Rebranded NITEL snatching subscribers with number reservation campaign

The company plans to launch in three major Nigerian cities namely Lagos, Abuja, and Port Harcourt for the first stage of its launch.

Ntel is the new brand name which NATCOM will go by after it purchased defunct national carrier, NITEL.

In a move aimed at securing as many subscribers as possible within the shortest possible period, revamped national carrier (although now in private hands), Ntel, has rolled out a campaign through which Nigerians can reserve mobile numbers on its network.

The company plans to launch in three major Nigerian cities namely Lagos, Abuja, and Port Harcourt for the first stage of its launch. Other cities will go live in stages.

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.
