The goal of many campsites and outdoor venues is to provide guests with a means to escape busy schedules and explore the great outdoors! But, today's holidaymakers want to remain connected, whether to catch up on work or stream a movie in the evening, there has been a huge shift in usage and expectations of WiFi being available over the past decade.
For around 15 years, Wifirst has been a leading supplier of WiFi and Fibre to a variety of venues across Europe with expansive outdoor areas. We embrace the challenges brought by providing services to the world of outdoor hospitality and would be excited to assist you with your project.
Fibre is essential for providing the internet to high capacity campsites. As a provider of WiFi and as an Internet Service Provider (ISP), Wifirst is a single point of contact for providing both services, avoiding all of the problems that may occur from having multiple vendors involved.
Wifirst is the only outdoor hospitality WiFi operator who is also an ISP, with direct links into the primary content providers such as Netflix and YouTube to provide optimised internet performance.
No two campsites are the same: the capacity, the layout, the location and any external conditions such as typical weather conditions for the region must be a consideration while correctly planning WiFi deployment. Therefore, a systematic and thorough on-site audit should take place to make sure your campsite receives full and robust coverage.
Wifirst is passionate about WiFi and would recommend deploying a fibre backbone network to guarantee the very best user experience for your campsite.
A reliable and fast WiFi service has become a key decision factor for potential guests when choosing where to stay. Many travel sites such as Booking.com now offer insights into the WiFi service at your venue, which could ultimately impact your revenue if the service provided isn't meeting your guest's needs. Wifirst's core business is to provide robust, fast WiFi and Fibre services to outdoor hospitality venues that your guests will love, and connectivity solutions to ensure your staff and IoT devices are seamlessly integrated.
Rewind to 2011 and you would find most campsites offered WiFi services which were limited to just the bar and restaurant areas, and often chargeable. More recently, we see an apparent trend for the outdoor hospitality market. It's no longer good enough to have WiFi coverage in a select few areas as guests expect coverage throughout the premises. Furthermore, they also expect the service to be free of charge.
Paid vs free Internet for guests can prove quite a challenge for venues who want to provide the best possible service while also being mindful of return on investment. Wifirst can help by ensuring you find the most cost-effective solution for your business, and by providing the WiFi service that your guests need.
