Smile’s 4G/LTE Service now Live in Benin

by | Nov 13, 2015

Smile Communications has announced the most recent expansion of its 4G/LTE service to Benin City, Edo state.

This recent move follows earlier launch of the companies services in 4 other Nigerian cities –  Ibadan (where it piloted), Lagos, Abuja and Port Harcourt. The gradual city-by-city rollout is in line with Smile Communication’s masterplan to expand its rich while maintaining quality of services.

The company recently secured $365 million in funding to aid its African expansion plans. This came 3 months after they signed a 5-year contract with Ericsson to manage the company’s end-to-end service.

Founded in 2008, Smile Nigeria is a subsidiary of Smile Telecoms Holdings, which has operations in Tanzania, Uganda, Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) and an associate company in South Africa. Smile launched West Africa’s first true 4G LTE network in Ibadan in 2013.
