The Cloud has good news to share. Throughout
the past year, it passed the 5m registered users
milestone and saw its monthly usage jump by 230 per cent in the
past two quarters.
The wireless broadband operator also calculated that users were
using more than 100m Wi-Fi minutes per week.
SimplifyDigital would also like to remind you that the Cloud has
recently rolled out wireless broadband in locations such as Network
Rail stations, London Overground, Greene King pubs, Greggs,
Westfield Stratford, Ted Baker stores, the London Eye and Alton
Towers among others.
The firm also informed us that the Department of Transport
anticipated 500,000 tourists visiting London
during the Games.
This is why the operator decided to expand and add landing pages as
well as various Q&A pages to help the visitors get around.
These have also been translated into several languages, including
Chinese, Japanese, Russian, French, Spanish, Portuguese, Italian,
German, Finnish, Swedish and Danish.
Vince Russell, managing director of The Cloud,
"The demand from customers is leading a whole range of high
street venues and busy public places to install Wi-Fi for the first
"Businesses are realising that, by offering fast reliable
Wi-Fi access from The Cloud to their visitors, they can not only
deliver a better customer experience but also provide special
offers or extra services to attract people.
"This summer is likely to be the busiest tourist season
Britain, specifically London, will ever have. Lots of these
visitors will want to use their smartphones for updating Facebook
and Twitter, sharing photos or checking into locations, so Wi-Fi is
going be vital to share the burden of all this data with the 3G
"We are ensuring our Wi-Fi is ready for this growth, is
located in the places where people most value it and is as easy to
use as possible for everyone."
