NetDef is a reputable brand in the industry and our strategy continues to be focused around working with trusted names to ensure WiFi users can access reliable and free WiFi while the business customers get something back in return.

Dave Beesley, Managing Director of NetDef added: “I’m very excited about signing up to Purple Wifi. It is a great addition to the NetDef portfolio and is a natural extension of the expertise we have around wireless networking. The marketing and analytics functionality of the product provides great business value making it relevant to an incredibly broad audience.”

Wheeldon adds: “Purple WiFi has grown in popularity at a phenomenal rate over the past year, as it enables businesses to provide the free WiFi that is demanded by their guests while eliminating the hassle by ensuring legal compliance and easy set up. It generates ‘likes’ and ‘follows’ for the venue without the need for a big marketing budget and delivers valuable information to help implement a really solid, end-to-end customer communication process.”
