Rapid expansion continues to small business customers, building one of the biggest public Wi-Fi networks in the UK
London, 9 May 2017 – XLN – the UK’s leading provider of phone, broadband, energy and card processing services to more than 100,000 small businesses – has announced that its Wi-Fi service has passed the new milestone of 20,000 public hotspots in the UK.
Rapid expansion of the network has continued since launch in October 2016, driven by customer demand and growing end user adoption. From April 2017, XLN also announced support for Wi-Fi Roaming across its network. BSG Wireless have provided the infrastructure to make this rapid expansion possible; with XLN leveraging the BSG Wireless industry-renowned ‘roaming hub’.
Andreas Bartels, Head of Wi-Fi, XLN, said: “By leveraging our network scale and partner expertise we’ve gone from nowhere in October last year to running one of the biggest public Wi-Fi networks in the country. Adding dedicated Inbound Roaming features to the service only strengthens the proposition by making it even easier for our customers’ customers to connect.” Christian Nellemann, Founder and CEO of XLN, said: “It’s always been our ambition to do more than simply save small businesses money. We want to help them grow too – and XLN Wi-Fi is testament to that. It’s levelling the playing field for small businesses, and we’re very proud of that.”
Richard Scott, CEO, BSG Wireless said: “We are delighted XLN has chosen BSG Wireless to provide Interconnection services for all of XLN’s network partners. We constantly strive to provide innovative products to help our customers meet their needs and grow revenues.”
