Express Wi-Fi is a Wi-Fi service promoted by Facebook that is aimed at providing affordable internet access to under-served communities around the world. So, far Express WiFi has launched in Nigeria, Kenya, Tanzania, Indonesia, India, and now Ghana.
In partnership with Vodafone Ghana, Express Wi-Fi has launched in Ghana. Hotspots have already reportedly been deployed in a few areas within Accra, including Nima, Maamobi, Pigfarm, Jamestown and Abossey Okai.
According to reports, 100 megabytes of data on the service costs GH₵ 1.00 ($0.19) while 1 gigabyte costs GH₵ 5.00 ($0.95).
In Nigeria, you can get 300MB for N100, 3.5GB for N800 or 10GB for N1900. Express Wi-Fi is a cheaper way to get onto the internet than mobile data packs (2G/3G/4G).
Express Wi-Fi customers will be able to purchase fast, affordable data packs to access the internet via local hotspots (Wi-Fi Fast Internet Zone).
