Etisalat, one of Nigeria’s fastest growing telecommunication company has launched its mobile Fourth Generation Long Term Evolution (4G LTE) service in Nigeria.
Etisalat is joining other networks: Globacom and MTN who are already offering the same service for customers in Nigeria.
Speaking on the launch, the Chief Executive Officer, Etisalat Nigeria, Mr. Matthew Willsher, said that the new service has demonstrated the company’s commitment in delivering superior customer experience to its subscribers in Nigeria.
“The 4G LTE technology offers our customers increased access to high speed data and quality voice services real time. With the new technology, our customers will enjoy efficient broadband internet and uninterrupted connectivity to clearer voice calls, increased access to online streaming and ultra-high definition videos,” Mr. Willsher stated.
Willsher noted that unlike other GSM networks, Etisalat customers do not need to go through the rigorous process of executing a sim swap before the 4G LTE since all Etisalat SIMs are already LTE enabled. He said the Etisalat’s 4G LTE network supports the widest range of Long Term Evolution devices, thus subscribers can enjoy the benefits of LTE instantly.
He said the launch of the latest service was an important milestone for both Etisalat and the telecommunication industry in Nigeria because it will be instrumental in achieving a fast-growing global digital economy.
