Reliable Wi-Fi is a High Priority for Hotels
Each year, over 8.5 million tourists visit Australia ready to share their photographs on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter. They want to be able to call friends or family around the world on Skype, WhatsApp and FaceTime. These technologies, powered by mobile phones, have made quality cellular data and Wi-Fi access essential for travellers.
Happy guests share photos of the resort to Tripadvisor and other online travel booking sites. Don’t miss out on this key source of future bookings for your hotel – get your guests connected today! Read more about how Powertec assisted Peppers Ruffles Lodge & Spa to ensure all guests have Wi-Fi access at the resort.
Camp and Caravan Safely
A long road trip in Australia is a once in a lifetime adventure for international backpackers and Australians alike. Setting up a camper trailer, caravan, or tent to overlook the beach and enjoy a BBQ is a magical day. Yet, it is not complete without reliable mobile coverage to share photos with friends and family back home.
Keep your customers happy and connected to their family and friends with cellular signal at your campsite or caravan park. Read about how Lake Navarino Holiday Park implemented a Cel-Fi Smart Repeater solution to boost mobile signals and connect their EFTPOS machine. The coastal Exmouth Caravan Park in Western Australia was also able to dramatically improved 4G mobile signal for tourists using Cel-Fi GO.
Earning Extra Revenue from Wi-Fi in Tourist Parks
Queensland’s Gold Coast is a hot spot for tourists. Hotels and resorts that offer paid Wi-Fi access for guests staying in their properties tend to reap the rewards. Powertec assisted in the design and installation of Wi-Fi access at this Gold Coast Resort.
Using Altai C1n Super Wi-Fi CPE coupled with the Netcomm HS1200 wireless access points, Powertec was able to supply Wi-Fi to the hotel. This solution now allows guests to freely choose an internet plan and select from a variety of automated payment options outside of reception hours.
Remote Areas Require Mobile Signal Coverage
Australians enjoy seeing this magnificent country and expect there to be mobile signal wherever they go! The Wandoan Accommodation Park is 376km North East of Rockhampton and is a remote 3.5 acres of landscaped park, catering for caravans and camping.
Due to the construction of the accommodation, the buildings (dongas) only allowed intermittent cellular signal to penetrate. The lack of signal was deemed a health and safety issue. Powertec was able to assist in providing a Wi-Fi solution after discussion with the ISAAC Regional Council.
