Atom IT - Approved provider of "Friendly Wifi"

We’ve always provided our education customers with flexible, cost-effective and resilient broadband and wifi solutions, but now Atom IT are taking this service to another level for business – particularly those that need to offer wireless connectivity to a broad customer base.

I’ve always travelled a lot with work, and sometimes have to rely on hotel, restaraunt and coffee shop wifi to get through the working day. It wouldn’t necessarily occur to most, but my involvement in the education sector (and their absolute need for secure, correctly filtered wifi) has really made me question what I’m connecting to in those places. Even more so when I’m travelling for leisure with my kids.

You expect your kids to be kept safe online at school, and can control most things at home, but what about in a hotel or restaurant? Handing them your (or their) iPad, Laptop or phone so you can get 15 minutes peace, to talk, get organised, or ready for the day is a common-place thing. Is that connection content-filtered? Most likely not.

Friendly WiFi is a government-initiated safe certification standard for public WiFi. The Friendly WiFi symbol tells you where the service meets minimum filtering standards – particularly in areas where children are present.

 Approved venues worldwide displaying the Friendly WiFi symbol have proved their service blocks access to pornography, images and videos of child sexual abuse and web pages known by the Internet Watch Foundation to host indecent images of children.

 This certification means you can know for sure. Your online experience is safe. Your customers are safe.

Atom IT are delighted to announce that they are now an Approved Friendly Wifi Provider. Our flavour of Friendly Wifi not only keeps your customers and their children safe, but your business systems, email and data benefits too.
