Nigerian musician who is also Mavin Records boss Don Jazzy has launched a free Wi-Fi service called Flobyt in Lagos, the Vanguard reports.
“I have always wanted to play big in the technology space and I looked for people who were sound and had a beautiful track record in the technology space. This is my first business investment in the technology space that is public while I remain a silent partner in others,” he said during the unveiling.
Don Jazzy is partnering with founder of Tsaboin, technology company, Dele Odufuye a project he says is to give back to the society.
“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 added.
According to Don Jazzy, at specified locations, between 10-30 people can be connected at the same time while in locations with higher traffic, Flobyt Max can provide internet service to 10-80 concurrent users.
According to the CEO of Tsaboin, “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.
