SCN’s unique approach provides new avenues and options to communities looking for ways to digitally activate public spaces and main streets while empowering the venues with the tools needed to digitally market and advertise local businesses and community events.

“Sky Connect Networks is a unique joint venture that provides the intellectual and financial capital cities and communities need for successful public WiFi and smart city initiatives,” says Henry Quintin, CEO of Sky Packets. “SCN will provide the infrastructure needed for these initiatives while giving back the control of public Wi-Fi branding and user experience to municipalities and/or BIDs, allowing them to customize the digital experience and messaging to residents and patrons of their communities.”

HOLLYWOOD, Fla., May 22, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -
- GoZoneWiFi has been selected by Sky Packets, owners and operators of large public WiFi districts, to transform community WiFi zones into powerful proximity advertising channels with GoZone's Ads4WiFi™ platform, which enables operators to deliver relevant location-based ads across its WiFi networks.
The long-term, exclusive partnership gives advertisers the opportunity to reach millions of mobile, connected visitors leveraging GoZoneWiFi's Ads4WiFi advertising media network. The addition of Sky Packets' locations including New York City, Boston, Boulder, Vancouver and Washington D.C., increases the overall footprint of the Ads4WiFi Media Network allowing advertisers to easily choose specific markets and demographics for targeted engagements.
"GoZoneWiFi's Ads4WiFi™ is bringing WiFi operators together into an innovative media network that gives WiFi providers the ability to generate new revenue streams," said Todd Myers, CEO of GoZoneWiFi. "This partnership means advertisers and agencies can leverage consumer mobile WiFi use to achieve improved ad targeting and efficiency," he added. The partnership can place brands in front of people for a much higher engagement rate compared to other forms of digital out-of-home (DOOH) advertising mediums.
Sky Packets has deployed tier-one wireless infrastructure in large urban zones across the United States. For example in New York City, Sky Packets currently manages WiFi corridors from the tip of Lower Manhattan up to 138st in Harlem and across the five boroughs. Within these hot-zones, users can use the Internet without losing WiFi signal.
"Sky Packets has been implementing and managing large municipal WiFi networks in diverse communities throughout the country. Our new WiFi Ads service must have a platform that can meet the needs of the individual networks we deploy and the Ads4WiFi solution is flexible and scalable enough to handle all of our needs,” said Henry Quintin, CEO of Sky Packets.
GoZoneWiFi develops cloud-based platforms to monetize public and guest WiFi networks. GoZone's Ads4WiFi™ platform manages the delivery of geo-targeted, digital advertisements to people using public and guest WiFi networks.
