Tertiary Institutions get free wifi


Enterprise Television – Surfwella, a free Wi-Fi facility, will be made available in Nigerian universities, from this week, to give a boost to tertiary education in the country. The Chief Marketing Officer of Cyberspace Network Limited, Olusola Bankole, disclosed this on Sunday. Surfwella is a Corporate Social Responsibility initiative of the indigenous 4G operator.

Bolanle said, “The University of Abuja will be the first beneficiary, with the service scheduled for launch on the institution’s campus this week Wednesday”. Furthermore, while the firm is unveiling the service at the University of Abuja and other institutions, it is still building and adding more features on the Internet infrastructure.

The Lagos State University will be next, followed in quick succession by the College of Agric, Lafiaji, and the University of Lagos. Bankole said that Surfwella was doing this as a way to give back to the society.

“The whole idea of this project is to ensure that future graduates from universities across the country will compete with their contemporaries from other countries of the globe. More so, the surest way to be an entrepreneur is to acquiring Information and Communications Technology skills”.
