Africa's first mobile network in UK come on board

31 March 2014, 12:56

London - The first African mobile network in London has been launched.

The network branded "LOMO" is said to be unique as it is meant to bridge the distance between Africa and the Diaspora at a minimum cost.

Speaking at the debut of the network in London, Godwin Ere-Victor, the Managing Director of the company, said LOMO had "low tariffs for international and local calls, as well as roaming.

“With LOMO you can also pay utility bills, and do money transfer similar to Western Union," he explained.

According to him, other networks patronised by Africans carry out charitable works in Asia because they are owned by Asians.

"But LOMO 's charity will focus on Africa, we will begin with Congo in view of the high number of displaced persons in that country," he added.

He urged Nigerians and other Africans to patronise LOMO, saying that the network took into consideration the peculiar needs of the people before going public.

He added that the network would also be launched in the U.S. and Nigeria in the next one year.

 In his remarks Nigeria's High Commissioner to the UK, Dr. Dalhatu Tafida, urged the members of the Diaspora to patronise LOMO while pledging support for the network.
