Aiming to create a Wi-Fi Hotzone to cover the entire Niseko resort area with FON and Wireless Gate

Niseko Promotion Board has made headway in the Wi-Fi infrastructure business.

Niseko Promotion Board, Wireless Gate, a wireless broadband service provider (Head Office: Shinagawa-ku, Tokyo), and Fon Japan K.K. (Head Office: Minato-ku, Tokyo), the Japanese subsidiary of the world's largest community Wi-Fi “FON,” will jointly launch the project to construct a Wi-Fi environment that covers all the tourist areas in Niseko, Hokkaido, and will start providing a free Wi-Fi service to visitors in the area including inbound tourists (foreign visitors in Japan) from November 21.
In the hotels, restaurants and activity facilities in the Niseko area, WirelessGate will install, operate and support the high-performance, low-cost wireless LAN routers manufactured by FON, which has developed over 17 million spots around the world and has users in more than 200 countries.
This will enable the facilities in the area to introduce Wi-Fi at a low cost and provide a Wi-Fi service to the tourists using their facilities free of charge for a set amount of time. Because FON is widely recognized around the world, the facilities will attract more foreign tourists and improve their convenience through the Wi-Fi service. The tourists will be able to use the service easily and safely by using the Facebook login function offered by FON without the bothersome task of entering personal information.
The service will commence on November 21, and approximately 100 facilities will provide the Wi-Fi service in Niseko area before the end of this year. WirelessGate will expand the area where the routers are installed sequentially so that Wi-Fi spots will be available in over 300 facilities in the future.
