GoZoneWiFi has been selected by Sky Packets to transform community WiFi zones into powerful proximity advertising channels. They will do this with GoZone’s Ads4WiFi™ platform. This enables operators to deliver relevant location-based ads across its WiFi networks.
The addition of Sky Packets’ locations (including New York City, Boston, Boulder, Vancouver and Washington D.C.), increases the overall footprint of the Ads4WiFi Media Network. This inevitably allows advertisers to easily choose specific markets and demographics for targeted engagements.
“Sky Packets has been implementing and managing large municipal WiFi networks in diverse communities throughout the country. Our new WiFi Ads service must have a platform that can meet the needs of the individual networks we deploy and the Ads4WiFi solution is flexible and scalable enough to handle all of our needs,” said Henry Quintin, CEO of Sky Packets.

It seems that everywhere you go now-a-days people want to stay connected. Whether it be through your tablet, smart phone, or even personal laptop. People want to be “in the know.” But with rate plans today at an all time high, while maximizing the amount of data a person or family can use, staying connected may not always be possible. That’s why there’s wifi for restaurant marketing.
Luckily for you, GoZone Wifi could be your way out; or should we say “in!”
GoZone Wifi offers affordable plans to business owners, specifically for restaurant marketing, in order to provide them a service which will in turn benefit the customers of said business.
With GoZone Wifi, the business can;
- Shows ads and coupons
- Collect email addresses
- Gain social media followers
Why is that so important?
Businesses should always be looking to improve their services to better suit the customers’ needs and desires. By providing them access to a FAST Wifi Hot Spot, you are creating a relationship with that customer every time he or she logs in.
By providing the customer with relevant digital coupons, you have not only allowed them to receive their meal at a discounted rate, but you may have also gained some form of trust. And trust through customer loyalty is something that doesn’t come easily, as many start-up companies come to find out the hard way.
What if my customers don’t want to provide their email address?
That’s easy, make it optional. A lot of people don’t like receiving spam e-mails every single day from random companies that they may have only gone to once or twice.
In addition to collecting e-mails and providing relevant coupons and advertisements to your customers, you can also increase your social media followers with GoZone Wifi!
Overall, GoZone Wifi has a product that can fit your restaurant customers’ needs. And you know what they always say, “The customer is always right.”

News,Smart WiFi - Aug 23, 2016
In today’s world, security in the business needs to top-of-mind. You’ve seen the articles about computer network breaches like Target, Home Depot, etc etc. In these cases, hackers were able to breach the security that was put in place and they stole customer information that was stored on the network. This put the reputation of the companies at risk which for a small business, could be catastrophic.
Giving your WiFi password to guests is like giving them the keys to the store.
We frequently go to restaurants, bars and other venues and we’re freely giving the password to connect to the WiFi system. This allows us to browse everything on the network including point-of-sale systems, printers, credit card machines and back-office systems. In addition, we can “see” other guest devices that are connected to the network. THIS IS BAD!
Most off-the-shelf or ISP-provided WiFi equipment was not designed for guest access and hence, is extremely insecure. Even WiFi with the “guest access” features are designed for home WiFi systems where there may be shared printers or other shared resources. Offering WiFi as an amenity should not allow sharing between devices. It should offer the guest one thing and one thing only… controlled Internet access.
If you’re handing out your WIFi password, you should immediately stop the practice, change the password and think about putting in Smart WiFi. Smart WiFi with device isolation helps secure your network and blocks devices from “seeing” each other. In addition, Smart WiFi gives you control over how much data speed your guests can use and it allows you to adjust the time that they’re allowed online.
