Tomizone Launches Wi-Fi Hotspot Services
Posted on 30-Aug-2006 10:31 | Tags Filed under: News



The explosion in laptops (and other portable devices) being sold with the ubiquitous “Wi-Fi” label has greatly increased world wide demand for people to be able to connect to the internet as they move about.

Up until now the proliferation of new hotspots has been the domain of big Telco’s and the geek community, but a New Zealand-based company called Tomizone wants to to change this model.

By giving away its free Wi-Fi hotspot software, Tomizone is allowing anyone with a bit of time, inclination and a basic compatible wireless router to set up a secure hotspot from any broadband connection and start making some money.

As well as providing the free software to turn wireless routers into hotspots, Tomizone also runs the whole backend including the billing and collection process and returns 60% of the revenue back to the hotspot owner.

The Tomizone service platform collects and distributes revenue, governs usage and enables funds distribution to the people that own a Tomizone hotspot. The company charges a low fee from US$2 per day for access to a Tomizone, making it one of the cheaper methods to access the Internet while on the move.

Tomizone is available for use anywhere globally where there is a fast internet connection. The Tomizone software also prevents ‘leeching’ or ‘bandwidth theft’ from unauthorised people who connect to Wi-Fi or broadband networks.

A Tomizone hotspot can be connected to any broadband connection that is of a reasonable quality.

Users must be aware that some ISPs have special conditions on their T&C that prevent sharing services.
