Why We Don't Share

Posted July 9, 2015 by Webpass

Time and time again people ask why Webpass is not an option in their building. The answer is that Webpass must obtain permission from the property owner to bring our service into the property. Almost all property owners embrace the idea that competition is healthy and having multiple Internet service providers compete inside a property is a good idea. However, a handful of larger property owners will not allow Webpass into their properties unless we provide a cash incentive or enter into a revenue-sharing agreement. At Webpass, we believe our job is to provide the very best service possible to our customers and we do not agree with buying the business. It’s the same philosophy as network neutrality where Webpass provides the Internet to every customer rather than accepting or demanding payments from certain sites or networks to improve their performance. As a result, Webpass may not be an option in your building, but we will remain focused on our mission to treat every customer equally, offering simple urban Internet for all.
