Using the latest technology in mobile broadband through our plug and play modems, customers are assured of uninterrupted high speed internet anytime of the day, he said.

Mr Kalu said that to make the offer more exciting, Zantel has reduced the cost of its modems (EC 168) from 150,000/- to 99,9000/-, a 33 per cent price reduction.
