Beach goers can now access the internet from their tablets, cellular phones or other PDA’s at Horseshoe Bay Beach thanks to a new Wi-Fi hotspot launched by Transact and Digicel.
The Horseshoe Bay Beach Wi-Fi hotspot, the first area from which customers can use this service, is expected to be popular with visitors and Bermuda residents alike.
Wayne Caines, CEO of Digicel Bermuda, comments on the launch, “We live in a connected world and the ability to use Wi-Fi at this world-famous beach will be well received by many visitors and locals alike. Customers wishing to enjoy high speed internet as they soak up the sun are now able to do so easily.”
When customers at Horseshoe Bay Beach attempt to connect to the internet on their devices, they will be prompted to log into the hotspot service with a username and password. Wi-Fi access may be purchased with a credit card directly from their devices or, if a customer does not have a credit card, from the Horseshoe Concession. Prepaid Wi-Fi cards are available in the following denominations:
- 1 Hour – $2.95
- 3 Hours – $5.95
- 24 Hours – $8.95
- 1 Week – $11.95
- 1 Month – $24.95
Mr. Caines continued, “We believe this will be a particularly huge convenience for tourists who may have their data turned off to avoid roaming charges, but who would still like to access the internet from their phones or tablets. In these times, internet access needs to be readily available and it needs to be affordable.”
