The new owner of moribund Nigerian Telecommunications Limited (NITEL) and its subsidiary, the Nigerian Mobile Telecommunications Limited (M-Tel) has said it would not renege on its plan to roll out service by March ending.
NATCOM chairman Mr Tunde Ayeni had said recently in Abuja that NITEL, now known as NTEL, would roll out service by the end of first quarter 2016.
He said the telecom operator will be rolling out services on 4G Long Term Evolution Technology (LTE) which is known to be a more reliable technology for telecom services, especially for data.
NATCOM plans to roll out in Lagos, Abuja and Port Harcourt in this first instance and thereafter extend to other cities of the country, he said. The company’s spokesperson Ademola Adedoyin told Daily Trust yesterday that the March roll out won’t change.
