Blaze Wireless and Falbros Media Group are working together to address poor signal connection in parts of Chichester. The two firms have launched Chi-Fi, an exciting new initiative that aims to deliver a solution that they believe boasts a wide range of additional benefits.
Blaze Wireless director and founder Henry Brown said: Cities around the globe are constantly looking for ways to stand out from the crowd, draw investments and serve their residents and visitors alike. Becoming a ‘connected’ or ‘smart’ city is a way of achieving just that.
Ryan Ewen, FMG commercial director, explained how the service can benefit people living in the area, saying: “Jobs will be created for students due to the financial benefits that local business will experience by having a connected community.
“Currently the internet connection is poor which means that there is no need for businesses to promote their website or social media as customers locally can’t access the internet. Think ‘click & collect’ where you can’t load the booking form to show the shop owner to collect your goods.
“Then there is education; some 60 per cent of graduates leave Chichester within three months of completing their degree. The remainder have left within two years as there are no employment opportunities. House prices are 15 times average annual salary which makes living in Chichester very difficult.
