Celtel Nigeria launches fixed payphone service

10 Jun 2008

Celtel Nigeria has launched a fixed payphone service targeting Nigerians unable to afford mobile phones or who live or work in places where mobile phone use is restricted. The service consists of a fixed payphone terminal and a special SIM card which can be carried about and recharged like a normal pre-paid SIM card. The operator claims the offering will help the government’s Universal Access Initiative which is aimed at increasing telecoms access across the country.
