A multimedia serve brand, LEGEND, has deployed a municipal Wi-Fi network in the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) to join over 100 cities across the world.
In a statement released yesterday in Abuja, by the Chief Marketing officer, Gabriel Gab-Umoden, A Wi-Fi hotspot is a location with Wi-Fi access available to the public on a paid or free basis. A Municipal Wi-Fi network is a chain of hotspots connected through a wired or wireless backhaul system using a cluster of Wireless Access Points (APs).
“Public services such as CCTV security systems, access to emergency services and online city directories can ride on the back of a municipal Wi-Fi network, ensuring the security and safety of citizens.”
“Wi-Fi access can range from free to as low as N3,400 per month, for unlimited access, any time of the day. This represents significant value for money and relieves the citizens from huge monthly Internet Service Provider fees.”
“With such a widespread network, citizens can now have ubiquitous access to a high quality, affordable network and can be more flexible in their subscription plans, not having to tie themselves down to bulky contracts / monthly service fees.”
