Baofeng WiFi (暴风加油站)— — More Than A Free Wifi

4G network is really fast and to be honest, very expensive. WiFi is much more fast and stable than 4G network. And Cable or fiber or ADSL network is paid by month or year, so it’s cheaper to use WiFi. Walking on the street, you can see WiFi Signs everywhere. But some problems surface in public WiFi networks.

Problems of public WiFi: 1.lower speed for lots of people are using in the same time; 2. less safety because everyone can join a public WiFi including hackers; 3. public WiFi network won’t provide much entertainment resources for its users. If you just want a free networking to tweet or WhatsApp a friend, free WiFi is totally okay. But if you want to watch a movie or catch on the newest episode of a TV program in the airport, train station or on a bus, the free WiFi sucks.

So, Baofeng WiFi provides its smart solution to WiFi users. It would install a free WiFi hot-spot with a small server in public space. Users can join this free WiFi network to enjoy a high speed internet connection, but to your surprise, it also provides users entertainment resources and nearby discount information. Baofeng WiFi is a product of Baofeng Technology, a listed company in China whose stock price boosted from less than 2 bucks to 60 bucks in a short time.

Baofeng is a media company in China, it provides copyrighted music, TV shows and dramas, and movie to its users by putting ads in its products. these entertainment resources were pre-downloaded to the small server (with regular update) and because of that, the download speed is high and stable in a small space range. And that router can push discount information to its users, by attracting more customers to shop or eating, Baofeng WiFi would earn some commissions from the sales.

Sorry this startup don’t serve outside of China, but you guys get the idea right?
