Constant connectivity to the internet has become a mode of survival for billions of people around the world and Nigeria is no exception. According to a 2017 digital report, Nigeria’s internet penetration has reached 51% making it the 2nd highest African country with a growing number of internet users. This means more and more Nigerians are gaining access to the internet each day. With the growth in internet users, there is a need for mobile networks or internet service providers to deliver faster speed and better connection to its users.
One challenge internet users often face outside of speed is being able to stay connected even when they are travelling across cities within and outside Africa. Most people are only able to roam their calls but still struggle with using their data across countries. Thanks to the revolutionary CC1 Mi-fi by CloudCover, this will now be a problem of the past.
CloudCover was founded in 2016 as a multi network mobile data service company. Unlike other 4G LTE internet service providers, they offer products such as the CC1 Mi-Fi which was built on revolutionary virtual SIM technology that enables the user to connect to the most reliable network in any city they find themselves in.
