After years of fruitful structuring and positioning of Spectranet 4G LTE for business and growth, Mr. David Venn has given way for Mr. Ajay Awasthi as its new Chief Executive Officer.

Venn had apart from being the head of operations at the Internet Service Provider (ISP), been an informed analyst on issues bordering on the industry due to his vast experience spanning from managing related companies in Malaysia, Ghana, South Africa and Europe.

Before his change, Venn had been at the forefront of championing the campaign for reviewing data price floor (DPF), so as to encourage networks to grow investments and drive healthy competition. He also drove subscriber base of the company to become leading Internet Services Provider (ISP) in Nigeria year-on-year.

However, industry experts say Awasthi is set to deepen the campaign and better reposition the leading internet service provider to grow premium service delivery to Nigerians.
