Surfline partners with Bolt to provide WiFi for drivers, passengers
Surfline Communications, Ghana’s leading 4G LTE internet service announced today, the availability of Wi-Fi services on Bolt ride-hailing service.
Bolt users will experience Surfline’s full 4G LTE internet service when they board a connected vehicle.
Surfline and Bolt’s partnership enables drivers on Bolt efficient connectivity while providing riders with free internet on their commute.
This is powered Surfline’s new device called the ‘Car Fi’, an industry first that takes mobility to another level in Ghana.
“Integrated mobility service providers provide a more seamless customer experience, but this experience is incomplete without great internet service.
“This is why Surfline, Ghana’s leading 4GLTE provider is partnering to provide its internet service for commuters to enjoy from this June,” David Afugani, Head of Commercial Business at Surfline communications said.
“We are committed to building high quality, seamless end-user experience via these mobility partners and working even harder to expand our network to other parts of the country,” he added.
Joseph Mallet, the products and acquisitions manager, said the phenomenon of ride-hailing like that of Bolt is here to stay.
He added that it is Surfline’s intention to connect people and businesses with Ghana’s leading 4G LTE service provider.
“Our mission is to provide safe, affordable and reliable rides and we wanted to bridge the gap between bad network experience on the driver side, and improving customer experience on Bolt rides offering them free wifi in vehicles,” Nonso Onwuzulike, Bolt country manager, said.
Bolt has already started distributing the Car Fi devices to the drivers and plans to reach more than 1500 vehicles the end of the year.
Additionally, there is a special Bolt package for drivers which gives unlimited internet for only ¢50 a month.
Drivers can also outrightly purchase the device directly from Surfline at a subsidized rate, and get access to the Bolt data package.
