nTel Partnered With MTN and 9mobile to Implement National Roaming

You’ll recall that sometimes in December, ntel, Nigeria’s 4G/LTE broadband operator announced a national roaming field trial with 9Mobile (Dec 1st 2017 – January 31st 2018).

Now, nTel is planning to collaborate with 9mobile Nigeria and MTN Nigeria to roll out national roaming service in April. According to ntel spoke person 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.“It will help the network operators to become efficient and have less cost with the roll-out in 4G.
The planned roll-out with 9mobile is on commercial decision stage; MTN has agreed with the collaboration, and will be going for a trial period with ntel.

This is What it Means
  • nTel subscriber will be able to use 4G services everywhere there is 9mobile and MTN coverage once test is complete.
  • 9mobile users will be able to roam on ntel network once test is complete.
  • MTN users will be able to roam on ntel network once test is complete
ntel coverage is 72 per cent in Lagos, 92 per cent in Abuja and 60 per cent in Port Harcourt; in 18 to 24 months, coverage will be in 20 states.

This is an interesting news for ntel’s users because you’ll be able to make calls on 9mobile and MTN network if everything work as planned.
