Rural pubs connect to FREE wifi

Quickline is offering village pubs in East Yorkshire FREE wireless internet connections for use in their public areas for customers and staff, as part of a ‘Connecting Communities’ campaign.

Zoe Burdass, Landlady of St Quintin Arms in Harpham is one happy customer who is delighted with her connection following a failed service via traditional telecoms. She says: “I heard about Quickline just over a year ago and they confirmed they had coverage in this area already. I would say 90% of our customers use smart devices in the pub and guest rooms and they can now use the wifi freely without being disconnected or experiencing any buffering and interruptions.”

“Many of our guests are involved in the agricultural industry and include sales people and farm inspectors who are required to make reports and send information by email and through web portals. Our old BT connection was so appalling we couldn’t even send an email and web portals were inaccessible. Now we have no issues at all and our holiday guests are able to stream films and music.”

“Quickline offers a fantastic service, their support team is always on hand should we need it and we can also take advantage of their refer a friend scheme which gives us money off our bill. We choose to live in a rural area and prior to Quickline, a lack of internet came part and parcel with that choice but, we no longer have to accept it, giving us huge opportunities. With Quickline we are getting excellent connection speeds and I would recommend anyone living within their vast coverage area to make the call.”

Hayley Silvester, Head of Sales at Quickline says:

“Villagers who work from home can visit the pub to catch up on their emails and search the Internet whilst enjoying a drink or a bite to eat. We are welcoming people to join us on social media and invite pub landlords and their customers to advertise their new, FREE wifi service in this way. Quickline can be found @QuicklineUK on both Twitter and Facebook.”
