What Is Business Wifi and Why Do You Need It?
Employees Won't Miss A Thing
Employees benefit significantly from the freedom of wireless technology. It lets them connect during a meeting, collaborate in a coworker’s office, or change scenery to get the creative juices flowing.
With wireless communication being as prominent as it is, the ability to work from mobile devices is a huge boost for productivity.
You Can’t Afford Not to Offer Wifi
Many people decide if they’ll return to a business or not based on whether it offers free Wifi —especially if waiting is involved.

Managed Wifi Is Your All-In-One Connectivity Solution
A managed Wifi network is a wireless network operated by a third party. The operator not only provides the equipment and internet access, but also monitors and administers the network.
Many small businesses just don’t have the staff or time to deal with the tasks that come with wireless internet. Managed business Wifi frees up your staff’s time so they can worry about more relevant business matters, like providing great customer service delivering an amazing product.
When you choose managed Wifi from Frontier, you get the benefits of having the same company running your network, and managing your wireless access points too.

Can I use my own wireless routers and other equipment?
Most Frontier Communications Wifi plans require you to use Frontier equipment. That’s because not every device or piece of equipment is compatible with all business wireless network configurations. Be sure to mention any special equipment requirements you have when discussing your network with your Frontier representative.

This depends primarily on your wireless router. Newer routers and network access points can use either band to connect to the internet. Some older equipment might only be compatible with the 2.4 GHz band.
Can my business choose the SSID for our network?
Yes, you can choose your own service set identifier (SSID) for your access points. For maximum security, we recommend using an SSID that is not related to your password. This helps keep your wireless connection secure by making it tougher for potential hackers to guess their way in.
