Why offering free Wi-Fi is a good business
Offering customers free WiFi can be a good incentive to encourage customers to take care of your business. Customers will stay longer in your organization especially if they have access to WiFi or WiFi calling services. Especially if your WiFi provides extra bandwidth for apps that require a stable internet connection.
Bandwidth-heavy apps like Google Drive, Dropbox, or OneDrive often require you to stay connected to the network. This may go on for a relatively long time. It not only allows customers to stay longer and make purchases, but also enhances customer satisfaction efforts.
On the back end, having business WiFi can help increase productivity and collaboration in the workplace. With WiFi in the workplace, you don’t have to worry about investing in cables connecting the stations or needing to set up complex routers across the office, thus reducing clutter in the workplace.
