Speaking on ntel’s SAT 3 and 4G technology, Ndukwe who co-chaired the Presidential Committee on National Broadband Strategy and Roadmap said, “I can say I have been very impressed with what I saw. It seems at the cutting edge of technology and a lot of great work has been done in terms of installation here and I’ve also tested the network. I have seen that it is performing very well and with the expansion plans that ntel has, I think Nigerians are up for something good eventually, so congratulations.”

He then said the future of technology is hinged on 4G/broadband. “I’m a very big advocate for broadband and what it portends for the country and for Africa and for the human race generally. 4G is very critical. You know I was involved in the Presidential Committee for the national broadband plan and what we had there was that 3G and 4G would help in expanding broadband reach in Nigeria as much as possible. “

“So, ntel obviously is doing it in terms of high speed for data and I hope that both business and ordinary people will take advantage of that and use it to the maximum because everything depends on data and broadband``

Continuing, Dr. Ndukwe said “So, ntel obviously is doing it in terms of high speed for data and I hope that both business and ordinary people will take advantage of that and use it to the maximum because everything depends on data and broadband. I think ntel is providing a very important infrastructure, a very important system for advancing 4G in Nigeria.”

In his response, Kamar Abass, ntel CEO, in explaining ntel’s journey and how quickly the company has grown said, “We started in December 2015 and by January 18, 2016 we had made our first call making this one of the fastest 4G setup in history. Every time I think about our emergence I think of the foundation you laid at the NCC. We are in your debt.”
