Wifinity Bring 20Mb WiFi Wireless Broadband to 39 More UK Holiday Parks

Monday, Sep 23rd, 2013 (1:02 pm) - Score 4,729

Wireless ISP Wifinity has signed a new contract with the Park Resorts holiday group, which runs 39 parks spanning 1,900 acres and providing over 20,500 holiday home and touring pitches across the United Kingdom, to roll-out its latest 20Mbps capable wireless internet service (wifi).

All of the group’s 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. Most of the parks are situated in rural areas, which can make access to fast and high-capacity Internet connectivity more of a challenge.

It’s understood that Wifinity will provide 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 a 20Mbps capable Pay-As-You-Go service inside their holiday home or caravan. Visitors will also be able to sign-up to the service for the length of their stay from multiple wireless devices, including games consoles and smartphones.

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.”

Earlier this year Ofcom proposed to grant Code Powers to the operator (here), which will allow them to carry out street works to support the deployment of a new symmetric 4Mbps, 10Mbps and 20Mbps (Megabits per second) capable Wireless to Home product in “densely populated areas throughout the UK”. Since then Wifinity has also secured a debt finance facility of £1.9m from Santander Corporate & Commercial and a private equity investment of £500k to help it expand (here).
