Buzz Wi-Fi: A Fee-Based Indoor Internet Solution




Places like a coffee shop or any indoor businesses where customers stay for a while will definitely have a boost of sales and satisfaction if they offer Wi-Fi connection.

We saw this Buzz Wi-Fi by NextTech online and it looks like a good option for those who thinking off offering a paid Wi-Fi service. It a pretty simple solution similar to a vending machine. All the business owner needs is a stable DSL connection and have it connected to the machine. The owner can then control the fee of the internet service and manage accounts through a portal. It can cover a range of 150 meters

Customers, on the other hand, can get access to the Wi-Fi service by simply connecting to the SSID of the machine and “tap the phone on the scan area of Device. Then, the end user can take back the phone and insert coins to buy the WiFi Internet service. The mobile phone can access Internet without login with username or password.” It’s basically a prepaid service, like most other Wi-Fi vending machines.

We’re confused how this exactly work. We’re thinking the use of an NFC chip, but how about those without NFC-enable devices?  Anyway, you can check out their website www.nexttech.com.ph to get to know more about their service.

    If it provide at least .5mbps stable internet, i’d be happy to pay! A lot of people will pay for this service so long its reliable and in a sweet spot like Food Court, Shelters, Bus stops, basically area’s where people wait a lot.

    Good idea! Yun nga lang, depende sa location mo, hindi mo alam gaano kaganda yung DSL connection papunta sa ISP. So hindi mo alam anong speed/quality ang makukuha mo, even though you pay the same P5/hr rate.

    So basically, they are selling is the machine. You have to provide your own DSL. I doubt it will be profitable at 5/hour, DSL is expensive specially if you stay true to the terms of the contract, for commercial use, the rates are higher than those of residential users.

      it will not be profitable. but it will be a good solution to increase the number of customer in your business by providing 5/hour wifi without paying for the bills. . . in fact it can also be profitable if… you put it on a public place where there are almost more than 500+ people passing by of lining up for ours.. just like MRT LRT or inside the fucking buss stuck on EDSA.
