Due to massive demand of WIFI by male students living in the school hostel, the school WIFI has now been extended to male hostel in Alex Ekwueme Federal University Ndufu-Alike Ikwo by the school management. All male students who paid for the internet fee (N6,500) can now be able to access the school WIFI at hostel with their login details.
Students who lived in male hostel have been complaining that since the WIFI was brought to the school, there were not able to access it while in hostel. The major complaint was that they paid N6,500 for internet fee and still not comfortably making use of it.
A 200 level student by name Agugo Karl Henry popularly known as Henry has commended the action of the school management. He said “I am very happy now as I can browse and do my assignments online without subscribing on my own or going to a cyber café. I’m really enjoying it”.
History of AE-FUNAI WIFI
AE-FUNAI students started making use of the school WIFI on the year 2018. The password was first distributed to the current 200 level students who are currently in their 2019/2020 academic session. The students were asked to pay N6,500 for internet service during their registration which they did. According to the early users, the WIFI speed was about at most 125kb per second. Currently the WIFI speed has increased from about 125kb to over 300kb per second.
The WIFI was installed in male hostel on Saturday 19th October 2019 and started working on Monday 21st October 2019 by 9:41am. Okoronkwo Vincent, a 200level student in AE-FUNAI was the first person to make use of the WIFI in male hostel with a broad smile immediately after the connection on 21st October 2019 by 9:42am.
In my own words, the installation of WIFI in the school should be a boost in the student’s academic to not only those who live in the school hostel (both male and female) but also to all students to paid and registered for it.
