Freedom Mobile has launched an app that helps direct its customers to exclusive Wi-Fi hotspots. Dubbed Freedom Wi-Fi, the app is available on both iOS and Android. It displays Wi-Fi hotspots and Freedom Mobile retail locations on a map. Users can also use the app to get directions to those stores, find address information and register their smartphone to connect automatically to Wi-Fi hotspots.
The app seems closely tied to a similar initiative from Shaw, Freedom Mobile’s parent company. The copy in the App Store and Google Play for Freedom Wi-Fi even closely mirrors the copy for Shaw Go Wi-Fi Finder.
“With Freedom Wi-Fi you have access to over 65,000 hotspots across Western Canada,” states the app page for Freedom Wi-Fi omeprazole dr 20mg capsule. However, the app itself currently shows only 22 hotspots in the Greater Toronto Area. It would make sense, however, if Freedom Mobile customers got access to Shaw Wi-Fi hotspots in Western Canada when roaming outside of Ontario, considering how the two brands are connected.
