Ireland's Eircom Attracts New Customers, Boosts Profits With PayPal And Aptilo

STOCKHOLM, March 26, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --

Ireland's leading communications provider eircom Group is making it easier than ever for users to enjoy eircom's WiFiHub network by adding PayPal as a payment method for its WiFi access and micro-transactions, enabled by Aptilo Networks, the leading provider of carrier-class WiFi service management and offloading solutions.

The Aptilo deployment is eircom's first commercial use of PayPal.

While the service is free for eircom Broadband, Meteor and eMobile customers, non-eircom customers can now use PayPal in addition to credit cards to purchase access to the eircom WiFiHub service. For non-eircom and eircom landline customers the service is free for the first 10 minutes and then there is a flat rate charge of €1.00 which will allow users to access the service up until midnight that day. eircom's WiFiHub is available in more than 1,900 hotspots across Ireland including at Irish Rail and DART stations, in bars, restaurants, coffee shops, petrol stations and other public venues.  

The network handles approximately one million WiFi sessions/month.

The Aptilo carrier-class WiFi service management solution seamlessly integrated PayPal into eircom's WiFiHub network. With the Aptilo solution, users can purchase access to eircom's WiFiHub service quickly and easily.

"We're making it a simple process for our customers and customers of other services to use the eircom WiFiHub service. Users know and trust PayPal, and it's easy to use," said John Bermingham, Senior Product Manager - Mobile Data and WiFi, eircom. "We are delighted to put this into place with Aptilo. The Aptilo team invented custom solutions to allow this to work. We're thrilled with the end result."

"Aptilo has helped eircom make login as easy as possible. Adding PayPal as another payment method is a natural extension of these efforts to create a great user experience," said Anders Emilsson, Vice President Sales EMEA, Aptilo Networks. "The seamless integration makes it that much simpler for users to enjoy the benefits of eircom WiFiHub access."
