Airtel Nigeria has recently announced that they have finally launched its commercial 5G services in the country. The coverage of their network is currently available in Abuja, Lagos, and Port Harcourt, but the company will reportedly expand to other locations in the coming future.
Airtel Nigeria is proud to be an early mover with 5G technology, not just in Africa but all over the world. Thanks to the commitment of the Nigerian government, 5G became a reality early in Nigeria when only about 60 countries had access worldwide. In addition to that, the frequency spectrum band allocated to 5G will make the experience worthwhile for consumers.
Our goal as Airtel Nigeria, therefore, is to make 5G accessible and widespread in the country, we can only be limited by the limit of our imagination.Carl Cruz, Chief Executive Officer, Airtel Nigeria
