WiMAX to be deployed in three cities

23 May 2007

Nigerian ISP ipNX Nigeria Ltd has announced that US vendor SOMA Networks is to install next-generation wireless broadband systems in the major cities of Lagos, Abuja and Port Harcourt. SOMA will be deploying its ‘FlexMAX’ WiMAX equipment in the cities to help ipNX expand beyond its current commercial and banking customer base and target the residential market. It is hoping that within three years over 250,000 customers will be using the new network. The project is in line with the Nigerian government’s State Accelerated Broadband Initiative (SABI), which is designed to aggressively expand broadband access to all major commercial cities in Nigeria.
