Equitel, Equity Group’s mobile virtual network operator, has announced the launch of LTE or 4G services, making it the fifth telco to run such a service in the country after Safaricom, Airtel, Telkom and Faiba.
Commenting on the launch of the new 4G service, Finserve Africa Managing Director, Lanre Bamisebi, who is also the Equity Group IT and Operations Director, noted that the upgrade would enhance customer experience, more so in the current environment where customers are working from home and require better connectivity.
“We are delighted to launch the Equitel 4G services in the market, in line with strengthening Equitel’s capability as a mobile virtual network operator (MVNO). The new Equitel 4G SIM will address the issues of slow internet connection and limited data coverage,” said Lanre.
Equitel has also launched new and affordable packages that will see their customers access the product.
“As part of the launch, we are offering a100% bonus to our customers by doubling their data bundles. We expect this to significantly accelerate our revenue growth and grow our active customer base,” added Lanre.

The MVNO also provides a distinctive, agile and secure mobile channel that seamlessly integrates banking and other financial products and services while providing value-added telco products and services.
