dSpot® is an amazing ad supported Free WiFi Hotspot network that can deliver your ads across your competitors web sites in a completely legal and acceptable way. Built around our own Hotspot network, we achieve phenomenal ROI for our advertisiers as we combine behavioral analytics, http sniffing and URL targeting to deliver ads when clients are focused on searching for your competitors information. We are even more focused than Google AdWords on getting your message in front of people who are ready to receive it..
Our network of Free WiFi Hotspots are currently deployed into 'test' cities by our partners - independent Yellow Page publishers and franchisees who already have sales staff on the streets and access to local business advertisers and customers get free WiFi Internet access in exchange for seeing ads.
Businesses who offer dSpot and provide the backhaul connection get free advertising on the network, our partner gets exclusivity, competitive advantage and a revenue share and dSpot achieves rapid national deployment so that our ad inventory share increases in saleability and value.

Free WiFi Hotspots delivered into local businesses who benefit from the additional foot traffic, free advertising and exposure. Ad display packages are sold by our partners to other businesses and these local ads are targeted by location and time of day.
75% of the ads shown are for local services and 25% are behaviorally targeted national brand ads and are URL/keyword/behavioral targeted, down to specific web sites where appropriate. Geico could advertise when a user view a State Farm web site, Ford could advertise their latest Hybrid when a Toyota web site it visited.
