Roam on Trustive WiFi when travelling in the UK!

Trustive, Europe’s leading WiFi access provider, continues to extend its international footprint in Singapore, USA, UK, Brazil & Malaysia and will soon offer WiFi access at 700,000 premium hotspots in 130 countries.

Travellers continue to rely on WiFi for internet access on the go and according to the last European Commission report on WiFi, 78% of mobile data traffic will be supported by WiFi in the near future.

Trustive, Europe’s leading WiFi access provider at premium sites, has also verified this trend on its own WiFi network. Since the beginning of the year, Trustive WiFi traffic has doubled, with the transfer of the business world from PCs to smartphones and tablets. This transfer is also correlated to the type of activity. In previous years that were marked by the use of PCs, email and Voice over IP accounted for over 80 % of usage. Today, email represents less than 20 % of traffic, giving way to video streaming and social networks.

Trustive’s current footprint extension incorporates selected prime new sites in regions that are popular with travellers. That is why in recent months Trustive’s network has been extended in England, Asia and Brazil and, in the coming months, will be extended in Singapore, Malaysia and across several major business cities in the U.S.A, including 20 international airports, 30,000 bars/restaurants, 5,000 shopping centres and many more premium venues.

“Trustive’s approach is different from the “crowd sourcing” employed by domestic operators, whereby a portion of customers’ domestic DSL boxes’ bandwidth is used to offload 3G data traffic from their own networks. Trustive is focusing on airports, hotels, bars and restaurants, bus and train stations, shopping centres, convention centres and outdoor-citywide networks in the most visited towns and cities. For those premium sites, network operators are identified, validated and secure interconnects set-up. Users can then be identified and authorized in accordance with the restrictions and legal requirements. A 24/7 support service for users and round the clock monitoring of the quality of service enables Trustive to constantly adjust and improve its network; on some hotspots hundreds of simultaneous users are recorded!” said Christian VanGhelder, managing director of Trustive.

For travellers using Android smartphones and tablets, access to Trustive’s global WiFi network can be done in a completely seamless way, with the immediate identification of and automatic connection to Trustive WiFi hotspots using “Trustive WiFi”; a free app available on the Play Store.
