500 000 Premium WiFi Hotspots Now Available to Trustive Customers Following Another Significant Network Expansion

Posted by Trustive on January 22, 2013

Trustive, a leading international WiFi hotspot operator, is proud to be able to announce a significant expansion in its WiFi footprint. Recent breakthroughs in Asia and in particular in China, have resulted in the addition of vast numbers of premium WiFi hotspots to Trustive’s global footprint and Trustive customers can enjoy seamless access to 500,000 premium WiFi hotspots in major cities around the world.

Seamless access to 500,000 premium WiFi hotspots now available for Trustive customers

Seamless access to 500,000 WiFi hotspots worldwide

The growing popularity of revolutionary new devices (smartphones, tablets, netbooks etc.) has lead to a massive boom in traffic but the smartphone and tablet users’ desire to contain their ‘online lifestyle’ (stream TV, videos or digital radio, follow social networks, use VoIP/IM services etc.) whilst on the move has resulted in a surge in demand for quality WiFi services which enable users to maintain the same high-level of user experience as at home whilst retaining strict control of the associated costs. 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.) and in order to meet users’ high expectations, Trustive constantly strives to improve and expand its WiFi footprint; adding new premium locations, monitoring performance and usage at existing hotspots and, if required, removing any hotspots that fail to meet Trustive’s strict standards. And all of this, in order to ensure that Trustive’s WiFi network is truly world-class in terms of coverage and quality.

A crucial aspect of providing a high quality WiFi access service has to be ease of access. Travellers are no longer content to navigate a hotspot’s web page (often in a foreign language) in order to try to find out how they can log in. Seamless access is the key and travellers benefit from seamless access to Trustive’s international WiFi network thanks to a range of free connection software for laptops (Windows, Macs and Netbooks) and “Trustive WiFi” apps for smartphones and tablets (Android and iPhones/iPads), which detect and provide seamless connectivity to Trustive WiFi hotspots. Furthermore, international operators are also integrating elements of Trustive’s premium WiFi footprint into their own offering, thereby giving customers access to Trustive WiFi in premium venues (where 3G networks are often heavily congested) via their own existing smart clients.

Christian VanGhelder, managing director of Trustive, confirmed that “at Trustive, we are very proud to have achieved this milestone figure of 500,000 premium hotspots. This achievement is the result of lengthy negotiations with hotspot operators across the world in order to be able to provide Trustive customers with a low-cost but high quality hotspot service in premium locations such as at international airports and other travel hubs, in key hotel chains across the world, in bars, restaurants, marinas and other leisure venues as well as at business focussed venues like convention centres and offices. Now more than ever, customers who download our free software for their smartphones, tablets and/or laptops can enjoy seamless detection and connectivity to Trustive’s comprehensive WiFi network wherever they may be. Footprint, quality, cost and ease of access remain our top priorities.

Posted by Trustive on April 12, 2011

Trustive, a leading worldwide mobile internet access provider and the No1 WiFi access provider in Europe, is very proud to be announcing a significant increase in its WiFi coverage. The recent addition of a further 40,000 locations brings Trustive’s WiFi network to an impressive 220,000 premium WiFi hotspots across 130 countries.
This latest WiFi network expansion serves to consolidate Trustive’s presence around the world, in particular in the US, UK, Malta and France.

WiFi, the international mobile internet access solution for the perceived future

Posted by Trustive on February 23, 2011

In our 2010 report, Trustive observes new trends in the way travellers access the internet. Travellers use multiple devices – these days it is not unusual to travel with 3 or more devices – and laptops are gradually being replaced by tablets and smartphones.

This new trend is therefore leading a shift in the way that data is accessed. Regular usage of multiple devices and the real risk of loosing, breaking and/or having devices stolen means that data has to be accessible directly via the net. Forget having to download files onto multiple platforms and the headache associated with the constant need to manage and synchronize local data across multiple devices, hardisks and/or USB keys. In the 21st century, data will be stored in virtual “clouds”, accessible via any device with mobile internet access.

The combination of the availability of high-speed broadband, low-cost structures and a new generation of WiFi technology all enable users to enjoy high-speed WiFi access at home and in the office. It is therefore only natural that users prefer to use the same type of high-speed WiFi internet access services when they travel abroad as well.

Due to the above-mentioned new trends in mobile internet access, it is imperative that security be reviewed, the risks inherent to the public domain being simply too great to ignore. Trustive strongly recommends designing data access security protocols independently to the devices being used. Experts and suppliers should, in Trustive’s opinion, concentrate on providing secured access to data for internal or external use. Trustive understands the complexity of this design but, for the perceived future at least, we cannot escape current user behaviour patterns and trends and, in order to safeguard data, it is thus only sensible to address this subject sooner rather than later.

As carriers move to “à la carte plans”, business nomads working for small companies will pay increasing attention to which types of network they connect to and how much such mobile internet connections cost. Increases in workforce mobility will result in an increase in WiFi usage in the coming months and years. Today’s 3G and tomorrow’s 4G will be premium services, reserved for the top echelon of travellers. However, the vast majority of travellers will rely on WiFi access whenever they are abroad.

At Trustive, we have always worked to provide a secure infrastructure for travellers to rely on, primarily by establishing secure interconnections with our 100+ operator partners and by using the latest technology to protect our systems and sites. Trustive offers travellers a low-cost mobile internet access service that includes free WiFi software to detect and connect to Trustive WiFi hotspots in just one click. That, plus of course Trustive’s free secure web browser (also accessible via Trustive’s WiFi software) both enable travellers to connect easily and with peace of mind to the world’s largest WiFi hotspot network of 180,000 WiFi hotspots in 130 countries.

Trustive’s new ‘Mobile Hotspot’ brings seamless 3G connectivity to all your favourite WiFi devices

Posted by Trustive on August 31, 2010

Some say that all good things come in little packages and the Trustive mobile hotspot is no exception! This lightweight, credit card sized, personal hotspot is the perfect travelling companion, giving Trustive customers seamless 3G internet access in 85 countries worldwide and enabling them to quickly and easily share this connection with up to 5 WiFi enabled devices (laptops, iPads, Google Phones, iPhones or any other WiFi enabled smartphones, cameras, game consoles, etc. ).

Whenever Trustive mobile broadband internet customers are not within range of a Trustive WiFi hotspot, then Trustive’s mobile hotspot is a quick and easy way of getting mobile internet access for up to 5 WiFi devices at any one time. This private and secure hotspot is delivered pre-configured for the customer’s personal use and is incredibly easy to use (with just one button – on/off), automatically connecting to Trustive’s international 3G network (available in 85 countries worldwide) and thereby providing the ultimate in wireless freedom.

Trustive’s mobile hotspot is the latest in a range of mobile internet connection solutions aimed at giving frequent travellers maximum coverage and flexibility whilst on the move. Customers may choose to share their secure mobile hotspot internet connection with their travelling companions or co-workers (up to 5 WiFi devices can be connected simultaneously), making it an ideal solution for business travellers who often need to set up a mobile office anywhere and at anytime.

Of course, the real advantage of Trustive’s mobile broadband pass is the dual nature of the service; by combining the convenient 3G internet access with WiFi access across Trustive’s network of 140,000 premium hotspots, Trustive customers are able to manage their mobile internet usage and retain complete control of the associated costs. Trustive highly recommends offloading data heavy tasks (up/downloading multimedia files, sending/receiving large e-mail attachments, watching online videos or TV replays etc.) onto Trustive’s WiFi network in order to take advantage of the ‘no download quota’ policy applicable to all WiFi sessions (WiFi sessions are charged on a per minute basis).

Christian VanGhelder, managing director of Trustive, says “Trustive’s goal has always been to provide a comprehensive, low-cost and most importantly an easy to use mobile internet access service for travellers and by removing the usual hassle and complexity associated with 3G data roaming solutions, our mobile broadband internet package combined with the new mobile hotspot really does fulfil all these criteria.”
