Nigeria’s broadband services provider, Smile, has announced that it has extended its coverage area to Kaduna, Onitsha and Asaba.
According to the firm, the expansion is to help drive the national broadband penetration in Nigeria, Africa’s most populous country.
According to a statement from the internet service provider, individuals and corporate organizations in the three cities can now experience Smile’s “super fast and super reliable” network which runs on 4th Generation Long-Term Evolution (4G LTE) technology.
Chief Marketing Officer of Smile, Alero Ladipo, said the firm’s network coverage has remained a great delight to its customers.
“The network expansion that saw us in three major Nigerian cities almost at a go reaffirms our belief in Nigeria and our determination to serve Nigerians. Our goal is to provide Nigerian broadband internet users with speed, quality, reliability and simplicity. Our vision of becoming the broadband internet provider of choice in Nigeria has guided us in everything from selecting our people and partners to choosing the best technologies and creating innovative and relevant products and services,” she said.
Ladipo also assured Smile customers in Kaduna, Onitsha and Asaba of unmatched services. She promised that the firm will continue to share the promise of digital citizenship with millions of Nigerians.
Founded in 2007, Smile is fast spreading its tentacles all over Nigeria and Africa as a whole. The firm says it aims to become the choice for super-fast internet connectivity and voice services in Africa.
It added that its objective is to provide over 300 million potential customers across Africa with high quality services to accelerate development and wealth creation in the continent.
