Tizeti, West Africa’s pioneer solar-based internet service provider, has announced the launching of its 4G LTE network in ten new states in Nigeria. This aligns with its commitment to widening digital inclusion in Africa with affordable broadband connectivity, particularly to the continent’s underserved populations.
The 1o additional states are Delta, Akwa Ibom, Cross River, Abia, Anambra, Imo, Enugu, Abuja, Kano, and Kaduna, where the demand for unlimited and cost-effective broadband internet is largely unmet.
With the latest expansion, residents and businesses in these states will now have access to unlimited, high-speed broadband connectivity from Tizeti at an initial offer price of thirty thousand Naira (N30,000 or $40) per month for fixed broadband and installation costs, a reduction from sixty-nine Thousand, five hundred Naira (N69,500).
“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.
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.
The launch will also present significant opportunities for these states, which do not have sufficient broadband infrastructure like Lagos. This will increase the competitiveness of the states that have access to Tizeti’s high-speed, reasonably priced broadband internet.
Tizeti provides residential and commercial plans that are intended to satisfy the requirements of all users, from casual to business clients.
To bring millions of people online and provide the transformative socio-economic opportunities that access to the internet provides, Tizeti will leverage the expansive fibre networks built by some of its partners, including MainOne and Facebook, and build brand-new, solar-powered, 4G-capable towers in these cities.
“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”, says Tizeti’s Chief Operating Officer, Ifeanyi Okonkwo.
“Our launch in these states will drive digital adoption, with huge implications for online learning, eCommerce, and entertainment.”
“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”, he adds.
Tizeti’s mass recruitment
The Nigerian Internet Service Provider (ISP) startup has also commenced mass recruitment to fill new roles across Nigeria as part of its expansion drive to provide more internet for Nigerians.
The startup will conduct a nationwide recruitment drive to fill vacant positions before this launch. The company is seeking graduate trainees in its administration, sales and marketing, finance, human resources, network operations centre, and customer service divisions.
A Second-Class Upper degree in a related discipline is required of all trainees.
The World Wide Web Foundation asserts that providing fast internet in Africa will enable billions more people to access the Internet and benefit from its transformative socioeconomic opportunities. With cutting-edge technology and capabilities, businesses like Tizeti are tackling the digital infrastructure gaps in Africa to enhance development results for millions of people.
