Subscribers To Enjoy MTN 4G+
By Pelumi Olaleye
With the launch of MTN Nigeria 4G+ in Lagos, Abuja and Port-Harcourt, subscribers would experience faster and seamless browsing experience.
According to the telco,the enhanced service is targeted at delivering a premium experience to more people across the country as long as customers upgrade to its 4G Subscriber Identity Module (SIM).
MTN 4G+ runs on 4G LTE (Long Term Evolution), which is an advanced technology combination of its acquired 800 MHz spectrum and 2600 MHz. The added spectrum and advanced technology stretches the reach and capacity of MTN’s data network in Nigeria and enables speeds of up to 200 Mbps. This means a 30-minute HD video could take as little as three minutes to download on 4G+, while the same video would take around eight minutes to download on standard 4G.
Chief Operating Officer, MTN Nigeria, Mazen Mroue, said “It’s about the customer. We put the customer at the heart of everything that we do.”
He maintained that the launch of 4G+ represents a natural evolution from MTN’s already fast and reliable 4G network and further demonstrates the company’s commitment to continued investment in technology that caters to the present and future needs of its customers and country.
“As MTN, we believe that everyone deserves the benefits of a modern connected life. With this enhancement, our customers in covered locations can expect faster downloads and uploads, and better browsing and streaming experiences. The successful launch of our 4G+ network is a momentous occasion, which advances our quest to provide world-class service to our customers,” he stated.
