A NEW INTERNET CONNECTIVITY SOLUTION IS IN TOWN AND IS OFFERING NIGERIANS FREE WI-FI, MEET GO-SPOT
The internet has become a tool we cannot live without. As at December, 2016 there were about 91,880,032 active internet users in Nigeria and estimates by the same report projects a double up of up to 191,835,936 users by the end of 2017. With the fast pace of internet penetration in Nigeria and Africa at large, demand for internet cost reduction is becoming more audible. Nigerian internet providers have listed several challenges causing the high cost of data services in the country, most citing poor power supply leading to almost total reliance on petrol hence the high cost.
New solutions are slowly springing up in Nigeria targeting internet provision and cost, one of which was the recent launch of Don Jazzy’s free internet service, Flobyt offering users free connectivity at specific places in Lagos. The solution has being tested for a scale up around the country, beyond just Lagos.
Go-Spot like Flobyt is offering users free internet connectivity, once users download the app they can locate areas where the Go-Spot service works and connect freely. With claims of “No Internet Downtime, Increased Bandwidth and Increased Speed” on their website, this solution is pivoted on a high expectation and we can only hope it lives up to and exceeds this high expectation. The app acts as a gateway granting users access. Go-Spot says users can enjoy free Wi-Fi anywhere, any day, on the go as they expand.
