Dutch city Sneek deploys iBeacon network

Friday 1 May 2015 | 13:37 CET | News
Sneek in Friesland is the first Dutch town to be covered entirely by iBeacons, reports Automatisering Gids. The beacons help residents and visitors locate museums, monuments, shops, hotels and restaurants. They need to download the associated Lightcurb beacon app to their phone in order to access the free service. It provides additional information such as history about local buildings and current events in Sneek as well as promotions from associated shops.
