New app gives free Wi-Fi all across the Randstad
Amsterdam, The Netherlands - The Swedish startup Instabridge now provides access to over 300 free Wi-Fi hotspots across the Randstad area, helping residents and tourists find and use Wi-Fi wherever they are.
As mobile data becomes increasingly expensive and consumers get subscriptions with limited data capacity, finding and using quality Wi-Fi networks gets more and more important. According to a Cisco survey from 2012, over 80% of users prefer to use Wi-Fi rather than 3G or LTE when browsing on their mobile phone.
- “Finding and using Wi-Fi has not changed for the past ten years. Our goal with Instabridge is to get people connected to quality Wi-Fi networks more easily and more often” says Niklas Agevik, CEO & co-founder of Instabridge.
The Instabridge app allows users to find and use free Wi-Fi at hundreds of cafés, bars and restaurants throughout the Randstad. The Wi-Fi networks are already configured in the app, so users don’t even need to input a password to connect to them.
Instabridge also makes it easier to share and use private networks. For example, you can share your home network through Instabridge with your friends, or share your office Wi-Fi with your colleagues and visitors.
- “Wi-Fi is available almost everywhere today, but the hassle of using it limits its real world usage. With Instabridge, users will find themselves using Wi-Fi in new situations, lowering their mobile data usage, increasing battery life, and saving money,” says Agevik.
