Ntel to Empower Nigerians Who Reserve Nos with 4GNetwork, Says Abass


The Chief Executive Officer of ntel, Mr Kamar Abass, on Tuesday said that the telecommunications company would empower Nigerians who reserved numbers with technologically-advanced 4 Generation (4G) network.

Abass made the disclosure in a statement issued in Lagos, a copy of which was made available to the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Lagos.

It said that Nigerians had responded enthusiastically to the number reservation campaign, which was introduced by ntel on March 8.

The statement said under the terms of the campaign, the first batch of subscribers (hundreds of thousands) to reserve their numbers, and subsequently SIM-activate after launch, would be recognised as “Pioneers’’ on the mobile network.

“It would mark them out as among the first to reap the company’s promise of abundant broadband on its pure-play Advanced 4G/Long Term Evolution (LTE) network.

“ntel is a proudly Nigerian company that is fully committed to empowering Nigerians through a technologically advanced pure-play 4G/LTE network.

“We are offering pioneer status to the first batch of subscribers on our network.

“Those who reserve their numbers and subsequently SIM-activate with us, will be the vanguard of a selected corps of privileged subscribers,’’ the statement quoted Abass as saying.

It said that the number reservation campaign, which would run until April 8, had been attracting millions of Nigerians to the company’s website.

According to the statement, the website almost crashed from the overwhelming traffic and has been trending consistently on social media, especially face book, twitter and online chat forum, nairaland.

“The company is offering prospective subscribers who log onto ntel’s websitewww.ntel.com.ng, the opportunity to pick and reserve up to five numbers of their choice, provided they register in time.

“They are eligible to become ntel’s pioneers.

“ntel, which made its first Voice over LTE call in Lagos on Feb. 25, 2016 is positioned to lead the way as Nigeria’s most Advanced 4G/LTE network at a critical moment of transition.

“It is entering a vibrant market with four established players but hopes to make a mark with its full commercial launch of high-definition voice, video and high-speed Internet Access services over Advanced 4G/LTE.

“ntel’s network is built on the 900/1800 Mhz which is recognised as the most widely used frequencies for the deployment of 4G/LTE technology, ‘’ the statement said.

It said that ntel expected to see more than 50 million 4G/LTE subscribers in Nigeria by 2020 and ntel was delighted to be leading this transformation to customers.
