2014 set to be year of Wi-Fi

28 November 2013, 10:42

Nairobi - Ruckus Wireless, the technology firm, projected a surge in the uptake of Wi-Fi in the country in the coming year.

This follows the prominence of such wireless connections across a number of sectors locally.

Michael Fletcher, the Sales Director for Ruckus Wireless sub-Saharan Africa noted that with swelling demand for constant access, 2014 would be a “breakout” year for Wi-Fi.

“While we have seen a large uptake from the hospitality and education sectors, we are likely to see more Wi-Fi in public places and hotels who would be forced to provide good quality Wi-Fi and in most cases for free just like hot water,” said Fletcher.

The uptake of Wi-Fi wireless connections has been on the increase in the country as competition among industries intensifies.

Hotels were among the first business premises to install WI-Fi internet connection, which was quickly adapted by beauty parlous and entertainment joints.

Other institutions such as banks followed suit and the Passenger Service Vehicles have not been left behind in that regard as installation of Wi-Fi becomes a trend.

The majority of the commuters within the capital city, Nairobi, have internet-enabled handsets, which enable them to enjoy the WI-Fi services.

Wi-Fi is a popular technology that allows an electronic device to exchange data or connect to the internet wirelessly using radio waves.
