Public Wi-Fi is the installation of internet hotspot in public places for free internet connection. It is of no doubt that internet rules the world today. Virtually every aspect of the human activities, is directly or indirectly controlled by the internet. Hence, many people cannot afford to enjoy the good things it offers. Come to think of it. For one to browse on the internet to get information for one thing or the other, to catch fun on the various social media platforms, to access a school portal, to book a flight ticket, to get updates on news, transact business, bank online and a whole lots of other things that can be done online, one have to be connected to the internet via the data of his/her smart device as provided by the network provider of the smart device.
However, public wi-Fi hotspot have several success stories over this.
Just as individuals do make subscription on their smart device(s) via their network provider so also Public wi-Fi are being subscribed and placed in public places for consumption by the general public. In developed countries like; UK, USA, Public wi-Fi are placed via router/Access points by the government, in public places like airport, public schools, parks, stadia and so on. This is to enable users of such places to have steady internet connectivity. This is because many people may not have the financial potential to make subscription all the time, and sometimes there may be emergencies in such places and one need to have access to the internet to get information, and at same time give information of any eventuality.
In public places like airport and parks where people are new, they need to communicate and integrate with the people and new environment. Public wi-Fi connection will aid the visitors to conveniently do that, especially in a case where the local network of the person may fail in the new environment.
It is obvious that in a place where such is provided, people will be more attracted and be willing to patronize them, hence improving productivity and revenue to the government.
In schools, especially higher institutions of learning, Public Wi-Fi is unavoidably a necessity. This is because modern learning is moving away from the tradition method of learning to internet based learning platform, where students and lecturers are expected to make research, participate in online conference, e-lectures, do online assignments and lots more.
Distance or e-learning platform can also be improved with the aid of Public wi-Fi connection. E-learning offers flexibility and convenience to educational system, since one can partake in it at it’s pace from anywhere in the world. Which in return reduces the rate of illiteracy in the country. All this and more is achievable if and only if the institution have access to Public wi-Fi.
However, if it will be put in place in our learning institutions, students, teachers, staffs, and people who are unable to afford high charges on data rates, can use Public Wi-Fi hotspots set up by the government to cover up.
In the same vein, state or central government owned libraries, museums, stadia and recreation centres will not be left out. Such places will be more enjoyable and attractive if it will be equipped with Public wi-Fi hotspots. The government can also choose to monetize these Public Wi-Fi hotspots at nominal rates per individual usage which can serve as an extra income for utilization elsewhere. In this way it will generate income to the government.
Apart from public places, private establishment and business owners can do same by providing Wi-Fi hotspot in their business places.
In a commercial setting, shops, cafes, markets, restaurants, hotels, shopping malls and other outlets of service can also provide Public Wi-Fi, provided that the security constraints are taken care of.
