Broadband internet service provider, SWIFT Networks, has extended its free Wi-Fi service to the Federal College of Education, Akoka, Lagos.

The Red Cheetah free Wi-Fi service went live at the institution last Tuesday.

In a statement made available to Business Insider Sub-Saharan Africa, Charles Anudu, the Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer of the company, said the service, which is supported by revenue from leading global brands, was conceived to make fast and free broadband service available to Nigerians, thereby helping to deepen broadband penetration in support of the National Broadband Plan of the Federal Government.

Our free service aims to connect Nigerians to the global digital society through access to a fast, free and secure broadband service that consequently create measurable value for the excellent brands that make the service possible. We believe that access to information, especially in an academic environment, remains a key driver for academic excellence and innovation.
