Well, finally, the transition is complete. Zain Nigeria is now Airtel Nigeria. This is the 6th mask that the 0802-0808 network will be putting on since 2001 when it arrived Nigeria as ECONET Wireless. New brand. New logo. New website. Same numbers. Hopefully, better services.
According to a news report by The Vanguard, the name change was announced at a colourful celebration in Abuja on Thursday.
Here’s the evolution chain: ECONET Wireless Nigeria >> Vodacom Nigeria >> Vmobile Nigeria >> Celtel Nigeria >> Zain Nigeria >> Airtel Nigeria.
