9mobile expands its 4G network in 16 Nigerian cities

9mobile is deploying its 4G LTE network to more Nigerian cities in order to expand its service offering to more customers. The company has added 10 new cities and towns across the country to its 4G network and upgraded LTE services in existing six cities, increasing the number of cities and towns enjoying its services with mass deployment of 4G technology to 16. 

The 4G LTE will soon be available in Aba, Abuja, Nasarawa, Calabar, Enugu, Kaduna, Kano, Lagos, Niger, Onitsha, Owerri, Port Harcourt, Sokoto, Uyo, Aba and Ogun.

The Acting Managing Director of 9mobile, Stephane Beuvelet, identified the benefits available to customers with the 9mobile 4G LTE, including a low latency rate for high-speed connectivity and planned redundancy to minimize downtime impact.

Beuvelet concluded, “Apart from bringing 4G to these new cities, our 4G internet comes with the lowest latency rate in the market that guarantees the best speed results. The 9mobile network is purposely set up with adequate redundancies to neutralize the impact of shocks during downtime situations like the recent West-Africa fiber cuts experienced across the industry.”
