Last week, Spectranet hooked Huawei on a strategic partnership to see that Nigerian users experience amazing broadband speed in its newly launched 4G/LTE platform.
The platform has been on in Lagos and Abuja and is expected to spread to other parts of the country very soon. Chief Operating Officer of Spectranet, Mr. Atul Ojha said that the launch was a very important milestone for his company just as hooking up with Huawei to sustain it.
He said: “We have launched in Lagos and have also made it available in Abuja. Very soon consumers in Ibadan and other places will also hook on. So far the experience of the consumer has been so encouraging. The speed they are getting is very satisfactory and impressive.
We chose Huawei because they have been there for us in the past when we were on WIMAX platform and now that we have moved from WiMAX to LTE we also felt they should continue to be our partner. Our migration to LTE is to give customers excellent services”
He said the partnership would see Huawei deploy the network services, maintain produce the devices Spectranet will use for the LTE services.
Meanwhile, MD Huawei West Africa, Tony Liang expressed satisfaction with the partnership, saying it was a partnership between two giants.
For him, We are a very big ICT group and can provide several operators different services at the same time without having any problems. We have a strong network solutions, backend network and service centers across the world.
The device we are going to manufacture for Spectranet can cover three hundred meters on wifi. It has a battery backup that can last the user for two hours since Africa is known for unsteady power generation. The device can contain 32 devices at the same time.
