Our WiFi works just like at home

Wifirst provides residents with their own private network to replicate a connection experience just like at home. All of their devices (smartphones, computers, games consoles, smart TVs, Chromecast, printers, connected watches, connected speakers, etc.) can seamlessly connect to a private WiFi network and communicate with each other.

Wifirst calls this feature the Room Area Network and developed it to be accessible throughout the entire building, so your residents will always remain connected to their digital world.

Frequently asked questions

Find answers to some of the most frequently asked questions regarding WiFi and Fibre services for senior living communities.

I'm unhappy with my current WiFi service provider. How can I be sure that Wifirst will offer a better solution?

Ease of use, reliability and speed are the primary focuses for Wifirst when deploying a solution in senior housing. We ensure that the service provided is carefully checked and proactively maintained, while also making sure that getting connected to the internet is as easy as possible for your residents, allowing them to stay connected to family through high definition video calling effortlessly.

How many personal devices can residents connect?

There is no limit to the number of devices your residents will be able to connect: computers, smartphones, tablets, wireless speakers, the list goes on. Also, our unique “Room Area Network” solution, allows multiple devices such as wireless printers and computers to communicate with each other, thus delivering a “home from home” experience.

Can I reuse the cables already present in my residence?

In most cases, to guarantee an optimal quality of service, our integration team carries out a complete redeployment to certify that all cabling is of the correct standard which will allow your new WiFi service to function correctly.

Will I own the equipment installed in my residence?

So that we can provide you with the most competitive rates possible, Wifirst retains ownership of the hardware installed in your residence. In addition to great value for money in comparison to buying hardware, it also means that if any of the equipment develops a fault throughout the contract duration, Wifirst will supply a replacement at no additional cost, giving you full financial predictability month to month.

What hardware does Wifirst supply?

Wifirst continuously evaluates hardware from different manufacturers to ensure you are provided with the best wireless solution to suit your needs. Our engineers have very close relationships with prestigious suppliers such as Ruckus, Cisco Meraki, Aruba, Extreme Networks/Aerohive, Dell and Huawei.

What happens if there is a problem with the WiFi?

The network is monitored continuously by our proactive support team who will intervene remotely or on-site as required if an issue is detected. Residents can contact our customer care team to receive support 24/7 by phone, email or online chat.

Site Managers also have access to our online support portal, which in addition to providing the ability to report any faults, also shows live information on the status of all equipment.
