The Project

The Student Hotel wanted to modernise facilities within their Barcelona Marina property, to ensure guests were kept satisfied with all of the amenities they have to offer. Part of the renovation plan was to make sure reliable and fast internet access was available for residents use throughout the building.

The Solution

The Student Hotel selected Wifirst to provide a dedicated internet connection and WiFi services. In addition to a 1GB Wifirst Fibre Leased Line, around 200 wireless access points were installed to cover the residence, giving students and visitors a highspeed internet access service that they can rely on.

The Results

Wifirst created a fast, robust and reliable network that has assisted visiting students from around the globe in connecting to the internet. 

Each month, our network at The Student Hotel supports:

  • Approximately 2,300 individual devices.
  • Roughly 75TB of downloaded data.
  • Circa 8TB of data uploaded.
