Automated, free Wi-Fi connectivity enhances service offering for communications apps:
Crowd Sourced Scale
The Curated Virtual Network is crowd sourced; every access point is discovered by one of millions of Devicescape-enabled smartphones.
Our crowd continuously reports on the availability and quality of the Wi-Fi in the CVN, so we always know what to use and when to use it. And because the crowd discovers new access points every day, our network is always growing.
