Google Free Wifi For UBA Customers is here and it seems we all are going to get faster internet access but like with most things that come from foreign brands, there’s a little limitation.
Google Free Wifi For UBA – How It Works
Google just partnered with UBA to provide free WiFi across 11 locations in Lagos State, Nigeria.
Seriously, Just in Lagos. Google I’m disappointed. Even Facebook did the same thing with their Express WIFI.
According to reliable sources, the Wifi service would be available at 11 locations in Lagos State and is an extension of the Google Station initiative launched at the #GoogleforNigeria event held last year.
However, the good news is that Google said it will roll out the service in 200 locations in five cities across Nigeria before the end of 2019.
Google Station actually started in Lagos last year and extended to Abuja in December in partnership with Backbone Connectivity Network.
This Google-powered initiative would allow customers access to internet connectivity within the 11 branches and its environs, thereby facilitating their day-to-day businesses and activities, while ensuring unhindered connectivity.
I feel this would actually make standing at the ATM queues at the banks less boring.
The 11 branches where the hotspot will be located are: UBA Bank Road, 810-811 Bank Road, Daleko; UBA Matori, 21 Fatai Atere street; UBA Surulere, 152 Ogunlana Drive; UBA Allen, 13 Allen Avenue, Ikeja; UBA Tisco Plaza, Alausa; UBA Apapa, 11-13 Warehouse Road, Apapa; UBA Marina, 55 Marina, Lagos Island; UBA HQ, Broad Street, Marina; UBA Lekki Admiralty; UBA Oke Arin and UBA Aspamda Plaza, Trade Fair.
Google Nigeria’s Country Director, noted that the institutions remained focused on providing internet services to users for free.
She said, “With the help of our partners, we are offering high-quality internet access in heavily-trafficked areas like airports, markets, malls and bus stations throughout the country, especially in areas where there were no internet connections before.
“Even with the amazing progress on expanding mobile internet, we are finding that public Wi-Fi remains a crucial step in getting free, high-quality internet to everyone,” she explained.
Vivo announces Exynos processor smartphone with 5G connection up to 3.55Gbps
Vivo presented today during an event in China, its new smartphone Vivo X30. This smartphone stands out thanks to the presence of the Exynos 980 processor, the first to support dual-mode 5G (SA / NSA). Support for both 5G ‘bands’ will allow you to achieve better performance with regard to mobile internet speed and stability.
In fact, the manufacturer promises impressive performance at speeds up to 3.55Gbps using 5G networks. As for the choice of the Exynos 980 processor, they had little choice, as this is the only chip in production that supports dual-mode 5G.
Unfortunately, during the announcement of the Vivo X30, the manufacturer did not disclose any further information about its specifications. It was just revealed that it will be marketed during December in China. They have also confirmed that it will reach several European markets that already have a stable 5G network.
Alleged Vivo X30 Specifications
Even though official information about the specifications of the Vivo X30 has not been revealed, there are already several leaks and rumors about this smartphone. So we already have a good idea of what you can offer users.
The Vivo X30 should come with a 6.5 “inch Super AMOLED display with Full HD + resolution, 90Hz refresh rate and built-in fingerprint reader. The Exynos 980 processor will be supported by up to 8GB of RAM and up to 256GB of internal memory.
In the photographic segment, this smartphone will not disappoint either. It is believed that it will have a total of four cameras on its rear panel: 64MP + 13MP + 8MP + 2MP. Dedicated to selfies, will be a 32MP front camera.
It was also revealed that it will have a generous 4,500mAh battery with support for charging at 30W / 22.5W.
Despite being a mid-range smartphone (thanks to its processor), the Vivo X30 should have quite impressive specifications. As for its price, it is believed to be between € 410 and € 460.
Tesla cars can now “see” cones on the road
Tesla cars are among the most technologically advanced cars on the market. So whenever something new comes out for your cars it is normal to look in some wonder.
After Smart Summon, which brings the car to you at the touch of a button on the smartphone, Tesla has decided to upgrade its system so that the car can see the cones on the road.
A small incident caused by roadside cones that Tesla did not detect
This video went viral a few months ago because of the autopilot’s ineffectiveness in detecting the cones on the road. In this case, Tesla picked some cones but nothing serious to report.
The new update has been requested all over the world and is now starting to reach all vehicles with autopilot.
The new update begins to reach all Tesla cars
I believe it is important to note that Tesla cars already detected cones on the road, but did not give us a visual representation on the screen. With the new update, this already happens.
Still, in the update, Tesla informs drivers to keep a close eye on the road. Even if they have autopilot on.
Read in update ” Driving view now displays traffic cones. In cases where a traffic cone is detected and autopilot navigation is enabled (requires full auto-steering capability). As always, you are responsible your vehicle and should pay attention at all times . ”
