Following the recent successful Dublin launch of Bitbuzz Freedom on Grafton St, the service has now been expanded to parts of Henry Street, Temple Bar and the Hibernian Way. Bitbuzz Freedom allows smartphone users to use practical shopping apps and social networking sites to stay in contact with friends and family. This service is complimentary in multiple 20 minute Wi-Fi sessions on Dublin’s busiest shopping streets.
Since launching in June this year Bitbuzz Freedom has already recorded excellent levels of usage on Grafton Street. Shane Deasy, Managing Director, Bitbuzz, said of the expansion to further Dublin locations: “We’re very pleased with the uptake of the service so far and this expansion to other busy outdoor cultural, shopping and socialising destinations throughout the capital is a natural progression. The launch of Bitbuzz Freedom has brought Dublin on a par with many leading cities worldwide, and indeed ahead of others in terms of Wi-Fi deployment.”
“We believe that complimentary Wi-Fi is especially important for international tourists visiting the city. In this respect Henry Street (Dublin 1), Temple Bar (Dublin 2) and the Royal Hibernian Way (Dublin 2) are ideal locations for expansion of the service and we would like to thank the business owners in these locations and on Grafton Street for their continued support. We anticipate further pick-up of this new service in the run-up to Christmas and look forward to expanding Bitbuzz Freedom to other locations throughout the country over the coming months.”
Bitbuzz Freedom is an expansion of the Bitbuzz service and offers the same quality of service the Wi-Fi company currently provides in hotels and coffee shops. Bitbuzz uses multi-band wireless point-to-point backhaul technology to provide a much better performance than traditional "mesh" solutions, enabling users to move around and continue surfing the internet as they walk down the street.
Bitbuzz recently announced that it now has over one million registered users, which was in part attributed to the launch of Bitbuzz Freedom earlier this year.
