Nigeria’s second largest mobile operator by subscribers, Globacom, has expanded its 4G LTE network footprint to an additional 20 locations, increasing coverage to over 20 areas across the country. The newly covered locations include: Idi Araba, Idi Oro, Mushin, Apapa, Ikorodu and Oyingbo in Lagos; Jikwoyi, Dawaki, Gudu, Karu, Kado, Kuje and Zuba in Abuja; Ota in Ogun State; and Eagle Island, Chinda, Abuloma, Iwofe, Choba, and Onne in Port Harcourt. ‘We want to assure our esteemed customers that we are working at a frenetic pace to take our superior 4G LTE services to where they live and work. If Glo 4G LTE is not near you yet, please, rest assured we will be there before you know it’, the company said in a press release.
Nigerian-owned Globacom formally launched its LTE network at the start of October in parts of the cities of Lagos, Port Harcourt, Abuja, Jos, Warri, Eket, Benin City, Yola and Zaria, before connecting eight new locations around a week later and a further 16 by the end of that month.
