WeFi joins forces with Trustive to offer users premium expansion of WiFi network in Europe
“WeFi Premium Access – Powered By Trustive” will provide WeFi users with access to over 90,000 WiFi hotspots in 65+ countries worldwide.
WeFi Inc. (www.wefi.com), creator of the first open, community-based global Wi-Fi network, and Trustive Ltd. (www.trustive.com), a leading international WiFi hotspot provider and No 1 in Europe, announced today that they have signed an agreement of cooperation in order to give WeFi users access to Trustive’s global network of 90,000 Wi-Fi hotspots. According to the agreement, Trustive’s Wi-Fi hotspot network will be available to users of WeFi’s software as part of a premium service entitled “WeFi Premium Access – Powered By Trustive”, which will be launched before the end of this year. Trustive’s hotspots – spread across 65 countries with the main concentration being in Europe and Asia – will be highly beneficial to WeFi users, especially in places where free Wi-Fi access is unavailable.
Users of WeFi’s award-winning software, who are already automatically connected to the best free and open hotspots whenever and wherever possible, can now have access to an even wider database of premium hotspots around the world. The WeFi software dramatically enhances the wireless network user experience with mobile and portable devices. It provides a high performance, open and global broadband wireless network by combining a community-generated database, a smart connection manager and a dynamic access point/hotspot directory. WeFi always seeks to connect users to WiFi access points where the Internet access has already been verified by other WeFi-enabled devices – dubbed “community-verified spots” – and has a growing network of over 32 million “verified” access points.
“WeFi is constantly looking for new ways to increase WiFi availability for everyone,” said Zur Feldman, Chairman and CEO of WeFi. “Adding Trustive’s global network of 90,000 premium hotspot locations expands our rapidly growing network of worldwide WiFi access points, and enables our users to find and utilise the nearest WiFi connection wherever they are. This will be the most comprehensive WiFi offering available on the market to date.”
Christian VanGhelder, Managing Director of Trustive, added, “Trustive is thrilled to be extending the outreach of our leading WiFi service to the millions of WeFi users. Trustive understands the need to stay connected when travelling and more importantly to use WiFi access wherever possible because it is far cheaper, faster and easier than 3G; and WeFi users will now be able to benefit from Trustive’s extensive international coverage to do just that.”
