Nigerian telecoms operator ipNX plans to reach around 100,000 households in Lagos with its in-deployment fibre-to-the-home (FTTH) network by the end of 2014, local newspaper BusinessDay reports. Rollout of the infrastructure began in the fourth quarter of last year and coverage is expected to expand to 500,000 homes in 2015, rising to two million in 2017. ipNX is marketing its FTTH service under the brand ‘ipNX FoS’, offering a range of products including broadband internet, fixed telephony and IPTV. Speaking at the launch of the service in Lagos, the firm’s managing director Ejovi Aror said that internet connections range from 4Mbps to 12Mbps for residential and SME customers. ipNX FoS is currently available to around 50,000 households and businesses in selected areas of Lagos Island, Victoria Island, Ikoyi and Lekki, but will be expanded to Ikeja, Apapa and Surulere from November this year.
