Why Offering Free WiFi Is Good Business
Offering free WiFi to customers can be a nice incentive towards encouraging customers to patronize your business. Customers will linger longer in your establishment especially if they have access to WiFi services or WiFi calling services. Particularly if your WiFi offers that extra bandwidth for applications that require a constant internet connection.
Heavy bandwidth-dependent applications like Google Drive, Dropbox, or One Drive will often require staying connected to the network. This could last for a relatively long amount of time. Not only does it allow customers to linger longer and make purchases but also boosts your customer satisfaction efforts.
At the back end, the availability of WiFi for the business can help drive productivity and collaboration in the workplace. With WiFi available in the workplace you do not have to worry about investing in cables linking terminals or need to set up complicated routers across the office, thus reducing the clutter in the workplace.
