Q: Do you supply an internet connection at any site?
A: No, you must have a broadband connection in place with a local Internet Service Provider (ADSL, satellite or any other kind). However, we do partner with satellite companies and may be able to direct you to a supplier if one is required.
Q. How big an area will the MultiSpot™ wireless device cover?
A. It will adequately cover around a 50 meter diameter. This can vary depending upon the type of walls, amount of trees etc. A single MultiSpot™ wireless device will easily cover a cafe or common area. Our units are more powerful than the customer devices (laptops and phones) that connect to them. Therefore, it is only the customer devices that limit the range of the hotspot.
