How would you like to offer free wifi to your customers at no cost to you? 

Does that sound too good to be true? Well, it’s not.

Netgear is teaming with Facebook® to provide Facebook Wi-Fi to small businesses. Facebook Wi-Fi ( is an application that enables merchants to provide free Internet access to their customers when they “check in” at the business’ Facebook Page.

Netgear is making the Facebook Wi-Fi login available on its premium line of next-generation wireless routers supporting dual-band 802.11ac wireless, which they describe as the world’s fastest WiFi.

It will be available on four of its routers: the Nighthawk R7000 router, the R6250 Smart Wi-Fi Router, the R6200 Wi-Fi router, and the R6300 Smart Wi-Fi router.

This is how this serviced is described on their site…

“Facebook Wi-Fi turns your router into a WiFi hotspot, prompting customers searching for WiFi to check in and like your Facebook Page before using the web for free. This opens the door to building closer relationships with your customers by sharing offers and announcements, boosting engagement on your Facebook page, and accessing aggregate insights about your customer base.”
