Wifinity is a fast-growing, innovative Wireless ISP. It provides superfast, robust WiFi connections to businesses in some of the UK’s most remote and hard-to-reach campus-based locations, including schools, holiday parks, key worker accommodation, hospitals, care homes and military barracks.
Wifinity solves the problem of getting fast connections to areas and organisations that are under serviced by the big ISPs, and where security and resilience are paramount. It is vendor-agnostic, and works with different technologies and networks to provide a bespoke WiFi solution (including the backhaul infrastructure needed to deliver that WiFi) to each customer. This makes it much more able to solve specific connectivity problems than most providers with a standard solution. This also means that different technologies can be used to suit a specific partner’s portfolio.
