Tomizone has acquired Jimojo, which will make it Australia’s largest wi-fi service provider in the accommodation sector, Tomizone claims. Jimojo is a privately held company based in Brisbane.
Tomizone CEO Steve Simms says the company has invested heavily in Australia since opening its first wi-fi hotspot in 2006.
“This is our second major wi-fi acquisition in Australia and we can see more scope to provide top quality wi-fi services through further investment in the future.
Australia is our biggest market, and the maturity of wi-fi has reached a point where some operators can see sense into consolidating operations into a bigger footprint to provide a consistent user experience.”
Tomizone’s headquarters is in Sydney. The Brisbane office will support a wide array of customers across the eastern region. Simms says there is a network of 20,000 wi-fi hotspots and zones.
The purchase price of Jimojo wasn’t disclosed.
