Customer Need

With the accommodation featuring top-class facilities such as gym, cinema, and sauna, Wi-Fi forms a basic and fundamental part of their service offering.

With over 200 students in the building who are heavily dependent on the Wi-Fi, it is very important to have a seamless connection. Whether it’s for work, social media, gaming, or streaming TV shows, a fast Wi-Fi connection is a necessity for day to day life.

The Solution

With a Glide Student managed Internet service, IconInc students were able to connect straight away when moving in. This has been key in keeping students happy and getting off on the right foot.

Today’s students have high expectations of their online experience while at university. Students want fast and seamless internet access, great content and reliable support. The quality of the online experience is a key factor in university choice, so universities and accommodation providers need to provide a complete managed internet service that exceeds expectations. That’s exactly what Glide Student delivered.

“We find it a particularly important feature that we provide good Wi-Fi. If you look at all the facilities that we offer and the level of service we provide, good Wi-Fi should be a basic. We’ve been working with Glide Student since our building opened. Any service that we provide we expect to be the best, which is a big part of why we went with Glide Student. We had a look at who else was out there and what was available in terms of different speeds and we decided after extensive research that Glide Student were going to be the best provider. From our experience so far, we have definitely made the right decision.”
