How do WiFi offload and WiFi monetization help operators to monetize services?

WiFi offload enables operators to leverage a WiFi hotspot network in places where mobile network connectivity is low, filling coverage gaps and providing customers a seamless experience. WiFi monetization today comes from much more than charging customers for access. Service providers can use captive portals to enable a host of free sponsored journeys, letting customers access the internet in exchange for watching a video advertisement, filling in a survey, logging in using their social media credentials, using redeemable vouchers, and more. They can also forge partnerships with affiliates and third-party service providers. They can offer location- and event-based promotions and offers in public places like malls, cafes, stadiums, and more. Operators can also benefit from analytics and BI insights to segment and target specific customers.

How does WiFi help to improve CX?

WiFi is a great way for service providers to boost customer engagement, brand loyalty, and customer experience. By leveraging a hotspot network, they can enable free (sponsored) and paid internet access for customers in public places like stadiums, malls, airports, cafes, educational institutions, and much more. They can introduce location-based offers and tie-up with various affiliates, as well as offer contextual and personalized plans for individual customers based on their usage patterns. Further, WiFi can help fill mobile network coverage gaps by seamlessly offloading customers on to the WiFi network in places where connectivity is low.
