“A reliable, widespread Wi-Fi network allows mobile operators to service and capture revenue through Wi-Fi onload, i.e., offer fee-based access to the network for users without a permanent subscription and visitors, as well as for non-cellular devices, such as tablets and laptops,” says Guillermo Hurtado, Research Analyst for Pyramid Research. In addition, Wi-Fi offloading allows operators to leverage the information stored in the Wi-Fi access point to deliver, for example, personalized marketing messages. Once users access the Wi-Fi network, they become targets for marketing campaigns. Operators can also engage in a Wi-Fi exchange partnership, wherein operators agree to share their Wi-Fi bandwidth in exchange for access to Wi-Fi hotspots in other parts of the world, he notes.
