ntel, Nigeria’s most advanced 4G/LTE network, has announced the commencement of its phased and paced commercial operations in the country.
Ntel’s commencement of operations is the culmination of their journey from acquiring the old NiTel/MTel assets to the delivery of successive milestones underlining their growing operating capability on their new fixed and mobile network infrastructure.
With the formal commencement, commercial services will be available on ntel’s 4G/LTE-Advanced network across key site clusters in Lagos and Abuja.
In May, ntel’s service will be available in oil rich Port Harcourt and subsequently to other states, across multiple geo-political zones, during the second half of 2016.
The company’s 4G/LTE-Advanced technology built on the 900/1800MHz spectrum, delivering an unbeatable and game-changing customer experience of high-speed Internet Access of up to 230Mbps, the fastest available in Nigeria today, thus enabling a world of full mobile broadband experiences that will transform both lives and livelihoods!
In a statement, ntel’s CEO, Kamar Abass said, “I am delighted to be writing to you, on behalf of the staff and directors of NatCom, with the news that, today, this eighth day of April 2016, we start commercial activities on our newly commissioned 4G/LTE-Advanced network.”
To herald the launch, the first 100,000 people to redeem and activate their ntel SIMs will get free on-net calls for life while data subscribers will get 3 months unlimited data usage on select bundles.
“We are passionate at ntel about the power of Broadband to boost productivity and, thereby, transform lives, We expect to see this happen as ntel helps to accelerate the ongoing migration, from existing 2G and 3G services, to genuinely high-speed Mobile Broadband on 4G/LTE-Advanced,” Abass concluded.
