Pubs invited to ‘have a quick one’

Village pubs in East Yorkshire are being offered free wireless internet connections for use in their public areas for customers and staff, as part of a “Connecting Communities” campaign by Quickline Communications, the UK’s largest Wireless Internet Service Provider.

Zoe Burdass, Landlady of St Quintin Arms in Harpham is one happy customer. She said: “I heard about Quickline just over a year ago and they confirmed they had coverage in this area already. I would say 90 per cent 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.”

Hayley Silvester, head of sales at Quickline told Beverley FM: “A small device on the roof of the property beams a signal to the nearest mast site, making our service more cost effective than fibre and, because of the way our technology works, we are able to support rural life and thousands of our customers can now work from home and run businesses in the countryside, benefitting from superfast broadband at the same time.

“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.”
