Tomizone ranked largest Wi-Fi provider in Australasia
Tomizone was independently validated as the largest Wi-Fi hotspot provider in Australasia by research firm Agitavi Research Corporation Limited, an international company that specialises in business research in the Information and Communications Technologies (ICT) industry.

Tomizone reach the global 10,000 Wi-Fi Hotspot mark with approximately 60 per cent of these hotspots and zones in Australia and 15 per cent in New Zealand. The remaining Tomizone hotspots are throughout growing overseas markets such as Fiji, India, Brazil, UK, Ireland, Malaysia and the Philippines.

Steve Simms, CEO of Tomizone says Tomizone Wi-Fi hotspots are all around Australia and New Zealand from cafes and retail hubs, private residences to public areas, where anyone can connect to the Internet with their Wi-Fi laptop or gadget (such as iPhone or Wi-Fi enabled mobile).

“With the largest nationwide coverage, the Tomizone-enabled Wi-Fi Access Point hardware lets anyone share a broadband connection securely and make money from it by becoming a Tomizone Hotspot or Wi-Fi Zone such as the Esquires Coffee chain or Starbucks in Australia,” says Simms.

Simms also says the Tomizone has been tracking significant growth for over six months, which has greatly exceeded their forecasts.

“The Tomizone solution provides people with affordable Wi-Fi Internet access, and our focus on venues with high Wi-Fi demand is clearly delivering outstanding results,” says Simms.

Agitavi’s research showed that the next closest provider to Tomizone in terms of Wi-Fi hotspots is Telstra with a reported 1,450 zones across Australia.

Simms explains that the growth of Tomizone is significantly underpinned by an agreement made in 2008 with D-Link, whereby D-Link released its DIR-300 Wi-Fi router, which broadcasts two radio signals if the Tomizone Wi-Fi Hotspot service is enabled.

“The D-Link routers with the Tomizone function are available in retail stores across Australasia and this has resulted in the high conversion rate of customers switching on the router as a Tomizone Wi-Fi Hotspot. This means that people with this D-Link router could easily secure their own wireless traffic on one signal, whilst providing controlled open access for visitors and guests on the other signal,” says Simms.
