Advertising to customers

In order to have free wireless for all, we sometimes need ways to subsidise the cost of running the network, one way to do this is through advertising.
We could allow the option for operators to upload content that is randomly selected and will be displayed at certain intervals during their time browsing the internet at the hotspot.
for instance, every 15 minutes, the auth server redirects the webpage to a image advertising coca cola. or another thing maybe in house promotions like "cup of coffee only £0.99…" which is displayed for a length of time and then allows the original request to continue.
A content manager would be needed for this and some way to schedule when and how long the adverts should run for.
