Nigerian wireless operator Emerging Markets Telecommunication Service, which provides services under the brand name 9mobile, has launched commercial 4G services in the city of lbadan, the capital of Oyo State. The move follows the expansion of its LTE network to the city of Ilorin earlier this month. 9mobile says it plans to roll out 4G to additional areas of Nigeria in the near future. ‘We are committed to making 4G services available to more cities across the country. 9mobile is becoming Nigeria’s network of choice for effective and reliable 4G. We will continue to support Nigerians to realise their full potential,’ commented 9mobile CCO Stjepan Udovicic.
TeleGeography’s GlobalComms Database notes that 9mobile launched its LTE network in Lagos in October 2016 and services were expanded to Abuja in May 2017, while a large expansion drive saw coverage arriving in the towns and cities of Aba, Nasarawa, Calabar, Enugu, Kaduna, Kano, Niger, Onitsha, Owerri, Port Harcourt, Sokoto, Uyo, Aba and Ogun in early 2020.
