Telecom giant, Globacom has announced connection of Babcock University to its international submarine cable, the Glo 1. Â Head of Glo 1 Enterprise Solutions, Folu Aderibigbe, said the connectivity would provide fast and reliable Internet services to the university.
A few months ago, the Telco signed a multimillion-naira connectivity deal with the university for the provision of 40 Megabytes of Internet link, said to be the largest in the nationâ€™s education sector so far. This is in preparation for the January 2012 take off of the universityâ€™s Benjamin S. Carson School of Medicine and the Babcock Business School both of which are to operate smart classrooms, simulation laboratories and high-tech instructional facilities hooked on to global partners around the world.
