WOW! (NYSE:WOW) announced the availability of its WOW! Whole-Business WiFi solution across most of the WOW! Business service-area footprint. Whole-Business WiFi is based on mesh technology from eero, which includes routers and WiFi extenders to provide coverage throughout the building.
The system can be controlled via a mobile app and allows a business' customers to scan a unique QR code to join the business' guest network, eliminating the need to type in a network name and password. The mesh network isolates devices on the guest network from each other and from the business' main network, protecting business transactions and ensuring safer surfing.
"After an overwhelmingly positive response for our roll out of WOW! Whole-Home WiFi last summer, we're eager to introduce this solution for businesses, providing the fastest, most reliable, and most secure WiFi solution to businesses and their customers," said Teresa Elder, CEO of WOW!. "WOW! Business customers will no longer experience slow zones - just WOW! zones, meaning less time troubleshooting, and more time to focus on their business."
WOW!'s Whole-Business WiFi solution is installed by a WOW! technician and will be customized to the business' specific needs. The service can be bundled with other WOW! Business services, including Internet, TV and phone packages.
