Firm boosts broadband penetration with free Wi-Fi
• As Red Cheetah App Download Exceeds 100, 000 Mark
The broadband penetration target of the Federal Government, especially among youths segments of the country, received a boost, as the innovative Red Cheetah free Wi-Fi App, launched by Swift Networks crossed the 100, 000 downloads mark.
This is excluding the users of the web and Windows version of the platform. In addition, the app usage has hit an all time high of 50, 000 sessions per day.
The app, which provides up to one Gigabyte of free Wi-Fi Internet access per day per user, is available at its dedicated 500 hotspots across Lagos State.
Speaking on the achievement, Chief Operating Officer, Swift Networks, Mr. Chukwuma Okoye, said: “The accelerating adoption rate for the Red Cheetah service is a clear testament that it is meeting a critical need in the life of its users. We gave ourselves the tall order to help close the digital gap in the country, starting with Lagos State, and we are well on our way to achieving this feat. It’s been a challenging undertaken, given complexity of the technology and project management skills required to deliver this service model. But the rewards so far outweigh the sacrifices, especially now that users and advertisers are warming up to the platform.”
Red Cheetah hotspots are currently located, especially in Lagos tertiary institution campuses, malls, hotels, restaurants, clubs, hospitals, and over 200 BRT buses, among others.
