Tizeti, West Africa’s pioneer solar-based Internet service provider, has rolled out 4G LTE network in Edo State with a monthly fixed broadband cost of N4,000.
The company’s Chief Executive Officer, Kendall Ananyi, said the 4G broadband Internet would empower more Nigerians in the state.
He explained, “Rolling out 4G LTE broadband Internet in Edo at the cheapest fixed broadband prices in Nigeria, and possibly Africa, is a strategic decision for us. We have been building brand-new, solar-powered, 4G-capable towers in Edo, starting with Benin City, which leverages Edo State’s expansive fibre-network built by some of our partners, MainOne and Facebook.
“Edo State has a large population of vibrant, young people and a high number of higher institutions, which provides a foundation for a robust and thriving ecosystem to enable digital leadership. The Edo State Governor, Godwin Obaseki, is implementing reforms in investment promotion and determination to build a robust technology ecosystem in the state, with an agenda that prioritises information communication technology-compliant pedagogy in primary schools, improves digital skills for students and graduates and revamps technical education to increase productivity.”
The company’s Chief Operating Officer, Ifeanyi Okonkwo, commented, “The launch in Edo State is personal to us as founders of Tizeti because we are alumni of the University of Benin. At N4,000 monthly cost with a one-off installation cost of N4,000, we believe the plan is affordable, especially to undergraduate students. This provides a huge opportunity for people in Edo to benefit from unlimited broadband Internet for use in online learning, eCommerce and entertainment, especially interactive games, video consumption, and music.”
Tizeti currently has 1.7m unique users with broadband services which include a new Skype-like personal and business enterprise communications service.
