Vodafone Ghana Unveils Largest Wi-Fi Zone in Ghana

Vodafone Ghana has launched the largest Wi-Fi zone in the country at the Ghana Hostels on the University of Ghana campus.

This is the largest internet access point in the country with the capacity to serve over 5,000 students at any given time.

Students on campus can now connect and access Vodafone’s internet service through their laptops, tabs, smartphones and other Wi-Fi enabled devices at any given time, giving them unlimited access to information and educational material online.

A statement from Vodafone said the Wi-Fi Zone reaffirms Vodafone’s commitment to enhancing internet relevance in the country’s development.

The statement quoted Head of Corporate Communications at Vodafone Ghana, Carmen Bruce- Annan as saying “making the internet accessible is something we are committed to – it is important that in today’s world, people can use the internet and benefit from having knowledge at their fingertips,”

She said “our students are the new generation who will lead the internet
revolution if they aren’t already. We value the contribution we can make to ensure that our country continues to produce a technologically proficient generation.”

The campus Wi-Fi zone is the second major data initiative undertaken by Vodafone in addition to the largest internet café at the KNUST campus for both students and visitors.

It is also the latest addition to Vodafone’s list of Wi-Fi zones at convenient locations, including Villaggio apartments, Labadi Beach Hotel, Alisa Hotel, Best Western Hotel and at the Kotoka International Airport.

“Vodafone also announced the launch with a promotional offer of 100 browsing hours a month for only GHS 30,” the statement said.

It said accessing the service requires the use of a voucher which is available at any AfriqXpress Pay point on campus and at the Ghana Hostels.

Vodafone Ghana has scheduled similar projects which encourage internet access and usage throughout the year.
