Chief Executive Officers (CEOs) and Chief Information Officers (CIOs) of corporate organisations have commended Smile Communications Nigeria Limited for providing high speed 4G LTE broadband services in the country. 

The corporate chieftains made up of Chief Executives as well as Chief Information and Chief Technology Officers of large and medium organisations from banks, oil and gas corporations, insurance companies, e-commerce, logistics firms among others, gave the commendation at an event hosted by Smile Communications, recently.

The event tagged: ‘A Connected Lifestyle’, focused on capacity building and the efforts put in by Smile Communications in meeting up with its brand promise for Nigerians.

They expressed delight that in less than three years of its services launch in Nigeria, Smile has remained dependable, providing high quality of connectivity with almost zero downtime.

The Managing Director, Smile Communications, Mr. Michiel Buitelaar, explained that with the deployment of 4G/LTE technology that runs on 800GHz spectrum, the company will continue to offer the best connectivity and high network availability index in the country. Buitelaar, who quoted the Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC) Monthly Internet Subscribers Data, which indicated that users on the country’s telecom networks increased to 83,362,814 as at February 2015, added that Smile understands the type of broadband services Nigerians have been waiting for, even at a reduced price and has consistently provided them with excellent services.

“We are prepared and working through densification of the network, where we see issues, we quickly address them. More so, we are deploying more capacity and the figure shows we are actually meeting our brand promise, which is for everybody to get six megabytes per second on, download, even at the busy hours of the day. Our team has always been on its oars to meet the target and we don’t get congestions,” Buitelaar said.
