Trustive (News - Alert), a leading international mobile Internet access solutions provider, recently announced in a press release that it has consolidated its international WiFi (News - Alert) hotspot network in Europe, Asia & Latin America. Also, it has expanded its international WiFi footprint to 300,000 premium WiFi hotspots due to the consolidation in Trustive’s leadership position in Europe (new network extensions in the UK, France and Eastern block countries) and also in Trustive’s newly developed markets such as Latin America and Asia.
“Trustive’s growth strategy is to continue to propose comprehensive coverage at quality hotspots in both Europe (our traditional stronghold) and fast growing markets such as Russia, Asia and Latin America” stated Christian VanGhelder, managing director of Trustive, in a press release. “The WiFi hotspot business has become hot again due to an unprecedented need for broadband services by smartphone (e.g. iPhone (News - Alert) & Android) and tablet users. The demand for bandwidth to sustain these customers’ expectations is way above and beyond that required by mobile phone customers. The smartphone and tablet users’ desire to stream TV, videos or digital radio whilst on the move means that everyone is quickly becoming experts at comparing WiFi and 3G services, understanding the associated costs and the implications in terms of speed and quality of service.”
Trustive combines the hotspot locations of more than 80+ leading WiFi operators into global network of 300,000+ WiFi hotspots in 130 countries to provide its customers seamless access to these locations using a simple pricing model. This WiFi footprint is accessible automatically with the WiFi software that detects and connects to Trustive WiFi hotspots.
Recently, TMC (News - Alert) reported that Trustive launched a range of country specific websites, aimed at meeting the specific WiFi needs of 5 European nations. These streamlined websites, presented in each country’s native language, are designed to facilitate the choice and purchase of a new range of prepaid Trustive WiFi passes (1 day, 1 week etc) to business and leisure travelers from those countries.
