Virgin Mobile Mexico use Fon’s SDK technology to enable WiFi access

We’re excited to announce a new partnership with Virgin Mobile Mexico, the leading digital provider of mobile services in Latin America!

With over 800,000 mobile customers across Mexico, Virgin Mobile are experts at using innovative ways to enhance their communication and connectivity offering in the competitive world of telecoms. By integrating Fon’s unique SDK technology into their mobile app, Virgin Mobile’s customers can now enjoy seamless connectivity to an extensive WiFi network that covers airports, hotels, shopping centers, restaurants, and other public venues in Mexico.

And customers aren’t the only ones who reap the benefits of WiFi. In fact, the introduction of WiFi has huge advantages for businesses too. WiFi not only creates a real point of differentiation from competitors, but it also enables MVNOs like Virgin Mobile Mexico to benefit from reduced data access costs. This is especially important considering the ever-increasing demand for mobile data.

Getting connected to the new WiFi service is easy thanks to Fon’s SDK: Customers simply need to download the Virgin Mobile Mexico app to their Android or iOS device. As soon as the device is close to a WiFi hotspot, customers will connect automatically, even with the app closed. Once connected to WiFi, customers will remain seamlessly connected, as long as they are in range of a hotspot.

If you’re an MVNO looking to open up worldwide WiFi access for your customers, using our SDK technology, then get in touch today! And make sure to follow us on Twitter and LinkedIn for all the latest WiFi and corporate news.
