WiFi for Social Housing

Social housing organizations need a WiFi solution that covers a large area without compromising any sensitive information. The network needs to be scalable and also accessible, enabling tenants to get online.

Safe, secure and family friendly

Purple demonstrates best practice in terms of WiFi legislation and security compliance, so it is the perfect solution for any social housing organization that wishes to provide a WiFi service.

Content filtering automatically blocks blacklisted sites containing inappropriate content, or sites which have been specifically removed at the venue’s request. We are a partner of Open DNS, who use the Internet Watch Foundation’s watchlist to block inappropriate content.

Community engagement and insight

Additionally, the service can generate interesting data on the users, such as age, gender and patterns of online usage when they login through social media platforms. This data allows the social housing organization to share information effectively and promote relevant news to users. For example, users could receive an e-shot detailing upcoming events at the local leisure centre, or be encouraged to find out more about getting involved in the community.
