Bitbuzz introduces new service at Meeting House Square
Posted on January 20th, 2012
Ireland’s leading Wi-FI provider, Bitbuzz, has announced it will be providing its wireless connection in a public space for the first time.
Visitors to Temple Bar’s newly reopened Meeting House Square will be able to connect wirelessly to the internet.
Meeting House Square reopened in December 2011 following the installation of a retractable canopy over the open space, providing an all-weather cover at outdoor events.
To celebrate the new launch Bitbuzz has installed Bitbuzz Freetime, meaning that all visitors to the Square can use the Wi-Fi service free of charge, at any time.
Des Kenny, Bitbuzz Development Manager, said: “Offering complimentary Wi-Fi in an outdoor space as unique as Meeting House Square is a new departure for Bitbuzz. Smartphones and internet tablets have greatly increased the demand for complimentary Wi-Fi in venues across the board in 2011.
“Now that most people have access to the Internet so readily on their phone we expect that levels of usage in Meeting House Square will be exceptional. We hope that Meeting House Square is the first of many such outdoor venues for Bitbuzz.”
The venue will be hosting the Dublin Chinese New Year Festival from today, 20th January until Friday 3rd February.
Dermot McLaughlin, CEO of Temple Bar Cultural Trust said: “We are in the business of bringing culture closer to people, so having complimentary Wi-Fi in a public space like Meeting House Square makes perfect sense. Our online community is growing all the time and we’re sure that complimentary Wi-Fi in the Square will be well used and appreciated.
“We are delighted to work with Bitbuzz – they understand our needs and they have worked with us to make Meeting House Square a place where creative connections can happen.”
