Oahu, HI (PRWEB) August 11, 2006
WifiTastic, LLC., creators of an instant, out-of-the-box hotspot for wireless networks, today officially announced multi-currency support for Hotspot Owners worldwide. WifiTastic allows individuals and businesses to create revenue-generating wifi hotspots using their broadband Internet connection. With multi-currency support now offered in the billing engine, users worldwide can take advantage of the easiest, cheapest way to set up a secure commercial Wifi Hotspot just about anywhere in the world.
By setting up a commercial hotspot, owners can earn money by charging people in the vicinity of their wireless router to connect for a fixed hourly, daily or monthly fee. While the company provides a suggested pricing model, WifiTastic owners can determine their own rates in any of 51 supported currencies. Users can then connect to the router, pay by credit card, and then access the Internet. WifiTastic handles the billing and returns 60 percent of the proceeds directly to the hotspot owner.
“We’re taking the work out of owning a Wifi hotspot," said Rob Jonson, co-founder of WifiTastic. “We’ve made it so easy that any café owner, bed and breakfast owner, or anyone who lives in an apartment can make some extra cash by running a hotspot. We’re delighted to extend that service worldwide!”
Currently, the service is compatible with the Linksys WRT54G routers. Users can simply purchase a pre-configured Hotspot or update their existing Linksys router by downloading and installing a free firmware update from WifiTastic.
WifiTastic was founded in September, 2005 by David Sidrane of SmartPhoneTools.com and TreoBits.com and Rob Jonson of HobbyistSoftware.com. The co-founders identified an opportunity to help broadband subscribers monetize their connections while expanding the reach and availability for WiFi coverage. The company is dedicated to providing easy, affordable, and secure commercial hotspots. The result is WifiTastic, an all inclusive solution that combines access and payment processing for WiFi users in the vicinity of the hotspot.
