Delta, A’Ibom, Abuja, others get new Internet service provision
•Tizeti begins recruitment of graduate trainees
Ten states, including Delta, Akwa Ibom, Cross River, Abia, Anambra, Imo, Enugu, Abuja, Kano, and Kaduna, are to experience new wave of Internet service provision following the expansion by Tizeti to the states, where it claimed that the demand for unlimited and cost-effective broadband internet is largely unmet.
Tizeti, while announcing the expansion of the service, said the move is part of its commitment to widening digital inclusion in Africa with affordable broadband connectivity, particularly to the continent’s underserved populations.
The firm said the launch of the service in those states will provide significant opportunities for these states that have not had adequate broadband infrastructure, and this will improve the competitiveness of the states with high-speed, and affordable broadband Internet.
Tizeti said it offers residential and business plans that are designed to meet the needs of all types of users, from casual to business customers. “With speeds up to 1000 MBPS, Tizeti’s customers can easily access the Internet to work remotely, or in the office; learn online, stay connected with friends, and stream online content.”
Tizeti’s founder and Chief Executive Officer, Kendall Ananyi, commented: “We are excited to expand our broadband Internet services to more locations in Nigeria. Reliable and affordable Internet connectivity is still limited to a few states. We will build last-mile digital infrastructure in these states that will move Internet capacity to them and help millions of Nigerians participate and contribute to the digital economy. “
Internet access in these states will also complement existing or new initiatives by the state governments, for eGovernment implementation, digital access, and investment promotions, especially as many states are implementing robust digital agendas.”
Tizeti said it will build brand-new, solar-powered, 4G-capable towers in these cities and leverage expansive fiber networks built by some of its partners, including MainOne and Facebook, to bring millions of people online, and deliver life-changing socio-economic opportunities that access to the internet provides. Tizeti is currently available in Lagos, Ogun, Oyo, Rivers, and Edo States.
Tizeti’s Chief Operating Officer, Ifeanyi Okonkwo, said: “Tizeti was built to tackle poor Internet connectivity not only in Nigeria but on the continent as a whole, by developing a cost-effective solution from inception to delivery, for reliable and uncapped internet access for potentially millions of Africans.
“Our launch in these states will drive digital adoption, with huge implications for online learning, eCommerce, and entertainment. Interested users can pre-sign up at www.wifi.com.ng/signup as installations will start May 1st, 2023.
Ahead of this launch, the company plans a mass recruitment to fill up new roles across Nigeria. Tizeti is recruiting graduate trainees into different departments: Field Sales Engineering, Network Operations Center, Human Resources, Administration, Sales and Marketing, Finance, and Customer Service. All trainees must have a minimum of Second-Class Upper degree in relevant fields. Interested applicants can apply at www.tizeti.com/careers.
