In a bid to fulfil his pledge of boosting
Internet services on campus, the Vice
Chancellor, Professor Olusola Bandele
Oyewole, has approved the increment of
the University’s bandwidth from five
megabytes per second (mbps) to 50 (mbps).
Professor Oyewole disclosed this
achievement even as he pleaded with
members of the University community to
bear with the Management, on the
inconveniences arising from the ongoing
reconstruction of Camp-Alabata Road.
Speaking at a luncheon, penultimate Friday,
held in appreciation of Students’ Leaders at
the University’s International Scholars’ and
Resource Centre, the Vice-Chancellor
identified low bandwidth, which he put at 5
mbps as the bane of functional Internet
services on campus.
He stated that as part of measures to
alleviate the challenges, his administration
had increased the bandwidth from five to
50 adding that the measure will improve
access to Internet facility on campus.
According to him, “I will tell you that when
we came in, we felt the need to improve on
internet service on campus. The problem is
that the bandwidth was as low as 5 mbps.
Just last week we increased it to 50mbps.
What that means is that access to the
Internet is now higher”, he added.
Professor Oyewole assured members of the
University community that he would not
relent in his efforts to increase the
bandwidth to a satisfactory level that will
enhance service delivery on campus.
The Vice-Chancellor also appealed to staff
and students to further bear with the
Management on the inconveniences being
experienced as a result of the ongoing
rehabilitation of Camp-Alabata Road.
His words: “The road under construction is
a Federal Government road and we really
appreciate this project. The Federal
Government just started it and when
construction is on, there will be
inconveniences. I want to appeal to
members of the University community to
please bear with us”.
