ipNX Nigeria Limited launched its fibre-to-the-home (FTTH) network covering [parts of] Lagos, Abuja and Port Harcourt at a Press briefing yesterday. The Mobility.ng/CyberSchuulNews.com Partnership was present at the event to cover it.
Branded as FoS (Fibre optic Service), the service guarantees speeds starting from 4 Mbps, allowing users to connect at speeds at least 10 times faster than 3G, WIMAX-4G or DSL. The service is already available to homes in and businesses on Lagos Island, Victoria Island, Ikoyi and Lekki. Service will be extended to Ikeja, Apapa and Surulere from November 2013.
Group Managing Director, Mr. Ejovi Aror, told the audience at the launch that “As the cost of international bandwidth drops further, we will be able to offer more speed and lower pricing.” He said service will also launch very soon in Ekiti State at the behest of the State Government.
The event included demonstrations of the service for powering cable television, video conferencing and internet telephony, as well as testimonies from subscribers who are already using the service since the network rollout commenced in Q4, 2012. A special testimony was given by Mr Segun Ogunjobi, Chairman of Goshen Estate Lekki where residents have used the service for close to one year.
