GoZone WiFi Celebrates 20-Year Anniversary of First Passenger Airport WiFi Installation

20-Year Anniversary Celebration Coincides with Promotion of Wireless Broadband Alliance’s Hope For Connectivity Initiative and World WiFi Day

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla., June 22, 2022–(BUSINESS WIRE)–GoZone WiFi, the leader in monetizing and managing guest WiFi, and its CEO Todd Myers are celebrating his pioneering efforts and involvement in the first passenger installation of WiFi technology in the Toledo Express Airport in 2002. The twenty-year anniversary also coincides with World WiFi Day and GoZone’s activities with the Wireless Broadband Alliance (WBA) promotion of HOPE for Connectivity.

Myers is a WiFi industry pioneer and serial entrepreneur. He is responsible for creating four successful WiFi technology companies. In 2001, he created Airpath Wireless, the first cloud-based roaming, captive portal, and payment system in the WiFi Industry. While at Airpath, he was behind the first passenger WiFi installation at Toledo Express in Toledo, Ohio. Now after twenty years, Myers is clearly dedicated to the WiFi industry and understands that WiFi has allowed people to stay connected wherever they go.

What does Myers have to say?

“From sharing information with loved ones to banking, shopping, and accessing news and critical data, the advancement of WiFi truly has improved the quality of everyday life. Celebrating our twentieth anniversary of the first passenger installation of WiFi in an airport fills us with excitement. We are eager to promote World WiFi Day and the WBA’s HOPE for Connectivity initiative. GoZone will continue to innovate and provide advanced WiFi technology solutions to our customers that can continue to help provide critical connectivity to consumers in many venues globally.”

What is World WiFi Day?

World WiFi Day is a global event orchestrated by the Wireless Broadband Alliance. It shines a light on the many communities and cities worldwide that remain without WiFi access. WiFi is a vital service that keeps economies moving, and by working to address the digital divide, the WBA hopes to bring governments and companies together to close the gap.

What is HOPE for Connectivity?

The HOPE for Connectivity calls for action from local government and industry leaders to recognize and celebrate WiFi’s role in advancing our society. Meanwhile, helping to accelerate the availability of affordable connectivity for those who remain unconnected. The WBA’s vision for World WiFi Day roots in 4 key themes:

Help: funding WiFi deployments to connect the unconnected communities
Offer: affordable WiFi access in both rural and urban areas
Promote: how WiFi has been successful in connecting cities and communities
