Llechwedd Slate Caverns partnered with Purple to install standard enterprise BT Broadband, linked on Purple’s recommendation to Openmesh Access Points (in the café and Emporium). Purple will eventually add additional WiFi access points across the site. Initially, positioning the routers in sales areas was tactical – encouraging visitors to stay and use free high speed WiFi to access the Internet increases dwell time and stimulates spend.
