I spoke with one of my clients today and he mentioned having issues with his Starcomms internet connection. According to him, when he called in the error, a staff told him that Starcomms has recently acquired Multilinks and MTS Wireless, and that they were currently upgrading their systems.
This is unconfirmed and the Starcomms staff may not have known what he was talking about.
However, if this is true, perhaps there is hope for CDMA mobile technology in Nigeria after all. That would mean that we have two fairly large CDMA networks on the field – Visafone and Starcomms.
If this is true. IF.
I do know that back in 2010, it was reported in the news that MTS was looking to sell off its spectrum to Starcomms. Also, in 2011, Starcomms was reported in the news as being in talks to acquire Multilinks.
Does anyone have a confirmation of this news? Do share!
