The managing director of Airtel Nigeria Segun Ogunsanya, says the telecommunications company has the largest 4G network in Nigeria.
Ogunsaya said this at the launch of Fourth Generation Long Term Evolution (4G LTE) network in Lagos, Nigeria’s commercial city.
The Airtel MD said the telecommunications company had set the pace in revolutionising “super fast” internet services in the country.
Ogunsaya said the company plans to get the 4G LTE network into 100 cities before the end of March 2019.
His words: “Early this year, we began a very interesting journey of building the largest and the most robust 4G network in the country,” he said.
“We’re not the first, we don’t claim to be the first, but we’re going to be the best and the largest. 56 cities, 16 states— there is no other network in this country with that spread.
“It gives me great pleasure to officially launch Airtel 4G in Lagos, the commercial nerve centre in Nigeria, the centre of excellence.
“This launch serves as a glowing testimony of our commitment to partner and empower the very great people of Lagos,” he said.
Concise News recalls that Airtel did a pioneer launch of its 4G LTE service in Ibadan, the Oyo state capital in February.
The service has also been launched in various states and major cities across the country, including but not limited to the federal capital territory, Abuja, Enugu, Anambra, Uyo, Port Harcourt, Kaduna, Ekiti, and Delta.
