Facebook Has Introduced ExpressWifi Hotspots In Lagos Nigeria

Facebook is really making sure everyone in the world is connected via the internet. Facebook introduced Facebook Lite and also partnered with Airtel Nigeria to provide free unlimited browsing to some selected sites using Free Basics.

Now, the uplifting news is that, Facebook is here again with another development in introducing ExpressWifi here in Lagos state, Nigeria in partnership with Coollink. The service is expected to launch at some point this week, but is already in operation in some parts of Lagos, such as Ikota Shopping Complex.

According to source, ExpressWifi by Facebook is a new program that lets phone owners purchase data from local internet service providers. Effectively, Facebook is providing software that helps local ISPs and entrepreneurs sell and provide internet service in rural areas, which can be accessed via public Wi-Fi hotspots.

Only users that are within the coverage of ExpressWifi will be able to browse free of charge, unlimitedly but only some selected sites on Free Basics. Hey! Hold on, you will be charged if you want to browse websites that are not on Free Basics. The prices are all friendly as data plans on ExpressWifi start at N40 for 100MB daily and go all the way up to N1,600 for a 5GB monthly plan. Each ExpressWifi point is served by a 10Mbps connection which is shared across all the users. Not as you think buddy!.

This service is currently in progress here in Lagos, Nigeria and it will be deployed across the country eventually, as soon as the first phase which is centred around Lagos is completed.

Incase you don't know, this same ExpressWifi was firstly introduced in India last month and Nigeria is the second in list where ExpressWifi by Facebook is been introduced.

Below is the official price list and data plans currently available on ExpressWifi by Facebook.
