Speaking at a forum in Lagos, Chairman of Globacom, Mike Adenuga, said that the company has made arrangements to deploy the best telecommunications technology to sustain a robust network that would continuously offer customers world-class mobile and data services.
According to him, subscribers in the West African sub region through the Glo 1 armoured submarine cable and roaming facilities are guaranteed seamless communications in Africa and between Africa and the rest of the world.
“We want to assure all our subscribers that we will continue to invest huge resources in developing and maintaining a communications technology that is second to none in Africa,” he said.
Adenuga reiterated that Globacom’s intervention in the telecommunications sector in Africa had deepened broadband penetration and telecommunications infrastructure by putting affordable voice and data communications at the fingertips of millions who otherwise would not have had quality connections.
He claimed that his company entered the telecoms sector in 2003 as Nigeria fourth operator and as second national carrier with superior technology, more advanced value added offerings and pocket-friendly services.
