According to the reports, MTN claims the test run will only be available to already existing Visafone subscribers who is provisioned on 800 MHz band. This is a clear indication that MTN subscribers will not have to wait for long time before the service become available to all. According to a statement made by Amina Oyagbola, MTN executive:
“Our recent license acquisition further demonstrates our faith in the future of Nigeria, we believe in supporting the positive transformation of Nigeria and we have demonstrated this belief through the level of our investment since 2001, which currently stands at approximately $16 billion.”
Though there is no date to when the MTN 4G LTE test run will end but subscribers now have hope that the MTN 4G LTE will be pushed to all subscribers according to Richard Iweanoge:
“When we roll out fully, especially with our 2.6 GHz spectrum, the launch will help to enhance customer experience for our over 60 million subscribers, while ensuring greater coverage, access, affordability and ultimately a smart lifestyle for everyone,” he said.
