Temporary Event WiFi Solution For Light Up Bristol

“The Bytes team were great to work with right from enquiry to delivery, they were really efficient and helpful on site. The hardware used was professional and fault proof which was great for our 5 week long event.”

Light Up Bristol was an event organised by Fresh Productions, at Ashton Court in Bristol. The event ran for five weeks and was attended by thousands of visitors across the Christmas period.


Fresh Productions came to Bytes Digital looking for reliable and cost-effective internet connectivity at their Light Up Bristol event. With no fixed line option available, and the event taking place in an outdoor area, they could not use traditional WiFi systems.

Fresh Productions aimed to provide their vendors with internet connectivity, for both card payments and general data usage.


Our technical team conducted a thorough on-site survey of the location, providing a detailed breakdown our proposed solution to Fresh Productions.

With everything finalised, our engineers attended site to install and test Light Up Bristol’s event WiFi solution, which included:

  • Custom-built, temporary WiFi hire equipment
  • Unlimited 4G data for the duration of the event
  • A WiFi network for vendors at the event to connect their card machines and take payments over a secure connection
  • WiFi coverage for multiple areas, with a seamless mesh network for vendors
  • Fully managed equipment and remote support provided by our in-house team for the entire event
  • Dual SIM and built-in failover across multiple networks

Once installed, our event WiFi solution provided the vendors with robust and secure internet connectivity during the event. This allowed them to reliably take card payments and provide a safer, contactless and seamless experience for guests.


Light Up Bristol was a huge success, with thousands in attendance and vendors able to consistently take card payments and keep their devices online. Vendors, guests and staff had an uninterrupted experience at the event.

Using the Bytes Digital event WiFi solution and built in failover, Fresh Productions had total peace of mind—knowing their WiFi was fully managed and supported.
