Daisy Group is offering free internet access points at Cardiff & Vale NHS Trust to ensure that thousands of Welsh hospital patients can watch Wales bid for a historic place in the Euro 2016 final.
Free internet access points at Cardiff & Vale NHS Trust are being trebled in number so that no-one misses out.
The move means that TV coverage of Gareth Bale’s men versus Portugal tomorrow (Wednesday) night will be streamed via the internet to screens at patients’ bedsides as well as to connected devices in public areas throughout the hospital.
The usual 600 WiFi access points in wards, offices and public spaces is being expanded to 1,800 in order to cope with expected demand for live footage of the match.
To make certain no-one misses a single kick – extra Daisy engineers will be despatched to the Cardiff site to ensure an uninterrupted connection.
A spokesman for Daisy Group said: “The whole nation has turned Welsh for tomorrow night and we couldn’t bear to think that anyone in hospital in Cardiff would miss this momentous moment. The Trust is taking steps to ensure that everyone will be able to log on and stream the game live from the TV to their bedside monitor, laptop, tablet or phone. As you can imagine, demand is likely to be very high so we have made sure that we are providing the relevant support to the process. We are delighted to play a small part in what we hope will be another amazing night for the people of Wales.”
