If your community doesn’t have access to broadband, ECO will facilitate the installation and maintenance of a Wi-Fi system that will provide subsidised broadband.
What will I receive?
The school receives a subsidised broadband service.
In return you are obliged to:
- Host the infrastructure
- Do no harm to the infrastructure
- Report faulty infrastructure to the Service Provider
Community User Experience
Community users learn about ECO through word of mouth, local advertising, at school and through a Wi-Fi pop up when in range
Higher end SME or household users can purchase a Wi-Fi extender/repeater for fixed building use which extends range and power
Other users simply connect via their smartphone
Via the App, users can buy ECOs, as happens with other Wi-Fi hotspots. Users pay per GB, not per hour
The App holds ECOs that can be transferred to other users on a Peer to Peer basis. This allows users who do not have banking facilities to acquire ECOs from local merchants by exchanging cash for ECOs
