MTN Strengthens Position in Nigeria with 800Mhz Acquisition

Just about a week ago, we reported that MTN posted very strong numbers in Nigeria despite the pandemic wave of 2020.

The telecommunications giant is acting on that now, looking to achieve a deeper penetration in the country. As of the time of this writing, the company confirmed that it has acquired an additional 800MHz spectrum in the country.

This will allow them to better the services they are already delivering while also reaching more regions where the network might not have been readily available.

This acquisition is not only underway but has been completed by the telco. The selling partner is Intercellular Nigeria Limited, so all that is left is for MTN to start implementing and rolling out their added capacity.

Seeing how proactive this company can be, and the fact that Nigeria keeps showing its hand to be a strong market for them, we doubt that they are going to rest on these oars.
