HOW OUR MOBILE PHONE REALLY WORKS

Have you ever known anyone to ponder on how we manage to seamlessly communicate with others on our mobile phone? And other people do not seem to understand the wireless connection and a proper two-way conversation. Well, this might be a weird thing to ask or ponder on. But it is an abiding question at the back of the mind of many. Also, we do not have to necessarily assume this to be merely a technological wonder. We can actually get to know how this connection come about.

mobile phoneFor one, VTpass, as an online payment platform, leverages on this seamless connection to provide the best of service for her customers. So that just by logging on to www.vtpass.com, you can get your daily services. You are looking to buy airtime and data, pay electricity bills and cable tv subscriptions? Then www.vtpass.com will work just fine for you. So, coming to our phone and the endless calls we seem to always make and receive. Not just that, we can even get information on the Internet, play game, watch TV and integrate other devices into our phones. How does it all really work?

Now, the mobile phone is a radio, a sort-of higher grade radio. But a radio still.radio,phonee

In fact, when the cell phones were not available, people with means could install radio telephones in their cars. But then, there was one central antenna tower per city, and perhaps 25 channels available on that tower. What this meant was that meant that the phone in your car needed a powerful transmitter — big enough to transmit through a long distance. It also meant there just were not enough channels to go round for everybody. Only a few people could use the radio-telephone.

The innovation of the cellular system laid in the division of cities into small cells. This meant extensive frequency reuse across a city so that millions of people can use cell phones simultaneously.

phone,vtpassA walkie-talkie kind of works in the same way. So, understanding the walkie-talkie will lead to an understanding of the cell phone. But of course, the cell phone works in a more complex way.

Now, the walkie-talkie is a half-duplex device. That is, two people communicating on a walkie-talkie use the same frequency, so only one person can talk at a time. On the other hand, a cell phone is a full-duplex device. That means that you use one frequency for talking and a second, separate frequency for listening. Both people on the call can talk at once.

And then, a walkie-talkie typically has one channel. A typical cell phone can communicate on 1,664 channels or more. Also, while walkie-talkie can transmit about 1 mile (1.6 kilometres) using a 0.25-watt transmitter.Cell phones operate within cells, not transmitters, and they can switch cells as they move around. Cells give mobile phones incredible range. Someone using a cell phone can drive hundreds of miles and maintain a conversation the entire time because of the cellular approach.

phone,vtpassHence, the mobile or cell phones basically use cells to operate. The carrier chops up the city into cells. Cells are normally thought of as hexagons on a big hexagonal grid, like this. Basically, these are what we call masts

What further aids the cell connection is the use of low power transmitters. This allows for the same frequencies to be reused in nonadjacent cells. Each cell has about 56 voice channels available. In other words, in any cell, 56 people can be talking on their cell phone at one time. Analog cellular systems are considered first-generation mobile technology, or 1G. With digital transmission methods (2G), the number of available channels increases. And the increment has only continued with time.

Another thing you need to know is that all cell phones have special codes associated with them. These codes help identify the phone, the phone’s owner and the service provider. So these codes are responsible in some way for how calls are regulated by carriers.

phoneSo yes, there is a whole lot of story when it comes to how cell phones work. But you would have discovered from all indications that the cell phone we have in your hands or home is one wonderful device. And its usefulness cannot be overemphasized. Also, we cannot afford to take all the connection we have access to for granted. To keep connected, you are to regularly renew your airtime and data.

THE FUTURE OF TELEVISION IN THE 21ST CENTURY

The advent of television in the late 1920s indeed redefined the whole concept of entertainment. Its invention came about due to competitive efforts and crude experiments. But then, it has become the mass medium for entertainment, education, news, politics, gossip, and advertising. Its continued presence is due to its influence on public opinion. And it also has to do with the high level of entertainment it provides. But it is beginning to look like the popular pull TV used to have is beginning to wane. And this is largely due to the high rate of technological integration with the world of entertainment.

Really, the influx of social media platforms like Facebook, Whatsapp, Twitter, Instagram and the likes are things people now show more interest in. Also, the high image qualities of phones have made people more interested in making a show out of their lives. And yes, we cannot but include the internet video channels, of which YouTube is the most popular. Through these online video channels, you get to watch just about anything that catches your fancy. Another foremost factor is just how easy it is to reach these services and get the needed fun. For one, you can easily buy data or airtime just by logging on to www.vtpass.com.

All these easily prompt us to ponder on what the fate of television is in this 21st century that seems to have it all. Is it possible that the other popular means of entertainment and communication are going to flood the Television? Will TV ever become an extinct word with only a past glory to boast of?

Well, let’s consider the early days of television as documented by one to see just where the end might lie:

“Although television was first regarded by many as “radio with pictures,” public reaction to the arrival of TV was strikingly different from that afforded the advent of radio. Radio in its early days was perceived as a technological wonder rather than a medium of cultural significance. Television prompted a tendency to criticize and evaluate.

One aspect of early television that can never be recaptured is the combined sense of astonishment and glamour that greeted the medium during its infancy. At the midpoint of the 20th century, the public was properly agog about being able to see and hear actual events that were happening across town or hundreds of miles away. Relatively few people had set in their homes, but the popular fascination with TV was so pronounced that crowds would gather on the sidewalks in front of stores that displayed a working television set or two.”

This shows that people were more in for the fascination that accompanied the incoming of TV. This seems to insinuate that the immense attraction to the television has all the while has something to do with the societal glam. Hence, the societal shift to some other fields of attraction might have an effect on the future of TV.

But then, it is quite important to take into consideration the fact that Television programming has undergone quite a lot of evolution that makes it relevant to every present age, even the present age. First, towards the end of the 20th century, there was the move from the bland cable news entertainment to evening game shows. Then, when the game shows became slightly redundant, Reality TV was introduced and intensified in many parts of the world. Now, in the prime time of the century, seasonal or procedural dramas now thrive well. Also, modern soap-operas like Desperate Housewives, situation comedies and espionage/thriller dramas have also retained the relevance of the television. Wildlife and criminal documentaries can also be added to the list.

Somehow, it looks like Television as an entertainment phenomenon is here to stay.

And they do have a promising future even at this time when there are many attractions struggling for public spectacle. However, the argument is that “the most interesting new programs have been coming from the cable, not the networks. Not regulated by federal indecency rules or any censorship regulation, cable channels can and do present more “adult” content than their network counterparts.

Consequently, many have resorted to installing decoders to their televisions, which help them get just the right kind of entertainment. In fact, some televisions have inbuilt decoders. But because these cable TVs and decoders are owned and managed by private entrepreneurs, they have to be regularly subscribed into to be thoroughly enjoyed. But this is not much of a problem. You can pay your cable tv subscription and constantly renew it by logging on to www.vtpass.com.

VTpass is an online payment platform that allows you to pay for your everyday services in the most convenient way possible. In just three easy steps, you can pay your electricity bills, cable tv subscriptions, airtime and data subscriptions. Hence, you can enjoy all forms of entertainment possible. All you need do is log on to www.vtpass.com.

So technically, November is that last month where we get to make trailing memories and cross milestones. For businesses, it is just the right time of the year to start rounding off goals. And mapping out the last great feat to achieve.

We, at VTpass, earmark November as one great month to leave a lasting imprint on the hearts of our customers. In fact, this is the time of the year where we get to serve you most. You are still wondering what we do? Well, we are not tired of reiterating our effective service to you.

That said, you might want to know the very meaning and significance of November. Well, here is it all spelt out for you:

November derives from the Latin root novem- meaning “nine,” because in the Roman calendar there were only ten months in the year, and November was indeed the ninth month.

For many English speakers, November marks the point in the year when the cold begins to set in. And for those in the tropical region, the November Harmattan is something no one really looks forward to. This association is no doubt why November’s adjectival form, Novemberish, means “dreary,” and why the month’s original name in Old English was Blōtmōnað, literally “blood-month.”. It was the time when the early Saxons prepared for winter by sacrificing animals, which they then butchered and stored for food. November is also called Blōtmōnað in America, particularly during the weeks leading up to their turkey-filled Thanksgiving dinner.

But November need not be Novemberish and Harmattanish for us here. There is Black Friday to look forward to.

November symbols

  • November’s birthstones are the topaz (particularly, yellow) which symbolizes friendship and the citrine.
  • Its birth flower is the chrysanthemum

Make this November one to remember by integrating VTpass into your lifestyle. Just visit www.vtpass.com to do this. And begin to pay your MTN, AIRTEL, 9MOBILE and GLO airtime and data subscription with ease. Just as you can pay your electricity bills and DSTV, GOTV and STARTIMES subscription with perfect convenience.

WORLD SAVINGS DAY- How to keep up with your savings goal

One exciting part of childhood, you would remember, was having a piggy bank to throw in. It was a common trend amongst children who got stipends from their relatives. And it was quite a fun thing, saving for some rainy day which of course was nothing much. But then, growing up brings with it a lot of responsibilities. world saving dayAnd we inadvertently find ourselves spending more than we keep. Well, every October 31st is world savings day. And we should take out today to reflect on just how and why we should up our saving flair.

So yes, we all do not hope for a sore time in our lives. But then, things happen. And what we have stowed away is what keeps us on our toes for those times we need that extra back up and support. But then, there are more reasons why we need to save: 

  • To start up a business
  • For some short-term purpose like catering for a ceremony
  • For long-term purposes like building a land or house

And yes, you can save to take care of daily expenses. Rather than spending randomly, money can be kept aside to cater for your everyday services like phone airtime and data subscriptions.

It is quite hard to cut down on the few luxuries we allow ourselves like the extra packs of chocolate or home appliances we could just as well avoid.

EIGHT REASONS WHY YOUR WEBSITE IS SLOW

A website is a collection of similar web pages made up of contents which are multimedia in nature. Normally, a website is also identified with a common domain name. And it is usually accessible on the Internet as well as the LAN. A website is meant to perform any such function ranging from personal to a public function. One such publicly functional website is www.vtpass.com.

This website emanates from the stable of VTpass. And it has been particularly designed to help customers make bills payment with ease and speed. Just by logging in to www.vtpass.com, you can pay for your phone airtime, electricity bills, data subscriptions and cable tv subscriptions. And it happens in just three easy clicks- Log on, Select, Pay.

And yes, if you are looking to take whatever you do in a global sphere. Then one good way to do this is by building a website. The advantages of owning a website are much more than can be imagined. It gives a lot of exposure to your business or whatever you are promoting as well as opens up a platform through which your customers can be effectively and conveniently served.

But what happens when your supposed website is so slow that rather than blow out your business, it keeps people away from visiting your website.

websiteYou would want to do something about this. I mean, it can do a lot of harm to your business. But first, you would need to know just why the website is slow.

 

Here are ten reasons why your designed website can be having hiccups:

  1. TOO MANY IMAGES

Images are the spice of any website. They supply the aesthetical appeal to the techno feel of websites. But just like too many hands spoil the cooking, too many images also makes a website move from simply wow to very quirky and queasy. But not just that, it makes a website really slow. This is quite simple to understand. When someone’s mind is clogged with too many irrelevant memories, the very important ones might be skipped and issues might arise. So if you do not want to give your website a lot to think about, which slows down its performance, then avoid putting too many images.

  1. WHEN THE SERVER PERFORMANCE IS BAD

Sometimes, the host provider can be faulty or there might be an issue with the server. There is quite nothing you can do about this except wait for the server to be restored to full performance. But if this issue occurs more time than you can bear, then you had better change your host provider. There are lots of options when it comes to web hosting services. For instance, we have Bluehost, Ipage, Sitebuilder and a whole lot more.

  1. websiteWHEN THE CSS (STYLING) IS TOO MUCH

You want your website to look chic and mind-blowing, so you tell your web designer to give it all it takes. In giving it all it takes, a lot of Cascading Stylesheet (CSS) efforts must have gone into use. Hence, you have all the floating fonts, the colourful styles and dynamic layouts. But the price you pay to get all these incorporated might be more than you are willing to take on. For a lot of this styling affects the website and makes it terribly slow. To rectify this, you might want your web designer to take a closer look at the codes and take down the things overwhelming the site.

  1. TOO MANY VIDEOS

Similar to the use of excessive images, too much video uploads can also hamper the productivity of the website. This is even worse off as these videos weigh more than an image.

  1. TOO MANY REQUESTS

When the visitors on a website are required to make a lot of clicks, enters, log in before performing any operation, the website becomes slow and finds it burdening to respond quickly to all the requests.

website

  1. TOO MANY PLUGINS ON YOUR WEBSITE

This is especially for those operating a CMS like WordPress, Drupal and Jumla. Adding many functions and installing a lot of plug-ins can cause a website to take time to come up. Slightly related to this is the use of outdated CMS. Although this is not a regular problem, it is still something to take note of and check up on if your website is slow.

  1. BAD QUERY

Imagine sitting in the living room and then needing a spoon to scoop up the ice-cream you just ordered. Because you are too tired or busy watching a soap to move your limbs, you tell your younger brother to go fetch you a spoon. Somehow, your brother ends up carting up to you the whole cutlery in the house. Of course, you are surprised, but your brother isn’t because he is quite sure that bringing the entire cutlery in the house was exactly what you asked him to do. He might be right or wrong, but whatever the case, what you got yourself was a bad query.

This can also occur with a website. Once a website gets to the point that the mySQL sends out bad queries, then that website is bound to be slow or even fail. You might want to consult with the tech experts to address.

website

  1. TOO MUCH TRAFFIC

When a website is being visited a lot, then the website might crumble under the excess weight of visitors and start operating at a less than optimal level. This is actually a good thing, though. No need to worry about this, it only means you are one step closer to achieving your intended purpose than you were yesterday.

In all, VTpass stays a reliable platform through which you can conveniently get your services easily. You want to pay for your electricity bills and DSTV, STARTIMES AND GOTV cable tv subscriptions? Or do you want to recharge your phone with MTN, GLO, AIRTEL, 9MOBILE airtime and renew your data subscriptions? Then just log on to www.vtpass.com.

It’s simple, safe and reliable.

VTPASS WALLET

Our passports, ATM Cards, lipsticks, identity cards, movie tickets,  these are part of what our wallet contains.

But there is one thing we must not fail to mention- money. Subsequently, money is one very important thing featured in our wallet. But without doubt, though the wallet is for safe keeping, it is usually the very thing we misplace most. This can be due to our own carelessness and forgetfulness. It can also be due to theft, which is usually the most common situation. This is justification enough for the not too recent cashless policy that now is a global practice.

Maybe you still carry cash around in your physical wallet because you see it as an extra burden having to deposit, withdraw, transfer etc. And worse still, it can be stressful having to queue at the ATM stand. This is especially annoying when you need the money to pay for a service.

Well, there are a lot of people who have similar complaints as this. And for this people, the VTpass wallet is always the best solution for them.

JOS PROFILED ON VTPASS

If there is ever any one activity that will always keep people connected and tickled, it’s travelling. Well, not that kind of travelling you do to go see your relatives or take a new wife. But the adventurous, thrilling travels.Really, it’s fun to visit places way different from what you are used to. You not only get the tingle of changing locations and living a different life in a different time frame, you also get to learn many new, exciting things as well as pick up on some habits and friends that might just change your life. So, if you are looking for a new place to explore and spread your wings, you might just want to try out Jos.

Jos is the capital of Plateau State. And Plateau is one of the thirty-six states in Nigeria. Jos, as a city, has quite a reckoning reputation and heritage which have earned it a place in the heart of locals and other expatriates.

josBefore we get to talk more about Jos, you would like to know that VTpass identifies with this great city and its people.

Just by logging on to www.vtpass.com, you can, from anywhere in Jos, pay for your electricity bills, phone airtimes, data subscriptions, cable tv subscriptions and lots more.

In any case, here are certain things you should know about Jos.

History

josEvery place has a history, no doubt, and Jos is not excluded. Jos is said to have been the natural home of the Nok people. These Nok, who were mostly artisans have since not been found on the Jos grounds. Instead, a group of farming population now inhabit the place. Also, the area gained credence when tin was discovered in its vicinity. This drew the attention of the British colonials in those days. And it also caused a lot of people to migrate there. So that, at the moment, the city actually contains a mix of tribes and people. Even till now, Jos is known as the Tin City.

josName

Again, it would surprise you to know that this city was not exactly named Jos. According to some historians, the original Nok dwellers named it Gwosh. But when a group of Hausa migrants came, they could not quite get to say the word Gwosh. Instead, what they were able to pronounce was Jos. And the name just stuck over time. Not only that, other historians say Jos is a clip from the full name Jasad. The British who could not say Jasad or Jas just as well called it Jos.

Population

josFrom the 2006 census, it is easy enough to say that Jos has a population of 900,000 people. But with the years gone by, this number must have increased. This is not to talk of the constant incoming of people who cannot get enough of the place.

  • Tourist Centres

  • josTalking about those who can’t get enough, Jos is a sweetheart site for most tourists. And it is also a choice getaway for holiday seekers and vacationists. Why is this so? Well, there is the numerous beautiful places in Jos to start with. Talk of the National Museum, the Wildlife Park, the Rayfield golf centre and resort. Also, we have the University of Jos, with its teaching hospital. You want to feel the pump of the academic world, then this is a place to visit.
  • jos One particular place to go see is the Shere Hills, with its Riyom rocks that just about looks animated. Then the Ahmadu Bello Roundabout, the Pottery Hill, Jos-Bukuru dam are places for art and science oriented ones to take delight in. We can go on and on talking about places to see. The bottom line is a tourist can never get bored in Jos.

Jos Electric

josSo, all of these sightseeing and fun will not go down well if there is no stable energy support to go by. Well, Jos Electricity Distribution Company is that radiant part of Jos that supplies electricity to the people. When you go to Jos, visiting them is not such a bad idea. But if you just want to pay your bills, you do not need to go that far. All you need do is log on to www.vtpass.com, pay your bill and just like that, you get constant electricity.

Also, you can pay for other services like your MTN, 9MOBILE, GLO, AIRTEL  phone airtimes and data subscriptions. You can also pay for your DSTV, STARTIMES AND GOTV subscriptions.

So yes, you must admit that a great place without a great food culture is not great. Then you would like to know that Jos is not lacking when it comes to food. For one, there are new, great, delicious dishes you can pick from the city like the Habib Yoghurt, Tuwo, Kunu etc. Also, there are really nice places to go if you want to be treated to awesome intercontinental dishes. Located in the Railway Terminus market is the Felak Burger Bistro and Meat Shop. Apart from this, the Net Cafe also treats you to great desserts. And for a great main meal, just find your to The Lass. Again, one good thing about this place is that food items, especially agricultural products, are very affordable.

Security

josIn spite of the religious and ethnic clashes that sometimes occurs in this area, there is still a lot of peace and love between locales in the city. Also, the city is very accommodating and accepts guests well.

Climate

josNow, ask any tourist and one good news they will tell you about Jos is the climate. Jos is always very cool and temperate even at high altitudes. So that, every once in a while, snowfalls occur. The cool climate and airy atmosphere is one feat no other place in the tropical region of Africa can quite boast of.

Airports

If you already are thinking of visiting this amazing place, then you might like to know about Jos’ main airport. Yakubu Gowon Airport, that’s the name. However, there is also an internal airport called Jos Airport that transports people from Lagos to Jos.

  • So, at any time you decide to take a leap and cross over to Jos, remember this. VTpass, with its convenient online payment platform www.vtpass.com, will always be everywhere welcoming you with ease and in grand style.

IKEJA ELECTRIC DISTRIBUTION CENTRE

Ikeja electricity distribution centre is one of the eleven distribution centres responsible for supplying energy to Nigerians across the country. Indeed, they are one formidable distribution centres. In the sense that they supply light to the very economic hub of the country, Lagos. But there are certain things you would want to know and establish about them.

THINGS YOU SHOULD KNOW ABOUT IKEJA ELECTRICITY DISTRIBUTION CENTRE

  1. Privatised: This is already a foreknowledge. So, right from the 1st of November, 2013, the power sector underwent a bold privatisation reform. Really, this has helped decentralise and put the supply of electricity in the hands of private people. Also, this is made possible due to the NEDC/KEPCO Consortium
  2. ; Largest: You would also want to know that Ikeja Electric is the largest distribution company. As they have over 600,000 customers.
  3. Means of Payment: What is astounding about them is how they have made possible easy and convenient means of payment. Vtpass just happens to be at the forefront of these credible means of payment. Just by logging in to www.vtpass.com, you can conveniently pay for your Ikeja Electric bills. And this happens in just three easy steps- Log on, Select, Pay.
  4. Ikeja is not Eko- Also, you must know that Ikeja Electric is not the same thing as Eko Electric. And they definitely do not operate in the same capacity. Most importantly, however, is the fact that they do not operate in the same location. While Ikeja Electric works for those in the Mainland, Eko Electric applies for those on the Island. Consequently, your area of living largely determines just where you are to pay your electricity bills.

These are the locative units controlled by Ikeja Electric DISCO.

SERVICE DELIVERY: HOW TO AVOID ANY DISAPPOINTMENT

Have you ever had something fail just at the point you need it? No salt just when you need to season your food. A massive brake failure just when you need to travel. A funny, heavy downpour of rain when you had planned to take your woman or man to somewhere ‘special’. Name it. Disappointments can be frustrating. But what is more frustrating than not being able to get a service just when you need it- airtime, data, electricity, and constant TV time. That’s pretty frustrating, especially when you need to make a life-changing call or send that one email that will turn things around for you.

service, vtpassAnd what is even irking is that these things that seem quite easy to get sometimes will not be accessible for very funny reasons. For one, it might be a public holiday and the all available outlets to get any of these services might be under locks. Again, you find yourself in any place where getting to buy recharge card, paying your electricity bill or renewing your tv subscription is as good as walking about, looking for a pin in the whole of Sahara Desert. You might be a little bit under the weather and incapable of going around or it might just be that the recharge card you end up buying has been used!
