MyPlace Connect, Ireland’s largest free WiFi network, has commenced overseas expansion by making the service available in France, Germany, Britain, The Netherlands, Switzerland  and the US.

The MyPlace Connect WiFi network is solely funded by the venues in which the service is available. The service eliminates the need for codes to access the internet and to make it even more convenient customers are always remembered by the system through a one off registration. The service is always free and as a result MyPlace Connect has already signed up over 400,000 users in Ireland alone.

By allowing the venues to pay a monthly fee the cost of providing WiFi at such a high capacity is minimised for MyPlace Connect customers. This international expansion shows that businesses from all over are becoming more and more aware that free WiFi is a vital driver for business.

Peadar Gormley, the CEO and founder of MyPlace Connect expressed his excitement at the recent expansion, stating that it is in line with the vision he had created for the company when it was founded in 2010: “This is really great news for MyPlace Connect. We are growing and growing and gaining invaluable insight into how the product works internationally and what the needs of these international businesses are. This kind of market intelligence can hopefully help us expand even more over the coming years.”

Initially developed as an advertising platform, MyPlace Connect has grown to become a highly adaptable, mobile cloud based, hotspot solution.
