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.
Press Release : Kabiru Rabiu Launches Hollaport App
Kabiru Rabiu, Group Executive Director of Bua Group, a leading Nigerian conglomerate held the soft launch of Hollaport, a payment and messaging mobile application he founded on Saturday July 6th at the Tech Park Zone, Gbagada, Lagos.
At an event attended by the Nigerian technology players, the media and friends & family, the founder of Hollaport explained that the journey of the App started about 2 years ago and was borne of the need to ease transaction and increase financial inclusion in Nigeria. He went on to explain that the app will evolve into an expanded platform with added features that will make it exciting and extremely convenient to transfer money and make payments not only in Nigeria but throughout the African continent.
The app is a multi-layered messaging and financial technology platform on which people can send and receive money using their phone contacts. Other features on the App include airtime top-up; cable, electricity and data subscription; and paycode – a technology that enables recipient withdraws cash from an ATM without the need to have a card or bank account.
Financial Inclusion is a major issue in Nigeria, with over half of the adult population being unbanked and only a fraction of the banked using technology in their processes. Seeing this disconnect, Hollaport Technologies aims to reduce the learning curve associated with mobile applications and has taken time to develop a lifestyle tool that can fit in all areas of life, while maintaining ease-of-use.
“The question has never been one of when, but of how– and this is the gap we intend to fill in the Nigerian market” said Micheal Olowojesiku, Hollaport’s General Manager.
Despite the simple user-interface,The app is packed with features such as media functionalities where you can send photos, videos and documents. Users can request or send money within the chat area for a seamless experience and can also pay bills, utilities and make subscriptions.
Over 85% of Nigerian adults own a mobile device, 103 million have active internet subscriptions, and a large percentage of this data size have a presence on social media. The app aggregates instant messaging features with financial technology to ensure the app is as relevant as it is functional.
The app is available on both the Google Playstore and the iOS Appstore, and can also be downloaded at www.hollaport.net/downloads
