Linktel, Accuris Networks and Trustive provide Brazilian travelers with a roaming solution in Europe
Seamless connectivity to state-of-the-art Wi-Fi,
without the need for complicated usernames or passwords.
Brazilians who visit or travel through Europe and Asia for business or on holiday can now enjoy safe and seamless connectivity to Wi-Fi networks in more than 100 countries, thanks to a new multiphase partnership between three innovative - in terms of Wi-Fi offload and roaming services – companies: Accuris Networks, Trustive and telecommunications service provider Linktel.
According to the “European Travel Commission: Trends & Prospects, in 2012” about 3 million Brazilian tourists arrived in Europe in 2012 and the World Tourism Organisation forecasts that this figure will continue to grow gradually until 2030. With the launch of this new service, any Linktel customer can now connect to Trustive’s WiFi hotspots without any additional complicated usernames or passwords.
“Wi-Fi roaming services will become essential for operators in the next few years”, explains Jonas Trunk, Linktel’s CEO. “Such Wi-Fi services allow us to offer customers an ongoing service when they travel overseas, enabling customers to remain connected via their smartphones without the risk of incurring the exorbitant roaming costs traditionally associated with international 3G services. Thanks to the technology of operators such as Accuris and Trustive, Linktel is now able to accompany its customers on their travels to Europe and Asia via this seamless international WiFi roaming solution.”
Trustive, the No1 WiFi provider in Europe, already offers European visitors who travel to Brazil with safe and seamless connectivity to Linktel’s network of 4,000 Brazilian Wi-Fi hotspots distributed throughout the Brazilian territory, such as airports, shopping malls, business and entertainment establishments, universities, cafeterias, bookstores, in locations such as Armação de Búzios, Metrô Rio, Orla Rio, among others. Linktel is continuing to invest heavily in its Wi-Fi infrastructure & network in preparation for the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro and soon, Accuris, Trustive and Linktel will be offering local Wi-Fi offload solutions to operators in areas where network congestion exists.
Trustive provides travellers with comprehensive WiFi coverage by combining the hotspot locations of more than 80+ leading WiFi operators into one unified, global network of 700,000+ WiFi hotspots in 100 countries and allowing customers to access these locations through a single click.
