Tomizone buys Australian wi-fi provider Jimojo

Tomizone claims acquisition makes it Australia's largest wi-fi service provider in the accomodation sector

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.

Obviously haven't stayed anywhere where Jimojo has coverage... Nor asked for support from them...Cheaper and faster coverage achieved via 3g

Last couple of visits to Oz I've used Optus $2 days... unlimited calling, unlimited text, and unlimited data for $2. I have no idea how anyone in the Wi-Fi business can compete with that.
