What is WiFi?

WiFi is a wireless connection that connects a multitude of devices to a broadband network to enable internet access. It connects devices such as mobile phones, laptops and tablets to the internet without a wired network connection.  

How does WiFi work?

WiFi works via a radio signal being transmitted from your router to your device. You will connect your device to a WiFi network to gain internet access. This network allows multiple devices to access the shared connection. 

WiFi is available both for the home with our Full Fibre Broadband offers and for businesses with our Gigacube, a portable wireless router.

What are the benefits of using WiFi?

  • Inside the home, a WiFi network enables you to easily connect multiple devices to the internet. 

  • Outside of the home, WiFi is accessible in most major businesses, including restaurants, coffee shops, and shopping centres. 

  • A high-speed connection. 

  • Compatible on all WiFi-enabled devices, wherever you are.
