Internet Solutions (IS) has added more than 3 000 hotspots to its international footprine through a partnership with the Trustive Network
IS initially launched its Internet WiFi roaming solution with access in South America and India via it’s partners Vex and Tata Indicom WiFi.
“The latest additions to this service will allow South Africans travelling abroad to have cheaper access to WiFi broadband connectivity in both Europe and certain parts of Asia,” says Justin Spratt, hotspot business unit manager at IS.
These hotspots include locations such as major business centres, airports, hotels and retail locations, including cafes and restaurants in Austria, Cyprus, the Czech Republic, France, Germany, Greece, Ireland, Italy, Portugal, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Taiwan, The Netherlands and the UK.
“The international roaming solution allows current IS hotspot customers and other travellers to roam our extensive international partner Wi-Fi HotSpot networks by either using their IS contract login details, or purchasing prepaid airtime before departing the country or while overseas,” says Spratt.
Bundles can be purchased from various IS, reseller and partner locations countrywide or directly from the IS and AlwaysOn websites. The bundles are also valid and usable locally.
Various per minute and hourly HotSpot bundles are available.
In the next international WiFi rollout phase IS will offer access to HotSpot locations in the US and China.
