Wireless ISP Tizeti has announced the launch of LTE services in Port Harcourt in Rivers State. The firm has rolled out solar-powered 4G towers in the city and plans to expand services to Ogun and Edo States in the future. ‘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,’ stated Tizeti’s CEO Kendall Ananyi, adding: ‘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.’
In addition, Tizeti currently delivers high speed unlimited Wi-Fi internet access to residential and business customers in Lagos, Ogun and Rivers State, as well as in Ghana. It says that it plans to expand to other African countries in the near future.
