He explained that the Ecoroam Internet provides executives who are always on the move access to corporate data and applications from anywhere in the world.

“It allows users to access the Internet via high speed broadband connections at an amazing 100,000 hotspots including 852 international airports, 11,200 hotels, 40,000 shopping malls, fast food outlets to name a few,” Mr. Adedeji said.

He pointed out that the beauty of this solution lies in the simplicity of its use expressed in the ability to access all these hotspots around the world through one single account and for a flat rate in 100 countries.

Ecoroam, he further said, provides Global Packet Radio Service (GPRS) access in over 40 countries worldwide.

He emphasised that with the Ecoroam voice service, Nigerian travellers would now be able to roam their local numbers internationally in 150 countries while bypassing roaming rates.
