Samsung seems to have something brewing again with leaks of their new offering the C5 hitting the internet over the last couple of weeks.

The phone has yet to be announced, but it has been heavily leaked, with a cool looking front and back image of the phone available for viewing.



The shots give an indication of what to expect with the C series from Samsung; a metal-clad body, antenna bands and a thin body.

The front looks quite Samsung though with the almost spherical home button that has become practically trademark Samsung. 

But what's on the inside,

In terms of Specs, the Galaxy C5 sounds the part. The whispers promise a 5.2-inch 1080p display, a Snapdragon 617 octa-core processor, 4GB of RAM, 16/8MP camera combo and Android Marshmallow. 



From the look of things, the Galaxy C5 sounds like a pretty sweet phone, a definite upgrade to the A series and with its sleek design could make it a pretty good i-Phone doppelganger (in some design aspects at least)

No idea how much it would cost or its initial release date but then again it's been heavily leaked, so odds are we'll hear something pretty soon.





Opera launched their inbuilt VPN service on their browser. What it allowed users to do essentially was to bypass usage caps or indiscriminate monitoring, allowing the user access to free streaming without the hassle of data caps or online monitoring. This will be especially useful to those who want a way to work around restricted internet access, like those pesky I.T. departments at work or elsewhere.

On installation on mobile devices, it removes all those annoying ad-tracking cookies, you know, the ones that stalk you all over the internet – and then try to lure you in with adverts that they feel you'd like and such.

Opera also explains that the app allows users to encrypt their local web traffic, for further privacy protection. This is useful when using unencrypted public Wi-Fi networks, too.

This helps people who would like to keep their business private especially with their personal devices. In this era of constant online monitoring, the Opera VPN is helping people bypass these restrictions and giving them a sense of privacy.


Chris Houston, President of Surfeasy, Opera’s VPN division, said in an announcement released this morning.“Every day, millions of people, from students to working people, find that social-media sites like Snapchat, Instagram and Facebook are blocked when they surf on their campus or workplace Wi-Fi. The same goes for video-streaming sites,

 “With the new Opera VPN app, we help people to break down the barriers of the web and enjoy the internet like it should be,”


The good news now is-- the app has now come to the iOS, which means that users of the i-Phone and i-Pad also have access to the protection Opera's VPN provides. The user will have to open the settings page of the browser and turn it on as it's off by default.


The VPN app, at launch, lets you choose from one of five virtual locations: the U.S., Canada, Germany, Singapore and The Netherlands. It’s also available in several languages, including English, Arabic, French, German, Indonesian, Japanese, Portuguese, Russian and Spanish.


An android version is already in the works, but iOS users...yay!

Hey guys, i've got Good and Bad News for ya'll concerning one of Nigeria's fastest ISP (Internet Service Provider) Spectranet Nigeria , they will be rolling out a new plan on March 15 and it's due to perhaps the challenges facing the Nigerian economy. from the dollar to naira exchange rate fluctuation to a gradual fuel scarcity and every other thing in the country rising beyond expectation. (Pss! Sachet Water is officially N10).

Anyways i'm not here to talk about politics in the Nigerian economy, this is about Spectranet's new plan which i think might affect SME/Work At Home entrepreneurs. Well let's take a recap, if you remember i posted

Spectranet Nigeria now offers almost Unlimited Data Plan - See 2014 Prices.

sometime in 2014

Well the post however go huge views and i guess people loved the good news but this time i think it's going to be bad news for other people due to the price hike which went to over 40% increase and i think it's really sad.

 See the image below for the new price plan rolling out on the 15th of March 2016...

New Plan Rates in Words:

  • 2GB - N3,000 - 24x7 - Monthly  - No Bonus

  • 5GB - N5,000 - 24x7 - Monthly - No Bonus

  • 20GB - N10,000 - 24x7 - Monthly  - Yes Bonus: 10GB +Free Night Browsing Unlimited

  • 50GB - N20,000 - 24x7 - Monthly - Yes Bonus: 10GB +Free Night Browsing Unlimited

  • 100GB - N40,000 - 24x7 - Monthly  - Yes Bonus: 10GB +Free Night Browsing Unlimited

  • 200GB - N70,000 - 24x7 - Monthly - Yes Bonus: 10GB +Free Night Browsing Unlimited

  • 20GB - N7,500 - 7pm-7am - Monthly - No Bonus

  • 5GB - N5,000 - 7pm-7am - Monthly - No Bonus

 

Compared to this back in 2014...


They really scrapped alot of plans tho!

Now let's see the difference using a plan as an example, back then and up till today(March 04) Spectranet Nigeria's Cheapest Night plan used to be N4,000 for 20GB 6pm to 8am but now the new price for this same plan is now N7,500 for 20GB 7pm to 7am. Old subscribers to this plan will never go for this trust me!

Well the special adviser to Spectranet Nigeria thought as much so what they did is, if you buy the 24x7 Plan which used to be N7,000 for 20GB monthly and now N10,000 for the same 20GB you get 10GB extra and UNLIMITED Night browsing(designed for people who don't like to sleep, this FREE browsing starts by 1AM and ends 7AM).

But this is the BIG KILL!!! Especially for those who used to subscribe for the N7,000 plan, N3,000 difference for an all night UNLIMITED BROWSING and 10GB extra should serve justice to that extra cost. I trust some Night surfers will abuse this but before the do they have to serve time till 1AM in the midnight before the FREE NIGHT BROWSING activates.

So the summary here is that, whether you like it or not Spectranet has upgraded their plan to take more money from your pocket to meet up with the current situation in the country. I'm certain this plan would beat their competitors Swift, Smile etc (Prove me wrong in the comments below)

Let me elaborate tho, with the dollar brouhaha and the so called Epileptic Power sector how do we expect this guys to cope ? Especially when they buy this data with Dollars from the Fiber Optics guys ? As at to Naira to One dollar is N330

I'm not justifying this hike but when a business has to Strive the customers are the ones to pay the Price!

See you guys later and hopefully my next post on Spectranet would be that they have finally brought back the 24/7 UNLIMITED PLAN!
