According to media reports, the number reservation campaign has been hugely successful with the company saying that the first batch of subscribers to reserve numbers on its network, will be recognized as pioneers on the mobile network.
Kamar Abass, Ntel CEO, said the company is a fully Nigerian company that is fully committed to empowering Nigerians through its technologically advanced pure-play 4G LTE network.
“We are offering Pioneer status to the first batch of subscribers on our network. Those who reserve their numbers, and subsequently SIM-activate with us, will be the vanguard of a select corps of privileged subscribers,” Abass said.
Innovation Village reports that the company said the number reservation campaign, which will end on April 8, 2016, has already drawn millions of Nigerians to Ntel's dedicated site.
