Trustive Welcomes Spotcoffee’s Network of WiFi Hotspots to their International, Premium WiFi Hotspot Network

Posted by Trustive on October 19, 2010

Trustive, the No1 WiFi access provider in Europe and Asia, is very pleased to be able to confirm that they have extended their existing partnership with SpotCoffee, an innovative software development firm and French WiFi operator, thereby enabling Trustive customers to roam across SpotCoffee’s WiFi hotspot network. From today, Trustive’s community of frequent travellers will be able to use their international WiFi passes across 1600 SpotCoffee hotspots, located primarily in hotels, campsites, bars and restaurants in France and the French territories of French Guiana, Guadeloupe, Martinique and Réunion.

Trustive’s strategy has long been to provide seamless mobile internet access to travellers via a single click. Trustive’s WiFi network, which has undergone significant expansion in recent months, currently includes 180,000 WiFi hotspots in 130 countries (combining the hotspot locations of more than 100 leading WiFi operators into one unified network), making it not only No1 in Europe, but also No1 in Asia, and probably the leading international WiFi access provider as well. Trustive recently extended their service offering to include a combined mobile internet pass providing international WiFi and 3G data roaming access in order to provide their customers with even greater coverage and flexibility.

Christian VanGhelder, managing director of Trustive commented “Hotels and campsites are the 2 most popular venue types amongst Trustive customers (accounting for 56% and 31% of all Trustive customer WiFi sessions and with average session lengths of 1h30 and 3h respectively) and we are thus very pleased to be able to welcome 1600 of the SpotCoffee locations to our premium international network. The ability to share photos, watch online videos and TV replays and keep in touch via Facebook, Twitter et al quickly, easily and with peace of mind thanks to Trustive’s low-cost service and no download quota policy is greatly appreciated by Trustive’s community of frequent and occasional travellers; we are therefore sure that our community will quickly begin to make the most of these new SpotCoffee venues.”

Trustive launches new ‘regional’ WiFi passes for the Far East, South America and North-Eastern Europe

Trustive celebrates its growing international presence with the launch of three regional WiFi passes, aimed specifically at travellers heading to the Far East, South America or North-Eastern Europe.

Trustive’s strategy has long been to provide seamless mobile internet access to travellers via a single click. Trustive’s WiFi network, which has undergone significant expansion in recent months, currently includes 180,000 WiFi hotspots in 130 countries (combining the hotspot locations of more than 80 leading WiFi operators into one unified network), making it not only No1 in Europe, but also No1 in Asia, and probably the leading international WiFi access provider as well.

It is this premium network expansion in the Far East (i.e. India, China, Japan & Australia), South America (i.e. Brazil & Columbia) and Eastern Europe (including Russia & Scandinavia), which has been the impetus for Trustive’s new regional passes. The regional passes are available exclusively via Trustive’s website (www.trustive.com) for a limited period (until 31/12/2010) and at just 35 Euros for 30 hours WiFi access (the equivalent to just 0.02 Euros per minute), they represent great value for money for travellers heading to the Far East (Asia & Australasia), South America or North-Eastern Europe.

As one would expect, these regional WiFi passes benefit from all of the usual advantages associated with Trustive’s renowned WiFi service: WiFi software to detect and connect to Trustive hotspots, access to Trustive’s secure web browsing facility, secure online payment facilities and easy online top ups to name but a few. Trustive’s no download quota policy will of course be of prime interest to any travellers wishing to share their photos and HD videos, watch TV replays or check their e-mails and favourite social networks whilst they are away.

Christian VanGhelder, managing director of Trustive commented “Trustive is very proud not only of its increasing presence outside of mainland Europe (in key cities such as Shanghai, Beijing, Taipei, Manila, Hong Kong, Narita, Bangkok, Sydney, Melbourne, Auckland, Rio de Janiero, Buenos Aires, Caracas, Moscow and St Petersburg) but also of its commitment to providing customers with maximum control over their budgets, with great value for money passes and easy to use online tools so that customers can control their budgets and monitor their usage real-time, 24/7.”

Full details about each of Trustive’s regional passes, including the countries & hotspots included in each one, are available on Trustive’s website: http://www.trustive.com/pages/travel-to/

Trustive announces another WiFi network expansion

Posted by Trustive on October 5, 2010

Trustive's premium WiFi network expands once again! 180,000 premium hotspots in 130+ countriesTrustive confirms that its premium WiFi network has increased to 180,000 hotspots in 130 countries; “supporting your journey, wherever you’re going!”

Trustive, traditionally Europe’s No1 WiFi access provider, is very proud to be able to confirm that its popular WiFi network has grown once again and now includes 180,000 premium hotspots. This expansion includes the considerable consolidation of Trustive’s existing presence, particularly in Asia and Australasia (i.e. Australia, New Zealand, Taiwan etc.) but also the spread of coverage into new territories, including several Middle Eastern countries.

Trustive offers travellers extensive WiFi coverage by combining the hotspots of more than 80 leading WiFi operators into one unified, global network of WiFi hotspots and allowing Trustive customers access to these locations through a single click (single username and password plus a range of WiFi software for both computers and smartphones that detect Trustive hotspots and automate the log in process). Trustive recently extended their service offering to include a combined mobile internet pass providing international WiFi and 3G data roaming access in order to provide their customers with even greater coverage and flexibility.

This recent expansion to Trustive’s premium WiFi footprint means that not only is Trustive Europe’s No1 WiFi access provider, but also No1 in Asia and probably, the leading WiFi access provider in the world. Christian VanGhelder, managing director for Trustive explains that “Coverage will continue to be a key concern for travellers and this most recent network expansion is proof, were it required, of Trustive’s ongoing commitment to providing a truly world-class mobile internet service for its community of travellers. Trustive’s WiFi coverage now includes access at 750 airports, 32,000 hotels, 38,000 bars and restaurants, plus thousands of bus and train stations, marinas, convention centres and more venues besides. London, Paris, Barcelona, Copenhagen, Zurich, Hong Kong, Shanghai, Bangkok, Cape Town, Rio de Janeiro, Taipei, Chicago – wherever you need to be, we aim to be right there at your side, providing low-cost but high quality mobile internet access and keeping you connected whilst on the move.”

For more information regarding Trustive’s entire network of 180,000 WiFi hotspots, customers are encouraged to consult Trustive’s online WiFi hotspot locator (www.trustive.com/hotspots/). Trustive’s online hotspot locator tool enables customers to locate Trustive hotspots using either the freestyle (search by address, postcode or city) or browse search tools, filter search results according to hotspot type (e.g. hotel, airport, bar/restaurant etc.) and then plan their journeys and WiFi access in advance. Hotspot results can even be downloaded and imported into various GPS systems (Tomtom, Garmin, Navman or Navigon).
