What does your company do?
Wifi.com.ng is the uncapped ISP for Africa.
How does it work?
Wifi.com.ng builds out solar powered base stations that customers get installed in their homes or business. 80% of new customers get a Wifi.com.ng account by calling and then are given a date for installation. Customers pay a setup cost as well as a monthly subscription.
What is the primary problem you are solving and why has no one solved it before?
One of the top 3 infrastructure challenges in Africa is internet connectivity (the other 2 are electricity and healthcare).
Wifi.com.ng is competing with the local Telcos which cap the data the customers use, and Wifi.com.ng is the only company that is offering uncapped internet access. Uncapped internet access is not something the telecoms are focusing on.
