Cityconect - Public Wi-Fi hotspot
Published on April 10, 2021 um 16:04
Explain your idea in details:
The Main aim to start the business idea is to connect a thousands of Kenyan rural towns and market centers with unlimited internet access at affordable cost, both at residential and at the town or market centers. To achieve this , a landing page is required since clients will access the wi-fi hotspot without physical visit the office, but to create their own accounts and password. Payment will be done via Mpesa till number, mobile money transfer by safaricom. This will enable me credit accounts of each client who will be accessing my network . The network will be open to all customers but terms and and condition must be adhered to failure to which will leads to disconnection.
Expected impact of your idea on sustainable development
Since the system will be open to public at affordable cost, that is kes 50 per 24 hours within selected location, it is expected that quite a good number of customers will get connected and improve problems of internet connectivity which is being experienced a times. Also people will bet connected at a lower cost hence save some for other usage.
Plans for implementation and sustainability
Since the project needs adequate capital of about kes 100,000 per wi-fi hotspot , I will look for support from Government and other organization financing youth enterprises for the implementation of the idea. When put into place the idea is projected to employ over 30 people. The project will generate enough income that will sustain the project.
I am a Kenyan Citizen aged 29 years form Kisumu county. My dreams to start a public wi-fi hotspot has not been put in place since 2019 due to lack of enough start up capital. I wish that my participation in this competition shall make my ideas put into realty and become a successful young entrepreneur.
