With the increase of visitor numbers to Northern Ireland there has been in increase in the demand for Self-catering as well as Hotel accommodation with the inevitable requirement for the provision of a quality Wifi service for these guests. The provision of such a service has some unique challenges because a large proportion of the existing Apartment/Hotel buildings were built before the necessity to provide a Wifi connection was needed.
Selectwifi has been able to overcome these challenges by developing various methods of getting the Wifi signal to where it’s needed. Once overcoming these issues, it is very important that the correct customer login procedure is being used to make sure that the Wifi Hotspot provider i.e. Landlord/Hotelier, is adhering to current legislation: - GDPR, EU Directives, PCI Compliance etc.
Our Managed Wifi Solution provides a number of features including the following: -
- Customer Registration
- Social Media login
- Data Capture
- Secured Internal Network
- Web& Content Filtering
- Agreed T & Cs
- User Bandwidth Allocation
- Customised Landing Page
- Link to Owners Website
- Owner Login and Dashboard

We recently completed the installation of our managed Wi-Fi service at the latest of the Giant Serviced Apartments to be commissioned on the Ormeau Road. This makes a total of 5 different groups of apartments where we manage the Wifi on behalf of Giant Properties.
The Giant group, like a number of our customers, previously issued a passphrase to their clients on arrival which granted internet access okay but with nothing else. The Selectwifi Managed internet solution resolved the main issue of “Bandwidth Misuse” which Giants customer were experiencing plus the added bonus of having all the other benefits including the following: - Email or Social Media Registration, Legal compliance, Content Filtering etc.
MUSIC HALL SERVICES
This is another new Belfast based serviced apartments company run by Connor Neeson who manages a number of luxury apartment blocks across the city, they required a simple cost-effective way to provide a quality Wifi service for their guests.
This install presented us with a particular problem as the apartments were located in separated blocks which were not prewired. We were able to overcome this obstacle by wirelessly linking each block and then utilising the existing TV Coaxial cabling to provide wireless access points in the apartments.
Hagans Leisure Group
We have had a long-standing business relationship with the Hagan Leisure Group who asked us to install a new Wifi service at their Causeway Coast holiday park in Ballycastle. They have 25 newly refurbished apartments, and each one now has its own wireless access point. This service also required the development of a new Software App to automatically manage payments plus client access and registration.
