The key to success in the Internet terminal industry is location.
The primary users of Internet terminals have always been, and will always be, travelers. Anyone else is more likely to be back in front of a computer in their home or office within a couple of hours and is less likely to spend money at a public terminal or Wi-Fi hotspot. PayKiosks’ goal is to place Internet terminals in high traffic areas where our customers have no choice about using the terminal or connecting to their Wi-Fi hotspot. “We focus almost exclusively on the hotel sector and have had great success both with our company owned terminals and those owned by our distributors” said Scott McInnes, President of PayKiosks Internet Terminals Inc. “The Internet and email have become part of most everyone’s daily life. Travelers, whether on business or pleasure, have a need to stay connected and will pay for that service.”
PayKiosks has always focused on hotel locations and has designed their product accordingly. Typically, Internet terminals are limited to providing creating a Wi-Fi hotspot in an area immediately surrounding the kiosk. Depending on the environment coverage may be only 150 – 200ft. While this is adequate for a small coffee shop it won’t satisfy a hotel. PayKiosks has designed their Internet terminal with a high gain antenna built right into the kiosk enclosure. “Engineering a powerful antenna into our Internet terminal means that right out of the box our terminal creates a Wi-Fi hotspot with twice the coverage of nearest competitor’s kiosk” said Scott McInnes, President of PayKiosks Internet Terminals Inc.
For locations demanding greater coverage, PayKiosks Internet Terminals also has extensive experience installing Wi-Fi hotspots large enough to provide complete coverage to even the largest hotels. PayKiosks employs CableLAN technology to enable a network to be installed with a minimum of cabling. The CableLAN products allow the PayKiosks technicians to install the wireless network using the buildings existing coaxial (TV) cable as the wired “backbone” of the wireless network. The CableLAN products allow even a very large scale wireless network to be rolled out economically, rapidly and with little impact to the location.
“None of our competitors have the ability to extend the wireless coverage throughout an entire hotel property,” said Mr. McInnes, “Their inability to install a large scale Wi-Fi network greatly limits the revenue potential for their Internet terminal operators as well as limiting the appeal of their product to top tier locations. Employing the latest in Wi-Fi and networking technologies allows our company to secure locations that include Best Western Hotels, Comfort Suites, Holiday Inns and Executive Inns, as well as very large, high profile properties such as the Boardwalk Hotel & Casino for our owner operators.”
All of PayKiosks locations will immediately be included in one of the largest wireless networks in the world. Existing roaming agreements with wireless companies such as GRIC, iPass and Fatport will provide immediate access to tens of thousands of wireless subscribers.
PayKiosks Internet Terminals provide a complete solution for hotels that are looking to provide their guests with Internet connectivity. Hotels guests that do not travel with their own laptop or PDA can surf the web or check email right at the terminal while those with their own equipment can connect via the Wi-Fi hotspot.
