Recently the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Monday in Lagos interviewed some traders to find out the their various opinions on the Google free Wi-Fi operations. Some traders expressed gratitude for the gesture by Google, and some said that the service was not yet as effective as it should be.

The President, Computer and Applied Products Dealers Association of Nigeria (CAPDAN), Mr Adeniyi Ojikutu, told NAN that the Google free WiFi was very effective. “This service is very effective, and I have been using it in my office since its installation.
“There is cause for Google to be commended. The service is so efficient that even when the network trips off, it reconnects immediately in spite of the volume of users,’’ He said.

Also, a dealer in information technology equipments, Mr Chinedu Osuala, lamented that the WiFi was not serving its purpose.
“Even to send a Whatsapp message is very difficult due to the weak network,’’ He said.
He also stated that since the installation of the free WiFi service on Sept. 20, he had not been able to carry out any meaningful Internet transaction successfully with it.

Mr Joseph Etim, a manager with the Computer Village Hub (Cvhub) expressed his fears on the use of public internet.
“There is nothing free about this service because when accessing public Internet, it means that one will disclose his or her personal details. “This personal details can be used for anything,’’ Etim said, adding that personal details of individuals when collated could cost money.


However, a Google brand ambassador who preferred to be recognized as Greg dismissed such fears relating to stealing of data, he described such fears as unfounded.
He said that those who complain of low service network are probably far away from the router. He stated that the user should not be more than 50 km away from the router if he or she wanted a perfect service.

“Basically, the purpose of the free WiFi is to get more people connected and allow Nigerians to access the internet at a lower data rate.
“It allows you to watch, read or download information, movies, video among others, and to share information with someone that has the app. “It does not buffer or stream or advert before you download.

“The free WiFi is effective because at some certain kilometres from the router the signal strength tends to be low this is why it may seem not to be so effective to some people.
“People expect and have said that the service should be at their own comfort, but this is not possible due to the volume of users,’’ the Google brand ambassador said.

According to NAN reports, there are six WiFi work station locations in the Computer Village and the environ, namely: Aina Street, Olayemi Street, Otigba Street, Oshitelu Street, Oremeji Street and the CAPDAN office.
