The Chief Executive Officer of nTel, Kamar Abass, in a recent memo to subscribers in the oil city, he told that “I am delighted to announce that beginning December 1, 2016 you can pick up and activate your nTel SIM here in Port Harcourt”.

“We will give priority to those of you who pre-registered your preferred numbers during our number registration campaign.

“In the weeks ahead, our branded stores located at 278 Aba road and 36 old Aba road would be up and running with the full complement of customer facing and after-sales support staff. We are excited to be in Port Harcourt and eager to bring our unique 4G/LTE Advanced services to eager Pioneers like you.”

Explaining more on the real benefits of 4G, Abass said the speed is in the upwards of 10 times faster than current 3G network, saying “It allows Internet subscribers to do things faster, consume more media on their device and work harder – although not necessarily in that order

ntel, whose 4G/LTE solution runs on the 900/1800MHz spectrum is Nigeria’s fifth Mobile Network Operator and commenced operations on April 8, 2016 with commercial sales of Voice-over-LTE and high-speed Internet Access services, on their newly commissioned advanced network infrastructure”.

According to him, “The commencement of commercial operations was the culmination of the journey from acquiring the old NiTel/MTel assets to the delivery of successive milestones underlining their growing operating capability on their new fixed and mobile network infrastructure”.

Business Hilights recalls that the group had noted in April last year that it would take off in three key cities of Abuja, Lagos and Port Harcourt in the first phase of their expansion. “The commencement of operations in Port Harcourt is thus the completion of a cycle and a promise kept to subscribers,” nTel boss averred.
