Nigeria: MTN to Invest U.S.$1.3 Billion in Network Upgrade By 2013

Lagos — MTN Nigeria has said that it would invest $1.3 billion in infrastructure upgrade and expansion by 2013.

The Chief Executive Officer of MTN Nigeria, Mr. Brett Goschen, while speaking at the commissioning of MTN Y'ello City at Victoria Island Lagos yesterday, said that the firm is making this additional investment so as to increase capacity on its network.

According to him, the Yellodrome is a structure that epitomises the MTN Y'ello City, put in place to re-affirm its commitment in giving customers ready access to a wide selection of MTN products and data/ICT services in a conducive environment.

Goschen said aside the enormous investment that MTN was making with the roll out of several Yello City outlets, the company remained committed to improving its end-to-end customer experience "from the way we communicate our products, to the actual customer experience in any of our 16 service centres and 102 connect stores nationwide, to our network quality."
