Airtel Nigeria announces launch of 4G in Delta
Airtel Nigeria has announced the launch of its 4G – LTE (Fourth Generation – Long Term Evolution) service in Delta State, covering major cities and towns such as Warri, Effurun, Asaba, Kwale, Ughelli, Sapele, Okpanam and Agbor.
A statement quoted the Vice Chairman, Warri South-West Local Government, Akpodubakaye Arthur, as saying that the switch to 4G would help speed up economic and commercial activities as well as boost productivity of professionals, students and even traders across the state.
“We commend Airtel for its 4G drive and for connecting Warri and major cities and towns in Delta to its 4G network. This is not just a step in the right direction but a development that will transform many lives,” he said.
The Regional Operations Director, Airtel Nigeria, Oladapo Dosunmu, said Airtel believed that delivering a superior 4G experience was a major step in actualizing its objective of making life simple and better for Nigerians.
He outlined the process of how existing Airtel customers could connect to the Airtel 4G network, saying, “It is a simple process – you first need to upgrade your SIM card to a 4G SIM. The upgrade process is also simple as all you require is a SIM Swap, which should not take two minutes.
“The other bit is that you need a device that is 4G-enabled. Then, you will experience seamless and super-fast mobile Internet services on the Airtel network.”
