There is many way to give access to the customer
1-Give the customer free access to wifi
2-secure your WIFI with password and give the password to the customer and use your net with password
But in these two ways you don’t have any control
In first option anyone get WIFI signal will use your internet connection , but your connection speed is limited and people misuse it
by downloading torrent watching YouTube ….
2nd option is the same but with single password!, Just think if you give password to your customer and they share it again don’t have any choice but you have to keep change the password and assign someone to to it , if you lucky other router setup not changed !!
Another disadvantage of above is , people order a coffee and you need to wait until they decide to go , simply you can’t ask them to order or leave the place
There are many way to control this ….. and push customer to pay for hat they use , also in this case all customer get efficent bandwidth speed plus limited time , it means with single connection of 8 Mbps you can serve 16 active user at the same time
How System Works ?!
Lets say you decide to go coffee shop you need to purchase a coffee and you get a code ” for example Starbucks”
You will enter the code to coffee shop WiFi landing page and you get access for 1 hr while enjoying coffe
with limited bandwidth and time
