Nigeria’s Smile Communications has launched LTE broadband internet service in Abuja. The company said the Abuja roll-out, coming barely one year after its 2013 commercial unveiling of its network in Ibadan, and months after Lagos, followed more than three years of extensive testing and development.
Smile Group’s Chief Operating Officer, Tom Allen, stated that: “Abuja is very strategic in the company’s growth, and
Smile has taken its time to ensure the service is at its best in the capital city. Our vision of becoming the broadband internet provider of choice in Nigeria has guided us in everything from selecting our people and partners to developing relevant products and services. We are
confident and excited, and we are ready to share the promise of digital citizenship with Abuja residents and millions of Nigerians.”
According to Allen, Smile customers are already experiencing global standard speed and quality; however, with the implementation of 4G technology, these
customers can experience speeds over 20Mbps. Allen noted that key to Smile’s vision is to create a memorable experience for the customers. According to Allen, Smile Nigeria will create more than 400 highly specialised Nigerian jobs during 2014 alone.
