Trustive's WiFi client, MyHotspotter for Windows 8, is now available for FREE download

Trustive’s MyHotspotter for Windows 8 is now available for FREE download via http://www.trustive.com/myhotspotter/windows/

Trustive’s free MyHotspotter software for Windows 8 devices is now available and provides Trustive customers with seamless detection of and connectivity to Trustive’s international WiFi hotspots, located in major cities round the world. 

Trustive, a leading international WiFi hotspot operator, is pleased to be able to announce the availability of its free MyHotspotter software for Windows 8 devices. This smart client software will provide customers with seamless detection of and connectivity to Trustive’s international network of 500,000 premium WiFi hotspots, which are located in major cities and at premium sites around the world. Travellers can download this free software directly from Trustive’s website http://www.trustive.com/myhotspotter/windows/

Whilst the key benefits of using any of Trustive’s software are that they detect and then provide customers with seamless, automatic and secure authentication to Trustive WiFi hotspots, as well as a means of easily logging off afterwards, MyHotspotter for Windows 8 also includes an “Enhanced WiFi Security” feature, which can be invaluable to travellers. Based on Cisco technology, Trustive’s “Enhanced WiFi Security” feature is a web encryption system that can encrypt the user’s data between their device and the public WiFi hotspot.

Christian VanGhelder, managing director of Trustive, says “Trustive is renowned for its commitment to providing travellers with reliable, high-speed WiFi access in premium venues (e.g. airports and travel hubs, hotels, marinas, bars and restaurants etc.), enabling them to enjoy all their favourite online activities (watching videos, sharing photos, emails, VoIP and video calls etc.) whilst retaining strict control of the associated costs. Now of course, with the availability of this smart client software for Windows 8, Trustive customers will also be able to enjoy the benefits of Windows 8 as well as more secure access for ‘sensitive’ activities like making airline and hotel reservations, checking in online, shopping, banking etc., thanks to Trustive’s “Enhanced WiFi Security” feature.”

Trustive’s range of WiFi connection software and apps is available for download via Trustive’s website. Full details of Trustive’s international WiFi hotspot network (which includes 500,000 premium locations) are of course available via Trustive’s online hotspot directory: http://www.trustive.com/hotspots/.

Trustive now welcomes payments in US dollars and British pounds!

Posted by Trustive on July 31, 2009

Today, Trustive launches a multi-currency payment system for all new customers wishing to purchase or top up a Trustive WiFi pass. Trustive, a leading international WiFi access provider and No 1 in Europe, has focussed primarily on its central European customer base until now. However with it’s recent expansion into Asia (the addition of 2,000 China Telecom hotspots, including Beijing Capital and Shanghai Pudong International Airport, was announced only last week) and concrete plans for further, significant coverage expansions in Asia and further afield, over the next few months, Trustive has chosen to reinforce its new position as a leading international WiFi access provider by providing more tailored services to those international customers who need them.

Hence, the development and launch this week of a multi-currency payment system. New customers are invited to select their preferred currency (USD, GBP or EUR) from the drop-down list at the top of Trustive’s “Buy you WiFi pass’ page. The rest of the sign up process remains unchanged, but Trustive hopes that adding little details such as this new multi-currency feature will make their service even more accessible and easy to use.

Easy WiFi – Cheap WiFi for iPhone & iTouch users has arrived!

Posted by Trustive on March 25, 2009

As you may already know, Trustive recently launched Easy WiFi, a connection manager app for the iPhone and iPod Touch. This is a fantastic development for Trustive because it puts us in touch with a whole new generation of customers who are using WiFi in new and exciting ways.

WiFi has traditionally been used by travelling business men with PCs/MacBooks, but that user profile is changing quickly thanks to the release of more and more diverse WiFi enabled devices. iPhone/iTouch users are not using WiFi to keep in touch with the office or to keep up-to-date with their e-mails. No, these users are using WiFi to stay in touch with friends and family through social networking sites like MySpace and Facebook. They are watching funny videos on YouTube and Dailymotion and they are downloading episodes of their favourite TV shows or the latest music tracks from their favourite band. This is leisure surfing and as time flies when you’re having fun, so too can the bill mount very quickly if the user is having all this fun whilst connected through 3G. This is even more true if the user is roaming internationally 😉

There is no need to despair though, WiFi roaming is a far better alternative to 3G and is not as complicated as many people think. WiFi roaming enables you to download your file much quicker and results in a better picture quality for video clips. WiFi is also far cheaper, especially if you are a Trustive customer because our WiFi access packages include NO download limits and NO hidden costs. To watch a 5 minute YouTube clip would cost you either 0.40 Euros, 0.75 Euros or a maximum of 1.25 Euros depending on the price per minute of the Trustive WiFi hotspot you were at. How much would that cost through through traditional 3G roaming? I dread to think!

As I said, WiFi is not as complex as many people fear and at Trustive we strive to make one-click WiFi access a reality. That’s why we developed Easy WiFi. Once you’ve downloaded and installed this connection manager onto your iPhone or iPod Touch, all you need to do is click one button next time you’re at a Trustive hotspot and you’ll be ready to surf to your heart’s (and your wallet’s) content.

If you want to check Easy WiFi out for yourself, type Trustive in the app store search box and download it onto your iPhone/iPod Touch. If you want more help/info downloading and using Easy WiFi, check out our website: http://www.trustive.com/myhotspotter/iphone/. We’ve put together a couple of short video animations to walk you through the whole process and help you connect for the first time. If you need any additional help, then you can always contact me here, contact our online chat support or send us an e-mail with your question to support@trustive.com

I hope that you give Easy WiFi a chance because I’m sure that if you do, you’ll quickly become a WiFi fan!!

Trustive’s connection manager ‘app’ – Easy WiFi – now available for download

Posted by Trustive on March 20, 2009

Trustive is very proud to announce the launch of a MyHotspotter application designed specifically for the iPhone and iPod Touch and which is now available for download directly from Apple’s App store. The MyHotspotter app, nick-named Easy WiFi, costs just 3.99 Euros; and that includes 30 minutes of free access on any of Trustive’s 90,000 hotspots.

Trustive, a leading international WiFi Internet access provider, recognises that a reliable, high-speed WiFi service that is easy to use and correctly priced is a vital tool for the frequent traveller. iPhone and iPod Touch users will quickly see all these benefits once they have downloaded the Easy WiFi app. As members of the Trustive community they will also be able to take advantage of Trustive’s clear and low-cost pricing policy, which includes no download restrictions or hidden costs, in order to make calls, use IM services, e-mail, surf and share multimedia information during their travels.

“With its simple design, Easy WiFi is perhaps our most user-friendly connection manager yet” says Caroline Berry, Sales and Marketing Director of Trustive “and with its release, Trustive is making one-click access to hassle-free, low-cost WiFi feasible for a whole new generation of customers.”

This second foray into the world of Mac devices follows the launch earlier this month of MyHotspotter for the MacBook and serves to underline Trustive’s serious and constant commitment to improving their customer’s WiFi experience.
