Tizeti partners Microsoft for Airband internet rollout in Oyo State

23 Mar 2022

Nigerian wireless ISP Tizeti has partnered with Microsoft to roll out high speed Airband internet infrastructure in Oyo State. Through the Microsoft Airband Initiative, Tizeti will leverage Microsoft’s low-cost wireless technologies to make it easier and cheaper for people, especially those in underserved communities, to access the internet. Earlier this year Tizeti launched its fixed wireless network in Oyo State to improve the region’s competitiveness with affordable, high speed and unlimited broadband internet.

Tizeti’s CEO Kendall Ananyi said that the Microsoft Airband collaboration will complement the firm’s existing initiative in Oyo State and lay a foundation for a robust and thriving digital ecosystem, while Microsoft Airband General Manager, Vickie Robinson, said: ‘Communities need reliable, affordable internet access in our increasingly digital world. That’s why Microsoft is working with providers like Tizeti to connect the unconnected, expand opportunity, and close the global digital divide.’
