Nigeria’s most advanced 4G/LTE mobile network operator, ntel, has formally announced the commencement of commercial operations in Port Harcourt, Rivers State.
The network operator commenced commercial operations in the city on December 1, 2016, offering customers free on-network calls and unlimited data.
“I am delighted to announce that beginning Thursday December 1, 2016 you can pick up and activate your ntel SIM here in Port Harcourt. We will give priority to those of you who pre-registered your preferred numbers during our number registration campaign,” said Kamar Abass, CEO of ntel.
In the coming weeks, ntel’s branded stores located at 278 Aba road and 36 old Aba road would open fully to customers complete with customer facing and after-sales support staff.
He added, “We are excited to be in Port Harcourt and eager to bring our unique 4G/LTE Advanced services to eager Pioneers like you.”
The launch in Port Harcourt brings to three the number of cities with ntel presence – Lagos and Abuja are the other cities – and is the completion of a cycle and a promise to launch in these cities last year in the first phase of its expansion.
