MTN Acquires Visafone – Possibility of Converting Their Broadbrand to Support 4G LTE in Nigeria

For heavy users like myself who has been waiting patiently for a 4G LTE coverage in Nigeria, well it seems the wait is over as The biggest Network in Nigeria has recently acquired Visafone which is 4G enabled

Well you can say The year is still unfolding and many more things are still going to happen. I guess you remember your beloveth Visa fone, the Nigeria’s last standing CDMA operator, who won’t hesitate to give you 10 terrabytes of blackberry data for just N1,000 is now dead as it has been acquired by MTN Nigeria.

Lots of things has been going underground and according to info spreading across, Visafone staffs has been retrenched or lay off, and MTN is set to work on converting existing infrastructure and software to support 4G LTE in Nigeria.

Meaning with or without the unfulfilling promises of ntel, later in the future MTN NG will bring you 4G LTE just like they did in Cameroon.

Those of you who are conversant with this story earlier on, you’ll remember that Visafone’s CDMA licence covers a frequency band that is hot for LTE operations.

The hour has come to liberate the world from the oppression of 3G network, through the introduction of 4G LTE, and I’m sending MTN to pioneer this transformation agender even though they are still wearing the same boxers with NCC. Lol

This is why I know that those of you still buying and using smartphones that doesn’t support 4G will soon throw it away.

Well fingers crossed till 4G LTE pops up on my umi rome.
