CEO of Mavin Records, Don Jazzy, and CEO of Tsaboin, Dele Odufuye, have partnered to launch a free WiFi service, Flobyt.
Flobyt is a service that will offer free internet access at places like eateries, parks, taxis, buses, restaurants and cafés, and will be accessible to people who patronize these places.
“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’,” Odufuye said at the launch.
He added: “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.”
Don Jazzy also spoke confidently about the service, saying it was one of many tech investments he was working on.
“I believe so much in this. This is one of the few other investments we are going to be sharing with you,” he said.
“I have been on social media for a long time. I know how expensive data is. I give free airtime, now it’s time to give free WiFi.”
Flobyt is currently installed in Bar Enclave, Ilupeju; FoodHouse, Ikosi; Lounge 9a, Anthony; Massimo Bar, Ikeja; Grace’s Cakes, Ogba; Jazzment Salon Lekki; Kayz Place Barbershop, Lekki; Amala Express, Lekki; White House, Sabo, Yaba and Road Star Burger, Lekki.
