The Challenge

Wifirst partnered with The Barrière Group in 2014 to improve their existing guest internet access throughout all properties. Guest WiFi feedback had declined, and The Barrière Group needed to engage with a provider that they could trust to turn the situation around quickly and guarantee customers a seamless high-speed internet connection at all times. 

The Solution

Wifirst responded by deploying a new fully managed WiFi network throughout all Barrière Group hotels, providing excellent coverage to all guestrooms, conference rooms and public areas, while working to a tight schedule and with minimal disruption to clientele.

The Result

Wifirst first began deploying WiFi and Fibre Leased Lines to the Group's hotels which had such a positive impact on guest and staff feedback, that Wifirst was then later entrusted with the providing services to the all the  Barrière Group Casinos too.

  • 15 Hotels connected to Wifirst services.
  • 1761 Rooms covered.
  • A further 23 Casinos connected.
  • Over 1,000 Fully Managed wireless access points giving the Barrière Group complete peace of mind, and leading to excellent guest feedback.
