UPC internet provider is introducing Wi-Free: wireless network, which UPC customers can use for free even outside of their homes. The wi-free network is created by wi-fi modems of existing UPC customers. Every modem becomes a wi-fi hotspot, allowing to use its second bandwidth, this way the internet speed for the initial customer is not affected in any way. The more customers use Wi-Free by UPC, the more Wi-Free access points are available around the Czech Republic and thus more opportunities to connect to the internet outside of your home. With Wi-Free you will stay online and connected for free not just in the Czech Republic, but also abroad.
What happens when we’re out of 3G/4G coverage? We get rather nervous, immediately starting to look for a wi-fi hotspot. However, sometimes we don’t get lucky. The times when you’ve been desperately looking for a free wi-fi hotspot are over now! With Wi-Free network, all UPC customers will be able to stay connected for free throughout 220’000 hotspots in the Czech Republic (over 140’000 in Prague, over 50’000 in Brno and 27’000 in Ostrava) and 5.5 million (!) hotspots around the EU.
The benefits of UPC Wi-Free are pretty obvious, but let’s sum them up anyway:
