2016 – The year of 4G LTE

In comments made during a parley with executives of Association of Telecom Companies of Nigeria (ATCON), Kamar Abass, CEO of ntel said “ntel is leading a revolution in the Nigerian telecom space. We have seen subscriber numbers rise to 152 million in 15 years and statistics from OVUM and GSMA indicate that the numbers will grow to about 222m by 2020. Ntel will help fuel that growth but we are looking at leading a transformation around broadband. Everything we see see shows that the broadband wave is coming. 2G has reached a plateau and even though we are seeing about 120 million 2G subscribers compared to under 1 million 4G subscribers today, that number will fall to about 23m 2G subscribers by 2020 with 4G subscribers rising to above 50m. ntel will help build that critical mass with our pure play 4G LTE network propagated over our Goldilock system with speeds of up to 240 mbps.” In South Africa, operators are already looking beyond 4G LTE to LTE Advanced which experts say has many benefits over standard LTE, including higher broadband speeds and lower latency.

With ntel coming into the market to provide 4G data services alongside others like Spectranet and Smile and with MTN’s acquisition of Visafone and the imminent availability of the ‘digital dividend’ 700Mhz spectrum expected to be retrieved from the broadcasting sector for assignment to telecom operators in line with the International Telecommunication Union (ITU) recommendations, the projections by OVUM and GSMA in terms of 4G growth are looking more and more achievable with 2016 shaping up to be a very interesting one.

ntel is leading a revolution – Kamar Abass

“Many people believe that the Nigerian telecoms industry has witnessed a transformation in the past 15 years. With ntel coming on stream this year, I believe we are about to witness a revolution,” so said Kamar Abass CEO of ntel, Nigeria’s newest mobile network operator when he played host to a delegation from the Association of Telecom Companies of Nigeria (ATCON).

    Seriously, how fast can these be deployed to Oaun state,
    This State is really under rated

    1 year on since 4G LTE became a norm in other parts of the country and Osun still has none

    If ntel will be different,
