The Partnership

The Ascott wanted to modernise their Citadines brand throughout Europe with updated digital connectivity and therefore selected Wifirst as a trusted partner to spearhead the network infrastructure regeneration through the provision of class-leading WiFi and Fibre Leased Line services.

A Pan-European Footprint

With the endorsement of The Ascott head office based in Singapore, Wifirst worked closely with hotels in France, Germany, Belgium, Spain and the UK to install a WiFi service tailored to the needs of the apart'hotel market. The installation throughout all 39 sites was a great success and demonstrated our adaptability to meet the needs of our customers, whatever the network requirements may be.
