Mavin Records CEO Don Jazzy and Dele Odufuye CEO of Tsaboin launched Flobyt WiFi as co-founders.
In a media presentation on Thursday, where it was launched, Dele Odufuye, on of the co-ceo said
“ Flobyt is 100% free for the users and our partner locations, all you have to do is
walk in and log in. In fact, our working slogan is ‘Don’t use your data, use ours’
We know that this is not the first free WiFi proposition in Nigeria. However, we have state of the art technology, speed, security and speed to make it an enduring one”
Flobyt Wifi is a free, fast, reliable and easy to use wifi service across our partner of locations including; eateries, parks, taxis, buses, restaurants, cafés and many more. Flobyt Wifi is designed to replicate your ‘at home’ wifi experience, when you’re out and about. Checking emails, uploading photos to Facebook, funny instagram videos – whatever you’re into, surf it for free on your smartphone or tablet.
Free WiFi in a public place is not the safest avenue to share your private and personal information. On security concerns, Dele said security protocols were in place for regular authentication and automatic disconnection of any middle man [hacker].
On the business side of things, Flobyt WiFi works by serving users a few ads during their session while granting unrestricted access. Flobyt is not the first attempt at a free WiFi solution in Nigeria, but the co-founders have faith that it would be the only enduring one. Speaking Dele said,
Don Jazzy enthused over the solution with much optimism. He hinted at a few tech investments, stating that Flobyt was not his only investment in 2017, but that he had incredible confidence in it.
The free wifi is currently installed in various locations across Lagos mainland and island and can accommodate 10 – 30 users at a time. For locations with higher traffic, Flobyt Max can take up to 80 concurrent users at one time.
