Pretty fly for some Wi-Fi
24 October 2016
Ever been frustrated that you can’t get Wi-Fi? We have, and we’re determined to find a solution that will potentially make things easier in some of our homes in the future...
Last week, we spent a little time experimenting with some cool technology to see how we could bring Wi-Fi to local communities. Using our drone, we strapped a Wi-Fi enabled dongle to the contraption and flew it onto the roof of a block of our flats. Sure enough, by using a smartphone from inside the building, we hooked up to the Wi-Fi and browsed the web and accessed our Red Kite app.
Having proved that it works, we’re now looking into providing free Wi-Fi to our customers on a regular slot-basis in the future to help them access digital services from a whole range of locations around the area.
Look out for more of our innovative and creative ways of working by staying tuned to our website.
