The Crous (public service) have the management of a park of more than 170 000 student housing of which more than 80% are equipped in WiFi and Fiber by Wifirst. There are 28 Crous in France (each of them taking care of a territory).

The background

In 2013, ten years after Wifirst connected the first university residences, Wifirst's SmartCampus solution was selected by Cnous following a call for tenders to equip all the Crous residences.

The challenge

Wifirst has massively connected the residences to optic fibre and continues to innovate to offer embedded quality of service algorithms in the wibox to meet the greedy habits of students: an average of 60 GB of data consumed each month.

Satisfied students

Customer surveys show that students using the service have never been so satisfied with their internet connection. This is the reward for all the investments made by Wifirst in an ongoing effort to improve the quality of service.

  • Over 130 000 student rooms covered
  • 90 % of residences are connected to FTTO
  • Ergonomic customer journey thanks to the interface with the Crous' PMS.
