MyPlace Connect, a provider of free Wi-Fi connectivity to restaurants, hotels, pubs, shopping centres and venues, has signed up it’s 1 millionth user. Dundrum Centre shopper Annie Thompson was presented with a gift card for Dundrum Shopping Centre by founder and CEO Peadar Gormley.
“TThe growth to 1 million users has been accelerated in the last number of years with the ever increasing demand for free Wi-Fi. As MyPlace has grown into ten countries, the number of users has grown exponentially helping us smash through the one million user barrier, long before we could have envisaged it being possible,” said Gormley.
“There is an increasing demand for hassle-free WiFi and we are thrilled to have now exceeded one million users. What it demonstrates to us and to the hotels, restaurants, shopping centres and sports venues around the world that use our platform, is that hassle-free WiFi is an essential part of the customer experience. The last two years have been very successful for MyPlace Connect with the expansion of MyPlace Connect into our 10th country and the roll out of our innovative platform for the accommodation industry to major global hotel chains such as Best Western, Quality Inn, Holiday Inn and Radisson Hotels. The growth trajectory for MyPlace Connect shows no signs of slowing down and the announcement that one million users have signed up to MyPlace connect demonstrates that.
“Free Wi-Fi has become a key ingredient for businesses in the service industry like pubs, restaurants, shops, entertainment venues or hotels. Not only does free Wi-Fi attract and retain customers, it also allows these businesses to engage with their customers in a new way.”
Founded in 2011, MyPlace Connect’s services are available in England, France, Germany, India, Ireland, Luxembourg, the Netherlands, Scotland, Switzerland and the US.
