Internet Solutions increases AlwaysOn shareholding to 100%

Internet Solutions (IS) has increased its shareholding in Wi-Fi provider AlwaysOn to 100% for an undisclosed sum. In 2009 Internet Solutions acquired its original 51% stake in the company.

AlwaysOn provides secure Wi-Fi internet access to over 1,400 locations in South Africa and offers roaming capabilities in over 110 countries at more than one million hotspots.

“Wi-Fi is increasingly an integral and critical component to the mobile strategies of organisations, and Wi-Fi technology is now an important part of the overall user experience in a highly mobile, highly connected society,” IS said in a press statement.

“The demand for Wi-Fi continues to grow at an extraordinary rate, brought about by the growth of a global society that expects to be always connected anytime, anywhere,” said Sean Nourse, Chief Solutions Officer, Internet Solutions.

“For example in the US, Wi-Fi connections account for more than 37% of digital traffic over mobile phones.”

Nourse added that about 90% of internet access from tablets is done via Wi-Fi, not through a 3G or 4G network.

AlwaysOn will continue to trade and operate under the AlwaysOn brand.
