Last year, we announced our golden AP contest, in which the one millionth UniFi access point customer receives a gold-plated AP; we finally have our winner!
The gilded access point was discovered by Israel Arruda Neto, Owner of FasterNet, a WISP based in Brazil. When he saw the AP, he was in disbelief that he had found it. “You can’t imagine how many people are asking me if I created this photo in Photoshop,” Neto told us after posting it on Facebook.
Israel had previously been using other products but decided to switch to UniFi because of his positive experiences with AirMAX. Besides how easy it is to set up and use, he loves the controller and how little he needs to configure.
FasterNet uses Ubiquiti products to serve 35 Brazilian cities, giving about 20,000 customers access to wireless internet. It provides both WiFi and GPON, which is popular in Brazil in the absence of mobile wireless. His current project is a 1,000 AP deployment to provide public high-speed Internet to multiple cities in the country.
Congratulations, Israel! Enjoy your golden AP and thanks for using UniFi.
