address or SMS, alongside additional information, such as name, birthday, and gender.

What if I am already in a Wi-Fi contract with another provider?

At times, we run promotions where we will credit you the amount of the cancellation fee. This exception is studied on a case by case basis, and typically requires and annual subscription

What is the minimum internet speed for Social Wi-Fi?

We recommend a minimum of 5MB down and 5MB up, this being much less than desired. However, our access points have bandwidth control.

Needless to say, faster internet connections will result in improved performance for your connected users.

Furthermore, if you never offered Wi-Fi before, we always recommended a separate internet line for your guest network so that your guests are not impeding on the same internet line as your business devices (ie. POS, registers, online radio.

 

What is the user limit of a Social Wi-Fi Hotspot?

Our Social Wi-Fi access point devices can support up to 32 users at once.

Additional devices can be configured and installed if required.

Alternatively, gateway devices can up to 1000 simultaneous users.

 

What is the typical signal range of a Social Wi-Fi Hotspot?

Distances can vary between 50-100 feet, depending on where the router is set-up.

Objects such as metal doors, cinder block walls, concrete walls, and glass walls can impact the signal range of the guest Wi-Fi access point.

 

My business has multiple locations. Can I install access pints at each locations?

Yes.

Social Wi-Fi access point routers can be installed on multiple locations.

Your portal login will extend to all your locations so that you may view your business as a whole, or by specific location.

Furthermore, the same campaign could be applied across all locations, or, if required, multiple types of campaigns can be configured based on your specific business needs of each location.

 

What social network logins options are supported?

Logins via Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, FB Messenger, and Instagram are supported.

Isn't this method of obtaining customer data a privacy breach?

No!

Before accessing the internet, each user has to agree to the terms of service first. These terms are the same for just about any other website that uses a social, or email login such as Spotify, Pinterest, & Walmart.

The convenience of Social Wi-Fi is merely bringing that same login experience to your guests and customers.

53-57% of consumers are willing to share their current location to receive more relevant advertising and are more likely to engage with your brand. Social Wi-Fi makes that possible.

Can I limit the amount of bandwidth and time users can consume?

Each location can be adjusted for maximum bandwidth and timed Internet access limits.
