As I write this article, I am using Enugu Wireless (Free) Internet Service. If you reside in the city of Enugu State of Nigeria, it is time for you to enjoy the three months free wireless internet service, courtesy of the Enugu State government and Zinox Technologies Limited.

The Enugu state wireless internet service called Coal City Wi-Fi will be available free for the first 3 months. After the initial 3 months Enugu state government promises to subsidize access cost to Coal City WiFi in order to make it affordable to Enugu residents.

The Enugu State Governor, Sullivan Chime is really committed to fulfilling his pledge to transform Enugu State into one of the Most technologically-advanced state in Nigeria. Before the launching of the Enugu Wireless internet service, getting access to internet was more of trouble to Enugu residents.

How do you get access to the 3 months free Enugu internet service?

For residents of Enugu to use the coal city 3 months free wireless internet service, they need to subscribe. You can subscribe to Coal City Wi-Fi at Community Resource Centre Enugu, opposite the new Enugu State Judiciary Headquarters or at Hotel Presidential Enugu. There you will be given a form to fill, after which you will be given a username, password, for accessing the wireless network

For you to use the coal city Wi-Fi, you will need a laptop computer or a desktop computer with a build in Wi-Fi or external wireless internet card that comes in many forms

The simplest way to access Coal City Wi-Fi is with a laptop with built in Wi-Fi. Most modern laptop computers comes with inbuilt Wi-Fi.

Even if you do not have a laptop with inbuilt Wi-Fi, you can still use your laptop to enjoy the coal city Wi-Fi. All you need to do is to buy a wireless card. I will advise you buy the USB wireless card. The USB wireless card can work on both laptop and desktop.

The major problem Enugu State residents are facing with the coal city Wi-Fi is that the internet service is not yet in most places. For you to browse with the coal city Wi-Fi, you have to go to certain location. I hope the coal city internet Wi-Fi will reach all nook and crannies in Enugu.

The benefit of the Enugu State Internet service cannot be overemphasized. The Enugu state wireless internet service will in no small measure enhance quick access to up-to date information across the web. Such access to information will give rise to fast technological development in Enugu State. The role of internet in technological development in Nigeria cannot be too stressed. The internet has a great role to play in the development of any nation both technologically and otherwise.

With the launch of the Enugu State wireless internet service, secondary and tertiary institutions (Enugu State University of Science and Technology ESUT, Enugu State University of Science and Technology College of Medicine (Paklane/Enugu State University of Science and Technology Teaching Hospital (ESUTCOM), Institute of Management and Technology Enugu (IMT), etc) domiciled in Enugu will now have easy access to internet. Such easy access to internet service will help provide an enhanced media for learning and research.

On the other hand, I am terrified about the negative use of the wireless internet service by yahoo yahoo boys in Enugu (internet fraudster) With such wireless internet service, most internet fraudsters will use the service to commit internet crimes. It is really a great challenge to Enugu state government to device a means of tracking cyber criminals who will want exploit the internet service negatively.
