Simplify comes to Windows on World Telecom Day 2021


The COVID-19 crisis underlines the critical importance of having ubiquitous Internet access throughout the pandemic. In conjunction with 2021 World Telecommunication and Information Society Day (WTISD), Simplify is finally announcing its support on Windows, which is the third major operating system it supports after Android and iOS.

Simplify on Windows enables users to connect to Simplify Smarter WiFi at one click. This makes entering passwords obsolete while connecting to any secure Wi-Fi. Users are seamlessly authenticated in the background and this brings WiFi connectivity to a whole new level of experience for Windows users. In an official report published by Microsoft, there are more than 1.3 billion devices running on Windows 10 worldwide.

Pay with GIGA

GIGA, which stands for Global Internet Gigabyte Access, is a digital currency advocated by Simplify for standardizing Internet rate globally. Every GIGA gives you one Gigabyte of data access on any Simplify Smarter WiFi, regardless of where you are. You may reload GIGA on your Windows, Android, or even iPhone and keep your GIGA wallet in sync across all platforms. Your GIGA balance will be deducted based on the actual data usage.
