Captive Portal

Monetize Zero-Balance Customers

Sophisticated carriers and WiFi providers are rolling out captive portals that provide reach and visibility to advertisers and reward mobile customers with what they want most: FREE Internet

The Problem

Millions of Consumers Run Out of Mobile Data Every Month

In many emerging markets, an estimated 40% or more mobile subscribers hit a zero data balance at least once.

When consumers run out of data, they are not generating any revenue for the carrier and are more likely to churn.

But… carriers and WiFi providers also possess a captive audience and one of the most desired channels for branded advertisers.

The Opportunity

Ad-Suported Content, Apps and Services

While most operators have captive portals where consumers can buy more data, there have been limited ad-supported options deployed.

Building an ad-supported captive portal is hard – carriers and WiFi providers must build an ad sales team and then go out and sell sponsorships.
