Ntel Partners With MTN NG And 9mobile For National Roaming

Sometime late last year, nTel announced a full national roaming agreement with 9mobile, where the roaming field trial was slated to run from December 2017 till the end of February, 2018.
Now, the popular 4G LTE broadband operator Ntel is planning to collaborate again with MTN Nigeria, one of the leading Telecom operators in the country, to roll out national roaming service in April.

According to a Ntel correspondent at NITRA,
“this roll-out will be in collaboration with two foremost operators, 9mobile Nigeria and MTN Nigeria; the service is expected to roll out in quarter two, April to be specific. Partnership with 9mobile which has 2G/3G will help customers to enjoy the best data with good speed.“
The planned roll-out with 9mobile is on commercial decision stage since the field trial has been successfully conducted, while MTN has agreed with the collaboration, and will be going for a trial period with ntel.

This partnership will help these carriers become efficient and run less cost with the 4G roll-out.

Benefit of Ntel Roaming on 9Mobile and MTN

  1. nTel subscriber will be able to use 4G services anywhere there is 9mobile and MTN coverage once test is complete.
  2. 9mobile users will be able to roam on ntel network once thr feature has been commercialized.
  3. MTN users will be able to roam on Ntel network once test is complete
Ntel started operation on Friday April 8, 2016, and they boast of an advanced mobile 4G/LTE network on the 900/1800 Mhz frequency bands which offers subscribers data, voice, and video services with 72 percent coverage in Lagos, 9% in Abuja and 60% in Port Harcourt.

On the other hand, 9Mobile is the 4th largest Telecom network in Nigeria with over 18 million active subscribers.

While MTN is the number one operator in Nigeria with about 52.3million subscribers.

The countries that have implemented the free roaming agreement are Senegal, Cote d’Ivoire, Guinea, Mali, Burkina Faso, Sierra Leone and Togo, with Benin enforcing the regional agreement on March 1 this year.

The initiative endorsed by African telecom regulatory authorities aims to create a common market in telecommunications in West Africa by allowing calls to be patched through a single network and received at local rates without roaming charges.

The Association of Licensed Telecommunications Operators of Nigeria had said that the elimination of call roaming charges in the ECOWAS sub-region would drive more traffic for Nigerian telecom operators.

This partnership will surely benefit all parties, including the users.
