FAQ

How does it work?

myFiFi is an independent Internet network which erects antennae in local neighbourhoods. These antennae, which are placed on the roofs of buildings, transmit a Wi-Fi signal covering an area of +/- 300 m.

Why have a new independent network?

What is the coverage of the myFiFi network?

The myFiFi network is expanding fast. myFiFi is an independent Internet network which erects antennae in local neighbourhoods. These antennae, which are placed on the roofs of buildings, transmit a Wi-Fi signal covering a given area. They are linked up, at very high speed and wirelessly, to the myFiFi main transmission stations. These main stations are themselves connected directly to the Internet. The more antennae there are, the more extensive the myFiFi network will be. As a residential customer, you can take part in the growth of the network and, in doing so, obtain free Internet access.

What should I do if Iím not in a myFiFi zone?

You can become a Pioneer and get free Internet access (link to Pioneer). To do this, all you have to do is make your roof available so that our technicians can erect an antenna there.

Is Wi-Fi a health risk?

This is a question currently being debated by scientists. At this stage, opinions are still divided. Several bodies such as the World Health Organisation, the Health and Radiofrequencies Foundation or the French agency for environmental and occupational health and safety, to name but a few, have carried out studies on the effect of Wi-Fi on health. Most of these scientists concluded that there was no reason to fear that Wi-Fi is a risk to health in the context of normal use.

Despite these largely reassuring conclusions, some countries have advised against Wi-Fi or even banned it in schools (the UK, Germany, Austria, Canada, and France) based on the precautionary principle. To find out more about the supporters and opponents of Wi-Fi, http://www.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wifi
