Globacom has announced that it is making progress on its plan to deploy 300,000 fixed lines to 13 Nigerian cities. As part of the first phase of its Broad Access network launch plan, a 10,000km fibre-optic backbone has been established, spanning the cities of Warri, Port Harcourt, Aba, Umuahia, Owerri, Onitsha, Enugu, Oturkpo, Makurdi, Lafia, Ilorin, Jebba, Mokwa, Bida and Minna. Nigerian Bulletin! quotes Okon Iyanam, Executive Director of Glo, as saying the launch of the optic fibre backbone across the geo-political zones of the country will ensure better data and voice transmission.
