Tizeti, West Africa’s pioneer solar-based internet service provider, has launched its 4G LTE network in Nigeria with the intention of extending to other prominent cities and West Africa in 2020.
This is in line with its focus on accelerating access to affordable broadband connectivity in Africa’s underserved populations.
The Chief Executive Officer of Tizetti, Kendall Ananyi, announced the roll out of the first phase for the high-speed 4G services which covers Rivers, Ogun and Edo states.
This launch follows the build of brand-new, solar-powered, 4G-capable towers in Port Harcourt, Rivers State where Tizeti will offer its first 4G and ISP services, to be followed by new towers in Ogun and Edo.
Mr. Ananyi believes that this new solution will boost internet penetration in the new states and contribute to accelerating digital transformation across Nigeria.
“To provide a sustainable and cost-effective solution, we leverage our solar-powered, always-on towers and robust internet bandwidth from MainOne to create a low CAPEX and OPEX network of owned and operated towers. This allows us to offer customers unlimited internet at 30 to 50% the cost of traditional mobile data plans”. Ananyi noted.
