ntel, 9mobile announce national roaming trial

4 Dec 2017

9mobile, Nigeria’s fourth largest mobile network operator (MNO) by subscribers, will conduct a national roaming field trial with cellco ntel, reports The Independent. Both operators have garnered the approval of the Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC) to test national roaming over a period of two months. The trial will enable ntel customers to make calls on 9mobile’s network using any 2G or 3G handset, with ntel CEO Ernest Akinlola adding: ‘A full national roaming agreement with 9mobile would provide our growing customer base with a seamless service over 4G LTE superfast data and voice clarity, as well as ubiquitous 3G and 2G coverage nationwide.’ The roaming test is believed to have started this week.
