Gradually, the digital settings of Lagos is advancing. More and more Wi-Fi hotspots keeps springing up all over. One of the newest is City Connect free Wi-Fi, which appears to target commuters in the aquatic state.
Just some weeks ago, we told you about the Swift’s new Red Cheetah free Wi-Fi in malls in Lagos. There’s also a free Wi-Fi access at the JJT Park in Alausa, Lagos.
For the moment, City Connect is targeting bus stops – BRT bus terminals, to be more specific – within Lago state. So, if you are a BRT user, expect to have free Wi-Fi service along the Fadeyi to Mile 12 BRT terminals, as well as at Ikorodu and TBS terminals.
According to City Connect, it will be expanding its services to more locations, including malls and parks. They claim to currently cover 15km.
How City Connect Free Wi-Fi Works?
Unlike the way Red Cheetah free Wi-Fi works, City Connect has no data cap. This simply means you can download as you like daily.
Of course, nothing goes for free as your internet usage will be interrupted by an ad at intervals of 20 minutes. You can initiate another internet session after each ad. The service can also be used on both mobile devices, tablets, and laptops.
City Connect is yet to specify the speeds you can expect, so you will have to give it a try to find out. Please do and come share with us how it went. We love to hear of your experiences.
Important note: The use of laptop in some public places in Lagos is forbidden. Yes, in 2018! Shocking isn’t it?
