Spectranet expands 4G service

11 December 2013, 16:44

Abuja - Spectranet, the country’s leading internet service provider (ISP), has expanded its internet wireless broadband technology service across Nigeria.

Already operational in Lagos, the company affirmed that the 4G wireless internet service had been expanded to Abuja, Ibadan and other locations in the last few months.

The chief operating officer of Spectranet, Atul Ojha, said the experience among customers in Lagos and Ibadan had been exciting.

Speaking on the need for businesses to adopt 4G LTE technology, Ojha said, "The 4G is better because the customer can experience higher bandwidth which will not be possible on the GSM technology or the CDMA network, and this means he will be able to do much more in less time.”

He pledged the company’s commitment to enhance the quality of the company’s service.

"We have demonstrated our commitment by migrating from WIMAX, otherwise we were running perfectly on the Wimax technology; but because we wanted to ensure that our customers’ service is not compromised. We could have continued like the other service provider on Wimax; we wanted to give the best and that is why we are the first to migrate to offer 4G,” Ojha added.

With its WIFI-capability as well as its innovative features, the 4G LTE technology has multiple satisfactory benefits to the end users.

The wireless network works within the range of 300 metres and a multi-user terminal can support more than 15 devices including iPads and smartphones in addition to regular computer devices.

The 4G technology boasts a 50 percent increase in downlink speed and device download speed that can reach 109Mbps.
