Wifi grids feature

the thing there is the first is already set up, now scaling is left the first set up is like lost because i just buy data to share to users for the demo in the video which is coming soon. the first demo covers only 4 house including the one stay in. its basically a free wi-fi but will redirect user to a little page i created to collect there mails if there interested in buying its as cheap in feature

why did i said its a lost

i could not afford unlimited internet service provider so i bought 12 gb of internet just to share and see peoples thought about it, and what people will say about it so far i have interviewed 4 people who connected to the network and are ready to buy if started which i will talk about in coming video

scale
why chose the location
wheel for starting, thats where i leave now and there are more than 80,000 people in population, university and airport. those university don’t get free wifi and for the survey i did with the university student lots are interested. video coming soon.

funding
so i started indiegogo page which is not live yet till i upload video. but please. if any one knows investor please please connect me my facebook is https://www.facebook.com/itzareous because i think this would change every thing for Nigeria.

what is this

Areous i’m finally back here. The one point I see that I was looking for is “$450/month” for unlimited wifi. This is my problem here. The second this became successful, the data provider would pull the plug on you…

Yes your right Steven Reubenstone and that is why we won’t be getting the unlimited from data providers, we would be getting ours from big network providers, that is isp who provides for school and large organizations and that is why it’s so expensive.

Grids is already successful. I get new message on my what’s app and Facebook every day about when grids would be launched.

And since you traveled me and my team have been trying our possible best we have been trying to contact investors for our first round of invest of 10,000$ with 10% for our first round so that we can scale to 1000 users and register our company. Right now the infrastructure we have can only power 250 users. Gotten little reply yet. Almost there.

Yea but and please let me state again – my tone – because it helps entrepreneurs the fastest – is to take the Don’t F Up Your Startup mentality…and I am not saying I am a genius however you are basically proposing to string a bunch of wifi routers/modems together in a certain structure and feed lowcost data to people in african villages. You would buy that data “whole sale from an ISV”.

That’s a very cool hustle. It’s even commendable and may get you an article in a paper, or attract real attention. But Investors invest only in businesses or potentially a charitable cause if they are philanthropists. If you had special wifi antennaes that broadcast wifi more efficiently across nigerian terrain – or access to a special sattelite that broadcasted a signal in a unique way (intellectual property) then there would be a business.

Explain to me how this is not just a cool hustle, but a scalable business? If you look at it from another angle…if you got any traction – any group of guys could get together and copy your model ridiculously fast – like 24 hours a few smart developers could buy a few modems and string together this and just crush you out.

You need competitive advantage to have an investable business…where is that competitive advantage?

Maybe im completely wrong but this is how i see it from an investor angle.

btw you mentioned elon musk on instagram dm – his first venture with ZIP 2 – it had intellectual property – his mapping technology for newspapers was owned by him and could not be replicated over night.

(i am not discouraging you either i just want to hear your answers first before i give guidance on how to find funding and push this forward)

Steven Reubenstone those are not simple wifi routers and modems we are thinking to use core router and wifi access points not routers
