Posted by Dani Platz on Oct 27, 2020 10:50:48 PM

Everybody loves options. Options allow us to find the best opportunities available! When traffic is bad, we can adjust our driving route to find a better way to get to our destination. When hunger strikes, we don't have to settle for one restaurant, we can choose the best option available based on our location and preferences. Skyroam hotspots were designed with this in mind and that is what makes them so unique - enter SignalScan™.

 

SignalScan allows Skyroam hotspots to find you the best local connection in your area based on the multiple carriers available on the Skyroam network. If you are not satisfied with the data signal you receive, no problem, just initiate the new  SignalScan™ feature through the Solis WiFi App to reset your data signal on your own accord and always have the best quality WiFi connection no matter where you roam!

How to Get Reliable Internet When Traveling Internationally

Posted by Meredith Valentine on Sep 30, 2020 5:50:06 PM

As international travel continues to trickle back into our lives with new sanitation standards and reinstated personal space etiquette (!!), some travelers suddenly have to remember how to pack and more importantly, WHAT to pack for a successful oversea trip. 

 

Internet and travel are so closely connected these days that it's difficult to think of one without the other. You might travel for business and need to keep in contact with staff, or you might do lots of travel writing and want to post updates to your website, your Instagram account, or a travel blog. Even when traveling with family, you'll likely need varying types of internet access at the ready to stay in touch and manage your plans.

How to Stay Safe on Public WiFi

Posted by Martinique Lewis on Sep 22, 2020 4:44:40 PM

Not all WiFi is created equal. If you are a remote worker, business traveler, or a student who travels internationally, you know the difference between good and bad Wifi connections. Some signals are weak. Some are hard to connect to. Public WiFi networks are even worse; they are slow, unreliable, and simply unsafe.

No public WiFi is as secure as the WiFi you can connect to at your home or office. Unless it's a known network with relatively few users, there is a good possibility that someone may be using the system in a criminal manner. 

In today's modern age, especially 2020, we almost always need to be online! To keep your information safe when traveling anywhere off your home WiFi, keep these best practices in mind:

Solis Spotlight: Sam Newton

Posted by Meredith Valentine on Jul 28, 2020 9:59:18 AM

I’ve worked with lots of big budget agencies and directors with big budget egos. I’ve flown across the country, rented a TV-studio-sized room for a week, and filled it with grips, assistants, art directors, and wardrobe stylists.

 

While that experience taught me a lot (including that a “baby wrangler” is in fact a real job), I moved to WiFi-tech start-up Skyroam in 2018 and learned that great content could be created on a much smaller scale. Enter Sam Newton.
