Ntel launches 4G network – in ghost mode

Today, Ntel announced that they have launched commercial operations in clusters in Lagos and Abuja. The catch is that nobody has any information on where to pick a SIM card. There is no such information in the press releases. Even the Ntel website is of no help.

Ntel launches 4G network - ghost

If you can get your hands on a SIM though, Ntel’s press release says they are offering free on-net calls for life for the first 100,000 subscribers to activate their lines, as well as “unlimited data usage for 3 months on select bundles”.

Ntel is promising fast broadband speeds if up to 230 Mbps. That sounds juicy. We wait still.

  1. Ntel’s press release says they are offering free on-net calls for life for the first 100,000 subscribers

    …holy Moses. I registered a number quite early. I pray I am one of the first 100k subscribers…

  2. This is going to cause chaos!

    “…free on-net calls for life for the first 100,000 subscribers to activate their lines”

    Apple products queues & black Friday will be child’s play oh.

  3. This is like a Linda Ikeja story of tech – all this drip drip of “news” that together amounts to ghost stories.

    Maybe masquerades are using it, and as we are not masquerades…

  4. But you people said the Ntel will be d cheapest and fastest network In Nigeria is it true?

    I rep naija vocals

    1. I’m sure fastest voice/data network. Cheapest? We’ll have to wait for that. Being new and knowing they’ll need to make money, it might not be best route to take. IF they can win the speed battle handdowns vis-à-vis cost, then the GSM coys might be in real soup especially in the major cities and amongst the main internet consumers.
