Nigeria. November 11, 2019 – In line with its focus on accelerating access to
affordable broadband connectivity in Africa’s underserved populations, Tizeti,
West Africa’s pioneer solar-based internet service provider, has launched its
4G LTE network in Nigeria, with the plans to extend to leading cities in
Nigeria and West Africa in 2020. Announcing the rollout of high-speed 4G
services to Rivers, Ogun and Edo States, in a first phase launch, Tizeti’s Chief
Executive Officer, Kendall Ananyi promises its 4G connectivity will empower more
Nigerians in Nigeria’s South-South and South-West states, stimulate economic
activities and provide unlimited access to affordable and reliable broadband
This launch follows the build of brand-new,
solar-powered, 4G-capable towers in Port Harcourt, Rivers State where Tizeti
will offer its first 4G and ISP services, to be followed by new towers in Ogun
Mr. Ananyi believes that this new solution
will boost internet penetration in the new states and contribute to
accelerating digital transformation across Nigeria ”Access to affordable and
reliable unlimited internet connectivity has been an intractable problem for a
lot of Nigerian businesses and residential customers, especially for people in
Edo, Rivers and Ogun States. To address this and provide a sustainable and
cost-effective solution, we leverage our solar-powered, always-on towers and
robust internet bandwidth from MainOne to create a low CAPEX and OPEX network
of owned and operated towers. This allows us to offer customers unlimited
internet at 30 to 50% the cost of traditional mobile data plans”.
The launch of its 4G network provides Tizeti
the opportunity to drive the growth in demand for eCommerce, music, interactive
games and video consumption in Nigeria, especially from popular social media
apps that have integrated video calling and video stories as well as content
sites such as YouTube, Netflix, and Iroko.
The price for a Tizeti unlimited plan is
9,500 Nigerian Naira per month. The company has 1.1 million unique users and
internet services that include a new Skype-like personal and business
enterprise communications service — WiFiCall.ng and access to video streaming
sites & services.
Tizeti is a fast-growing Wireless Internet
service provider in Lagos, Nigeria, delivering high-speed unlimited wi-fi
Internet access to residential and business customers using wide-area Wi-Fi.
Its services are available in Lagos, Ogun and Rivers State. It is also
expanding rapidly to other African countries as it has been successfully
launched in Accra, Ghana.
