Wifinity, the wireless ISP, based in Kingston Upon Thames has recently signed a contract to provide wireless coverage to the Park Resorts holiday park group.
‘We are delighted to have been awarded this contract amongst stiff competition and we are looking forward to partnering with such a well-known market-leader as Park Resorts. This marks another significant step into the holiday-park market where we have already established a strong presence. ’ explains Wifinity’s Joint CEO Aubone Tennant.
Alan Castledine, Park Resorts’ Commercial Director said: “We have been aware for some time that we needed to provide a Wi-Fi service on our parks but the problem has been finding a supplier that could provide a system that delivers robust Wi-Fi at least equal to, if not better than the Wi-Fi customers experience at home. Given the location and landscape of our parks that was a difficult call, but in Wifinity we have found just that; and more.”
Park Resorts is one of the largest holiday park operators in the UK with 39 parks spanning 1,900 acres providing over 20,500 holiday home and touring pitches. All parks are located at or near to the seaside, chiefly on the south and east coasts of England, but also extending to Scotland, Wales and the Isle of Wight.
Wifinity is providing a “Park-Wide” wireless solution as well as indoor coverage in the complex and club areas of each site. Every guest will be able to benefit from Pay-As-You-Go superfast broadband of speeds up to 20Mbps per account inside their holiday home or touring caravan. This flexible service means that visitors will be able to sign up to the service for the length of their stay from multiple wireless devices including games consoles and smartphones.
By connecting the parks to its superfast network, Wifinity has enabled many of the parks, which are in rural and remote areas, to get faster broadband than anything else that is commercially available in the local area.
