POOLE-based telecommunications firm VoIP Unlimited will be sponsoring the free social wi-fi for Bournemouth Air Festival visitors.

Network points are being powered up between key landmarks along Bournemouth and Boscombe piers to provide free wireless internet access to the general public during the air festival, with a concurrent user capacity of 8,000 devices. The firm says that the installation of Ultra Fast Gigabit wi-fi will ensure visitors have constant access.

Mark Pillow, MD at VoIP Unlimited, said: “At VoIP Unlimited we are huge fans of the Bournemouth Air Festival and are delighted we have been invited to sponsor the social wi-fi for the show this year.

“One of the best things about the Air Festival is that it brings huge numbers of people together for four days of unique and entertaining action. We are looking forward to helping visitors share this year’s experience with those at home and across the web.”

The installation will mean wireless access to the internet will also be available in future local events over the next ten years.
