13 Awesome Wi-Fi Facts [Infographic]


Most churches in this day and age already have internet but many are now jumping on board to offer free Wi-Fi access. Face it. Unless someone has taken the draconian step of banning electronic devices in your church, many of the attendees already have internet access, so why not provide a little support as long as everyone can respect when to use their devices?

Church often ask, “why do we need to offer people free wi-fi?”

Well, having open wi-fi at church is valuable for a number of reasons:

  • It’s convenient.
  • Many churches have guest apartments and visiting speakers appreciate the ability to access a free, high-speed connection.
  • It can be a Bible study resource.
  • Documents such as bulletins, directories, birthday lists, schedules, and calendars can now be digitized and you can start a green movement at your church.
  • Software updates to things like soundboards and other equipment that might not be close to a CAT5 wired connection.
  • Skype, or Vonage allow a church to create a flexible phone system that is accessible even when away from the building.
  • Other technologies that beginning to be internet dependent are “smart” devices like thermostats, fire alarms, lighting, and security locks. These devices allow remote control and monitoring and are even capable of learning usage patterns for increased efficiency.

Companies on the market can set up wi-fi for minimal cost, like setting up cable TV and internet at home.

It’s even possible to split up the network so that there’s a private password-protected network for the church office for maximum security.

Have a talk with everyone at your congregation and see if they are any concerns so that you may address them and talk more about offering this great service.
