Can the audience receive the broadcast while using their own data plan?
No, they need to connect to the venue’s Wi-Fi. This way they can only listen to the audio while in the vicinity, and not remotely from their homes.
What’s the advantage of using this system over an FM solution?
The main benefit of using a Wi-Fi broadcaster like this over a regular FM system is that you don’t need to provide an individual and dedicated device for each member of the audience, they can use their own cell phones and headphones. This significantly reduces the cost of the complete system, as well as the hassle of having to hand out devices and then collect them back after the presentation is done.

You will need at least one Wi-Fi access point in addition to the Wi-Fi broadcaster. We recommend the Ruckus Zoneflex 7372, but any other similar device should work. A single access point can transmit to up to 70 cell phones and tablets.
