CTL selects Curvalux to improve broadband connectivity in Lagos

25 Feb 2022

Curvalux, a developer of next generation wireless broadband solutions, has announced the signing of an agreement with Communication Trend Limited (CTL) to conduct a commercial pilot of the Curvalux system to deliver affordable high speed broadband access to Nigeria. The agreement will see Curvalux’s fixed wireless access (FWA) technology deployed in Lagos to provide significantly improved broadband connectivity to residents and businesses in the city. CTL will install Curvalux’s Edge Node antennas across an area of the city and evaluate broadband coverage and performance during a four-week evaluation period. Once the service becomes commercially available, CTL customers will be able to subscribe to a standalone broadband access service or combine it with a TV package ‘at significantly reduced costs compared with other access solutions’.

This will be the first time that Curvalux’s technology is trialled in Africa and could provide the blueprint for further rollouts in other African nations. It follows a recent contract with Globe Telecom in the Philippines, which sees Curvalux solutions being deployed to bring connectivity to thousands of unconnected homes and businesses across the Philippine islands.
