XLN has outlined plans to deliver free public Wi-Fi to every high street and postcode in the UK.
The network will initially be rolled out to 15,000 of its small business customers. However, the ultimate aim is to extend this to its entire customer base.
XLN believes the move is "big news" for small businesses, as offering free Wi-Fi to attract customers can often be costly or involve the sharing of passwords.
However, with this new Wi-FI network in place, SMEs across Britain will be able to offer their customers secure and fast wireless connectivity on a free-to-use basis.
The provider stated that the reach of this new service will be "huge", as one in ten high street shops, one in seven hairdressers and one in ten restaurants are XLN customers.
Christian Nellemann, Founder and Chief Executive of XLN, commented: "We’re going to create the single biggest small business Wi-Fi network in the UK, and we’re going to Wi-Fi enable every British high street - it’s as simple as that.
"This will give customers more reasons to choose small, independent businesses over corporate giants, and that means more support for independent high streets as a whole."
Mr Nellemann added that this is a "massive" development for anybody who feels passionately about their local high street.
