Mavin Records founder, Don Jazzy, and technology company Tsaboin on Friday launched Flobyt, a free WiFi service.
Flobyt is an easy-to-use WiFi service which has been installed across several locations in Lagos.
Some of these locations include eateries, parks, taxis, buses, restaurants, and cafés, Dele Odufuye, Tsaboin MD/CEO, revealed during the launch in Ikeja, Lagos.
The service, he said, was designed to replicate the home WiFi experience when people are out and about.
At the specified locations, between 10-30 people can be connected to Flobyt at the same time while in locations with higher traffic, Flobyt Max can provide internet service to 10 – 80 concurrent users. “It’s quite easy. You simply walk into any of our partner outlets and patronise them. While you are at that, you can log into Flobyt’s free WiFi service available. Join the “Flobyt FREE Wifi”. If your browser pops up for authentication, just visit www.mavinrecords.com or click on “Free Access” button shown to you,” said Odufuye.
“We are using state-of-the-art Wifi technology equipment that balances speed, quality of service, security and data consumption. These equipment are light weight and easier to manage. These are the technological and business edges,” he added.
Don Jazzy, in his remarks, noted that he believes in Flobyt to succeed, disclosing that it is one of the “few investments” he’s set to unveil.
“I believe so much in this. This is one of the few other investments we are going to be sharing with you.
“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,” he said.
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.
