Union Bank of Nigeria Plc. in conjunction with CBC Netcomms, launched Stallion Hotspot - Nigeria’s first street WiFi network on Wednesday, August 10, 2016 at Road Chef Drive- Thru, Lekki, Lagos.

Stallion Hotspot is the Bank’s initiative to provide free and fast wireless internet connection for residents, visitors and commuters and is available on and around Admiralty Way, Lekki, Lagos.

“In this mobile age, we need to stay connected to loved ones, businesses and the world in general. To this end, Union Bank customers can carry out their transactions in real-time via UnionMobile. Stallion Hotspot is another simpler and smarter solution to help our customers and communities do more of what matters while on the go” said Ogochukwu Ekezie- Ekaidem, Head of Corporate Affairs & Communications at Union Bank while speaking on the launch of the hotspot.

Olu Fadairo, Sales Manager of CBC Netcomms said “Stallion Hotspot is a unique solution as it has been deployed in an uncontrolled, open-air environment and is arguably the first metro WiFi service in West Africa. As with all innovations, we will continue to optimize the service and are available to support users on 09094998830”.

New Stallion Hotspot users are required to login and register, after which they are prompted with a SMS to their registered phone number with a one time password (OTP). Returning users simply log in with their registered email address and password to access free connectivity.

With over 700 ATM centres across Nigeria and secure mobile and online banking platforms - UnionMobile and UnionOnline, the Bank continues to adapt to the rapidly changing social economy to better serve its current and prospective customers.
