Vodacom Business looks to take better bandwidth across Nigeria

Vodacom group is back in the Nigerian telecommunications market through the carrier services and business network solutions subsidiaries acquired from Gateway Telecommunications.

The subsidiaries were acquired in a USD700m deal first announced in August 2008, and they now fall under the Vodacom Business brand.

In line with the Nigerian government’s broadband strategies, the new business has a robust terrestrial network reaching across most of the country, and intends to have every state covered soon.

Noting that it was not in Nigeria as a GSM company, Vodacom Business said it was looking to take the available bandwidth on the country’s shores to the consumer. It noted it had made significant investments in its staff together with facilities upgrades and the deployment of our national terrestrial MPLS network.

Louisa Van Beek, chief executive officer of Vodacom Business Africa, said the company would  take the lead to provide its  customers with a diversified portfolio of services that they tailor for their respective businesses.
