    Question Best locations to implement WIFI Hotspot

    Hello guys,

    I am implementing WiFi Hotspot in my area at one location, which is well crowd and rich for money section.
    I further want to implement this concept in more areas, I want some suggestions about Ideas for implementing WiFi Hotspot at minimum cost, minimum devices and provide Internet to Greater number of customers.

    I have few ideas for places for Hotspot, please suggest if you have any more ideas for same,
    1) Colleges (Heavy Crowd, Fixed area, great for Hotspot) (College WiFi Hotspot are restrictive to many websites and downloadable content, so students demands unrestricted, unlimited connection)
    2) Markets
    3) Shopping Mall Parking (shopping mall sometime already have their WiFi Hotspot)
    4) Playgrounds
    5) Stadiums

    please suggest some more locations where Hotspot could be implemented.

    All the above are good areas for hotspots. But before you think that far ahead, you should consider the following:

    • You will require permissions from college authorities, restaurant owners, shopping mall administrators/owners, etc.
    • You will have to pay rent and/or royalty fees; I have no idea what it will be.
    • Some areas that you thought of may be impractical,e.g., Playground. I am assuming an open playground or a large park; where will your hot spot be?
    • Some of these may outright refuse the permissions not even willing to go into discussion. Perhaps "College" is one of them.
    • And most important of all the permissions, you will need the Police Clearance.
    • After getting the permissions, you will have to apply and get a license.
    • You will have to get the quote from an ISP on what the fees will be. Based on that you will need to estimate/guess how many users you will get and how much you will charge them per hour? (Assuming that you are not in this as a philanthropist)
    • You will then need to work out the break-even price/period and Return on Investment (ROI).

    Thanks for reply buddy,

    I have already obtained the license for ISP services, Currently Installed my Hotspot Management Application and Fiber line work + Hardware setup is going on. I have NOC from local grampanchayat for setting up towers/AP/CPE in the area, You are right about the rental for terrace space which i have already spoken to many commercial buildings which are ready for it in exchange of Free internet for them or small fee.

    I am currently speaking to college Administrative in my area, as the area is small there are only two colleges in my area, but as i am local resident, i am friendly with all college staff and student of one college in my area, which leads them to think for the proposal.

    Play ground and park usually wont have walls to penetrate, hence Hotspots around it gets better coverage, considering 400 sq. meters of playground should be covered in 2-3 routers (2.4Ghz)

    Restaurants and Shopping mall are always happy to provide WiFi service to their customers, i have already covered them..

    If any more ideas they are welcome,

    Someone on other forum suggested me for concept of "Movable Hotspot Setup" mainly will be used in Birthday parties, Social or Political events, Festivals for a Day or Week. It's a very good idea actually, looking forward for it!

    Hotels that provide meeting halls sometimes need such facilities for their business clients.
