6 Oct 2009

Nigerian CDMA operator Starcomms has launched a promotion allowing subscribers to call India, Hong Kong, the US, Canada, China and the UK for NGN10 (USD0.068) per minute. Tushar Maheshwari, COO of Starcomms, said: ‘This promotion will make it affordable for Nigerians to make international calls without any worries and has been launched just before the festive season to ensure that more and more consumers can benefit from [it].’ He added that making communications affordable across the country is the CDMA operator’s key focus. According to TeleGeography’s GlobalComms Database, Starcomms received a ten-year Unified Access Service (UAS) licence from the Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC) in August 2006, with the first cellular CDMA services following in February 2007 using the 1900MHz frequency band.
