Multimedia Service Outfit Deploys Wi-Fi Hotspot Network In Abuja

Published

Legend, a multimedia serve brand, has deployed a municipal Wi-Fi network in the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) providing access available to the public on a paid or free basis.

The FCT has now joined over 100 cities across the world with the latest initiative of the outfit with a chain of hotspots connected through a type of wired or wireless backhaul system using a cluster of Wireless Access Points (APs).

In a statement issued yesterday in Abuja by the Chief Marketing Officer driving the LEGEND brand – Gabriel Gab-Umoden said Abuja is now the 4th city to get this network in Africa, adding that Municipal Wi-Fi networks pose many advantages to the citizens.

Among the advantages according to the statement is that wireless infrastructure can provide low-cost or free Internet access to those in need, and could aid in a program to make computers — and Internet access — available to disadvantaged families.

“Public services such as: CCTV security systems, access to emergency services and online city directories can ride on the back of a municipal Wi-Fi network, ensuring the security and safety of citizens.

“Wi-Fi hotspots are powered by fiber-optic cable connectivity, which means that these networks possess huge bandwidths that allow for heavy usage from multiple users without any compromise in speed. Users who like to download or stream, will find these Wi-Fi networks very conducive for such activities.

“Wi-Fi access can range from free to as low as N3,400 per month, for unlimited access, any time of the day. This represents significant value for money and relieves the citizens from huge monthly Internet Service Provider fees.”

“With such a widespread network, citizens can now have ubiquitous access to a high quality, affordable network and can be more flexible in their subscription plans, not having to tie themselves down to bulky contracts / monthly service fees.”

Gab-Umoden also explained that Legend has developed a robust network of fiber optic backbone across the Abuja metropolis, saying “this dense fiber-optic network is being used to power a chain of Wi-Fi hotspots with super-fast internet, accessible by thousands of users at a time. These hotspots are called Legend Zones and they are the building blocks of Abuja’s first Municipal Wi-Fi network.”
