West Africa’s largest independent fibre optic infrastructure and telecommunications services provider, Phase 3 Telecom, has embarked on an upgrade of its network to enhance optimal performance.
A statement endorsed by an official of the tech firm explained that the current upgrade is in addition to previous investments made to ensure optimal performance of 4G internet service provider (ISP), Smile Communications’ network.
The Chief Executive Officer of Phase 3 Telecoms, Mr Stanley Jegede, said the firm would not rest on its oars but would keep upgrading the network to make it more resilient.
He said: “As Smile’s choice telecoms infrastructure provider; we will continue to ensure the company enjoys high and exceptional service quality. We are unflinching in our commitment to a dedicated network reach that delivers winning solutions to boost our client’s experience as well as business objectives and goals for the region.”
Jegede said that the firm has a clear understanding of the value its services should bring to clients, adding that the firm will continue to ensure that existing and potential clients across West Africa leverage the investments it has made on its aerial fibre network for a secure, reliable and scalable infrastructure that provide affordable and flexible opportunities for businesses to grow and thrive regardless of location.
The firm added that the focus of the constant network upgrade is to amplify its service quality, broadband internet access and other communications offerings via clear channel upgrade. This upgrade further expands the scope of on-going relationship between the two companies as Phase3 continues to serve as Smile’s telecoms infrastructure provider in the region.
“Smile, as one of Africa’s top communications services company is now able to take greater advantage of Phase3’s robust infrastructure, capacity, resilience and coverage to enhance its broadband service and product offerings. Connectivity over a dedicated link is better assured as Phase3 offers its services in several locations in the country. This development will reaffirm Smile’s mission to ensure its customers ‘fully benefit from the internet world,” the firm said.
