Smile Communications has announced plans to extend its services to Nigeria’s capital city Abuja and Port Harcourt in August following launches in Ibadan and Lagos.
HumanIPO reported previously on the Ibadan and Lagos launches, and Smile chief corporate services officer Lee-Ann Cassie said while receiving the Best 4G LTE Internet Service Provider of the Year award at the Cyber Innovation Awards held in Lagos more were to come.
“We are currently concluding plans to roll out in Port Harcourt and Abuja by August this year, in order to serve more Nigerians with our robust internet service offerings. Thereafter, we will extend services to Benin City, Owerri Onitsha and other major cities of the country,” she said.
Cassie noted the company’s growth just a year after it commenced operations in Ibadan.
“We are very honoured to receive the award, particularly for the fact that we recently rolled out our services in Lagos, after rolling out in Ibadan a year ago. This means that people are watching us and are pleased with the kind of robust and fast internet services that we are offering Nigerians. We want to assure Nigerians that we will be consistent in the speed and reliability of our services in the provisioning of broadband internet services.”
She also said the company is developing enterprise solutions to grow the businesses of its customers.
“We are also planning to expand services to provide voice over Long Term Evolution (LTE) technology. We are working with reputable Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs) for supply of the equipment that will drive the solution.”
