Few days ago, Mavin CEO, Don Jazzy expanded his business empire by announcing the Flobyt free WiFi services in Lagos Nigeria. The Mavin boss with his new Co-founder, Dele Ofuye announced Flobyt which is a free WiFi service, fast and reliable to use. The WiFi connections are available in areas such as parks, eateries, restaurants, taxis, buses and many more. The Flobyt free WiFi services is only available in four states across the country – Lagos, Ibadan, PH and Abuja.
Co-Founded Dele Ofuye said at a press conference held in Lagos, “Flobyt is 100% free for the users and our partner locations, all you have to do is walk in and log in. In fact, our working slogan is ‘Don’t use your data, use ours.’
We know that this is not the first free WiFi proposition in Nigeria. However, we have state of the art technology, speed, security and speed to make it an enduring one.”
Flobyt Free WiFi Services Availability
Flobyt is currently available in these locations in Lagos, Nigeria:
- RoadStar Burger, Lekki
- Bar Enclave, Ilupeji
- FoodHouse, Ikosi
- White House, Yaba
- Lounge 9a, Anthony
- Massimo Bar, Ikeja
- Grace’s Cakes, Ogba
- Jazzment Salon, Lekki’
- KayzPlace BarberShop, Lekki
- Amala Express, Lekki
One issue, I have about this is most of these places are where the affluent peole of the society already live. The people in these locations would not really care about using free WiFi as they can afford any data volume they want. Services like these would be more appreciated in places like Ajegunle, Ikeja, Ojuelegba, etc.

Is Flobyt Services Really Free?
Like the saying goes, “Nothing is free, even in Freetown”. Flobyt are saying their services is free and we have to believe them. Most of the places the WiFi services are located are places you must pay to even sit down. Would you just go to an eatery or a barbershop to sit down because of free WiFi without doing nothing?
Nevertheless, this is a well thought move by Don Jazzy as freebies is one of the fastest ways to get Nigerians. It is also most certain there will be ads appearing when you are surfing through the WiFi, this is not really bad. However, public WiFi systems are not always secure and are targets for hackers, to stay safe I would recommend you mainly download movies, stream songs, read your favourite blogs or check Instagram pictures than using the Flobyt Free WiFi services to login into your sensitive accounts.
