MTN Nigeria office

MTN Nigeria on Thursday said that it had completed the acquisition of Visafone, the only surviving Code Division Multiple Access (CDMA) network in Nigeria’s telecommunications industry.

MTN Executive, Amina Oyagbola, made this known in a statement in Lagos.

Ms. Oyagbola said the acquisition of Visafone was in line with a continued commitment by MTN to improve the quality of broadband services for its subscribers.

She said the acquisition, which sought to leverage resources for service enhancement, was also reflective of the company’s concerted efforts to deepen the growth and roll out of broadband services across the country.

According to her, the acquisition of the CDMA network was in support of the National Broadband Plan, for the benefit of Nigerians.

”We are committed to exploring avenues for meeting our customers’ increasing data needs in line with our vision ‘to lead the delivery of a bold new digital world to our customers’.

”As we work to maximise our data capabilities towards achieving broadband of international quality, our objective is to ensure that Nigerians experience a boost in the quality of broadband internet services.

”This will translate to the much needed enhanced data speeds and value to enhance personal and business productivity.

”The acquisition of Visafone highlights MTN’s commitment to Nigeria. More capacity will facilitate enhanced product/service offerings and experience in the data space to the delight of our valued customers.

”Voice is still King. However, data is becoming increasingly important in our everyday lives and our energies are focused on enhancing data and internet services to the benefit of our customers and the country at large,” she said.

Visafone is one of the leading CDMA/ICT companies in Nigeria, offering a number of services, which include voice, high speed data (3G), internet and other Value Added Services (VAS).

Visafone also provides business solutions to small and medium sized companies and corporate organisations in Nigeria.

The News Agency of Nigeria reports that over 2,000 employees of Visafone were disengaged with effect from January 5 and were paid three months salaries as severance package.

The only employees said to been left are those in the personnel and transmission departments. (NAN)

    MTN is rubbish and they are the biggest liars and 419er ever. MTN needs be sued for Advance Fee Fraud over this issue. How can they say they have completed acquisition when, they went ahead and disconnected Visafone router users who have credits in their account and they told them to purchase MTN router and migrate and after purchasing, nothing works. Just purchase router, no internet and businesses are crumbling because of that. MTN is real 419. NCC, you are sleeping??????
