Bitbuzz, a Wi-Fi network operator set up in 2003, has launched a new Wi-Fi hotspot at Guinness Storehouse in Dublin, offering free Wi-Fi in all public areas of Guinness Storehouse.
The Bitbuzz Wi-Fi service enables users with a Wi-Fi enabled laptop to connect to the internet at broadband speeds without the need for any cables or wires.
Visitors can now avail of 20 minutes complimentary Bitbuzz Wi-Fi access at the Guinness Visitor Centre.
Shane Deasy, managing director, Bitbuzz, commented: “This is an important and exciting deal for us as we need to meet the growing demand from tourists as the summer season approaches, especially those with handheld Wi-Fi devices, such as the iPhone.”
Bitbuzz has been working with Guinness Storehouse Conference Centre since 2006, and this new deal will also encompass an upgrade of the Wi-Fi offering there.
The only wholly-owned Irish telecoms company focused entirely on the Wi-Fi market, Bitbuzz now has more than 200 Wi-Fi hotspots in its network in the Republic of Ireland and Northern Ireland, with further expansion planned for 2010 to meet growing demand.
