7 minute read

The amount of internet users has risen by 98 million in 2023 compared to 2022, that is a total of 5.16 billion, 64.4% of the population. This coupled with the fact that customers are more likely to choose a service/venue with WiFi vs one without, highlights how offering such a service has become more of a necessity rather than a luxury.  


Providing your customers with free, filtered WiFi keeps them in touch with the outside world. This also provides them with the flexibility to engage in any internet-dependent tasks they desire while at your venue, with the peace of mind that their data is protected and secure. Customers are not the only ones who benefit from free WiFi; businesses also greatly benefit. Below are 5 of the biggest benefits of offering free WiFi to your customers.

More Advantages of Free Business WiFi Services for Customers 

  • Increased customer dwell time - WiFi enables customers to stay connected which keeps them entertained and allows them to continue any correspondence. This gives you more time to entice your customers to stay, make purchases or increase the likelihood of them returning. 
  • Better insight into customer behaviours and preferences - Thanks to analytics and device tracking technology, you can glean valuable insights about customer behaviours. You can see where people tend to gather in your retail space/venue, what the popular entrances and exits are, when peak times are and so on. You can learn from this data to adjust your offerings and further boost customer satisfaction and loyalty. 
  • Targeted promotions - Valuable data can help you better understand your customers and you can use this knowledge to advertise more relevant promotions to them. This can entice further purchases.
