The new D-Link Airspot Wireless Service enables the venue owner to choose from four service plans offering considerable flexibility of pricing, splash page customization and customer support. Venue owners can select a plan with recommended pricing of $2.95/hour, $5.95/day and $18.95/month, or they can choose their own pricing. In each case, the venue keeps 100% of the revenue less minimal monthly processing charges. There are no signup or installation charges. Venues can also choose to offer Wi-Fi service for free for a minimal monthly charge to cover splash page customization and/or support.

Venues have several options for branding the initial splash page seen by customers, including uploading their company logo and adding page titles, or having a completely customized splash designed to match their corporate identity. Venues may also choose a default splash page provided by D-Link and Pronto. Several customer support and hotspot monitoring options are also available.

"We're finding that venue owners want to customize the Wi-Fi service for their locations, as they know their clientele the best," said Jasbir Singh, president and CEO of Pronto Networks. "Our flexible back-office platform allows venues to do just that. Some venues, such as hotels, for example, prefer to offer Wi-Fi service for free to their guests, but still want to customize the splash page for their guests and provide customer support. Other venues, such as apartment buildings, would like to generate revenue from the Wi-Fi service and would prefer to set their own pricing, as they know their local market and customer base well. The instant hotspot solution from D-Link and Pronto enable location owners to customize the Wi-Fi service to meet their business objectives."
