Subscribers To Enjoy Improved Connectivity, As MTN Acquires 10MHz Spectrum

The management of MTN Nigeria, on Monday said better days are ahead for subscribers to its network with improved service quality following recent acquisition of a 10MHz spectrum in the 2.6GHz spectrum band from OPENSKYS Services Limited.
The additional spectrum, the company said, will address the huge demands of high-speed data transfer and communication and is expected to reduce incidences of congestion, which will ultimately lead to an improvement in customers’ experience on the network.
The newly acquired licence will see MTN deploy the spectrum across the 36 states of the federation, including the FCT, adding that transfer of the spectrum will significantly improve its customer experience in line with its commitment to deliver excellent service.
In addition, the acquired spectrum will enable the telecommunications operator to expand broadband penetration, aiding the achievement of Nigeria’s broadband objective.
Commenting on the deal, Karl Toriola, Chief Executive Officer, MTN Nigeria said the “additional spectrum will enable us to deliver on our promise to our customers to deliver quality service, as we continue to support the Federal Government’s vision of deepening broadband penetration in the country.”
The newly acquired spectrum, the company said in the statement, will allow it to further expand its network coverage, boost network capabilities to accommodate more users and devices simultaneously, and further optimise the MTN network.
