Making free wi-fi a reality in Galway, Ireland
Thanks to Magnet Networks, over 30,000 visitors to Galway city centre now make use of free wi-fi each month. Working with Galway city council, 33 access points have been installed to ensure a consistent, GDPR-compliant service that can be accessed 24 hours a day. The service is even bilingual, recognising the importance of the Irish language in the region.
Driving better policymaking
The council now has a constant source of information about how people move around the city centre. This gives stakeholders including traffic managers, event managers and the Gardai a far clearer idea of how and when the city’s spaces are used. Armed with these insights, resources can be allocated more efficiently and economically.
A source of revenue
Galway City Council now works with the Galway Advertiser to use the wi-fi access screen as a valuable advertising medium for local businesses. This is a genuine win-win: not only is Galway free wi-fi a useful source of revenue for the council, it also allows businesses a chance to reach people in their immediate vicinity.
