INTERNET BROADBAND AND HOW IT WORKS

If you were the regular office guy or babe who has to stare at a laptop 24/7 and go global right from your small cubicle or closet at work, then you would already realise that you cannot, no, you must not rely on just any data provider to get vital work stuff done. There are various ways to buy data to keep your laptop plugged into the rest of the world and work more effectively. And one of these ways is through the many available internet broadband options.

Whatever the case, getting a good data connection and staying tuned has been made easier to access through the fast leading online payment platform, www.vtpass.com. At www.vtpass.com, you can easily make payments for your phone airtimes, data subscriptions, electricity bills, cable TV subscriptions. And subsequently, you can pay for your Broadband services.

When it comes to the internet connection, broadband is used to refer to speedy internet access that stays on at any point you want it to. It is also faster than the other conventional ways of accessing the net. In Nigeria, internet broadband has not always been much of an option until the recent past. But right now, Nigeria is one of the leading nations in Africa to which the superfast 4G LTE Broadband has been introduced. Despite still being a nestling sector in telecommunications, there are quite a few good companies who provide the 4G LTE Broadband services in Nigeria. And who are they? That’s what you are about to find out.

LISTS OF TOP 4G LTE BROADBAND PROVIDERS IN NIGERIA

SMILE COMMUNICATIONS NIGERIA

smile,broadband,vtpassDespite being a newcomer in offering broadband services, Smiles has become one of the three biggest contenders in the market. More than that, they offer the widest range of internet coverage. Starting from Oyo state and then moving to Lagos state, Smiles has grown at quite an admirable rate.

Recently, Smiles has partnered with Samsung to produce the first 4G LTE complaint Smartphone in Nigeria. Not just that, the portability of their broadband options and its affordability for all have made many say they are indeed the first 4G LTE service provider in Nigeria.

SWIFT NETWORK LIMITED

spectranet,broadband,vtpassThis is yet another very fast broadband service provider. They also have the advantage of being one of the first internet service providers in Nigeria. This is so because they commenced their operations in 2002. Usually, their service stations are very much accessible. Also, they have several unlimited data plans that are readily available. The one disadvantage to this network is that they are based mainly in Lagos and its availability.

SPECTRANET

spectranet,vtpassThe list will not be complete without the mention of Spectranet. They are one of the abiding internet service providers in Nigeria. And they operate at the seats of economic growth and expansion- Lagos and Abuja. Spectranet operates in the same manner as Swift.

Who knows, but you might just get some useful tips on how to meet and know the right one.

API: LET VTPASS.COM SERVE YOU WELL

The first question that will be on your lips is what is an API?

Well, here is a textbook definition:

An API stands for “Application Programming Interface.” An API is a set of commands, function, protocols and objects that programmers can use to create software or interact with an external system. It provides developers with standard commands for performing common operations so they do not have to write the code from scratch.

But not all of us are computer geeks or nerds. Ok, most of us are not. So here are simple, fun ways of understanding what an Application Programming Interface (API)  is:

You buy an extension, which you intend using to charge your phone, laptop and the likes. For the extension to work, you are not going to plug straight to the transformer next to your house, or the wire transmitting electric current to you, right? No, you need an interface. Something that can stand in the gap and collect the energy from the electric current down to you. You need a socket. This socket which is usually connected to a wire on the wall serves as an interface to which you plug your extension. This in response to the interface, enables you to charge your phone and any other thing.

The API is just like that socket, except it is something you can’t see and it has more to do with the internet world.

ANOTHER EXAMPLE

You want to buy rice and chicken from your favourite restaurant. Now, do you just go into the kitchen where it is being cooked or stored? And then demand a plate of rice and chicken? Of course, not, there is an attendant, a waiter. In this case, an interface that delivers your request for a hamburger to the kitchen staff. They in response to your request, hand over the food to the waiter, who will, in turn, place it before you. And then, lunch or dinner is served. Or breakfast, if you are the one that does late meals or does not fancy the routine bread, tea and egg.

The waiter has served as an API, relaying messages for you all in a bid to deliver a service. You must have guessed by now that in the real sense, the person making the request is not a person, but codes. Just like the waiter and kitchen staff responding to the requests are are all codes.

So, simply put, APIS are messengers that take requests from a user end, go to the right quarters to deliver the message.  And then relays back an answer to the user again. In a technical sense, you use an API when you employ the code written by someone else or their database for your own purpose, or to service your own website.

WHY DO I NEED TO KNOW API?

There are a lot of ways knowing how the API works can profit an average online business person. Say, you have a natural hair blog that sometimes needs to display videos. You might not have these videos at all. But by integrating Youtube’s API to your site, these videos can be displayed on your site.

It is through this the API that many videos on YouTube get featured on sites that clearly are not Youtube. Another easy way of using API is having a website where you need people to sign in or login. Because you know Google or Facebook already have the sign in feature which is way professional.  On proper request, you can simply use Google or Facebook’s sign in feature. So that, what you will have on your own website is “sign in with Google or Login with Facebook”. You might be nodding in understanding right now. That’s good, but there is something even better.

Prior to the English premier league 2017 which is set to start on the 11th of August 2017 and end on the 13th of May 2018, unanticipated events have been taking place.

And catch the excitement firsthand even as the world’s trending, top coaches are once more about to go head to head with one another. Antonio Conte, Chelsea’s coach who plunged Chelsea into a sweeping victory during the last premier league has been described as the finest manager, and maybe one of the best coaches in the world.

DEFENDING CHAMPION, CHELSEA, WINS CONTENDERS

As gratifying as this is, it has won Chelsea stronger contenders for this year’s premier league 2017. Pep Guardiola, Manchester City’s coach, has proven that he will be one hard nut to crack this season. Due to his performance last season, the French newspaper L’Equipe has preferred him over Conte. They have named him best football coach. There are other upcoming coaches that might prove a strong challenge to Chelsea in this year’s premier league.

TRANSFER DEALS FOR ENGLISH PREMIER LEAGUE 2017-18

CHELSEA

VTPASS WELCOMES MATIC TO MANCHESTER UNITED IN THE 2017 PREMIER LEAGUE
NEMANJA MATIC BIDS FAREWELL TO CHELSEA

The transfer deals this season has been super terrific, even shocking! Nemanja Matic, one trending midfielder of defending champions, Chelsea FC has been transferred to Manchester United after a £40 million bid on him. Most fans see this as quite a strange action, considering Matic’s remarkable input last season. But it seems Conte has his eyes on a bigger fish.  He wrestles with Manchester United over Bale, who is currently playing for Real Madrid.

Not only that, Chelsea is bidding for Southampton’s star player, Virgil Van Dijk. But their transfer deal is not about to go down without a hitch. Liverpool, Manchester City and Arsenal are also other options lined up for him. However, it is more likely that Chelsea will get Van Dijk. They have the favour of Southampton’s fans. But they are most likely to lose their bid for Bale.

MANCHESTER UNITED

ROONEY REUNITES WITH FIRST CLUB IN THE 2017 PREMIER LEAGUE
ONCE A BLUE, ALWAYS A BLUE

More so, Wayne Rooney of Manchester United has rejoined his alma-mater team, Everton, after playing thirteen years for Manchester United. This has created a yawning gap whose job to fill has been given to Michael Carrick. Thus, he is now the new captain of the Manchester United squad.

You cannot afford to let the football channels on your cable tv flicker or fail now, not at the most thrilling part of the year. You can renew or subscribe to your DStv, GOtv or Startimes cables with speed and convenience by simply logging on to www.vtpass.com today.
