Tizeti partners Facebook to bring Nigerians affordable internet service The Express Wi-fi plans are affordable and range from N50 for 100MB to N2,000 for 10GB.

Tizeti today, November 8, announced a partnership to expand Express Wi-Fi by Facebook in Nigeria, with plans to roll out hundreds of hotspots over the coming months.

Facebook in 2016 launched the service in partnership with Nigerian ISP Coollink, starting with Lagos.

Tizeti’s intentions are to expand the reach of this cheap internet access across Nigeria, and partnering with Facebook to achieve this.

Announced at AfricaCom 2017, this initiative supports Facebook’s and Tizeti’s shared goal of connecting more people to the internet in a cost-efficient way.

A fast and affordable public Wi-Fi hotspot service, Express Wi-Fi in Nigeria is focused in areas where people gather and work, including markets, cafes and public outdoor spaces.

People can connect through Express Wi-Fi on most Android and iOS phones, tablets, and laptops.

Commenting on the announcement, Kendall Ananyi, CEO of Tizeti, said: “We look forward to launching this partnership with Express Wi-Fi which allows us to continue our mission to bring affordable and reliable internet to more Nigerians.

“Express Wi-Fi aims to reduce barriers to connectivity such as limited infrastructure and high data costs, giving more people, such as small business entrepreneurs and developers, the opportunity to connect and build community,” said Uche Ofodile, Regional Head of Africa, Express Wi-Fi by Facebook.
