Leading telecoms operator, Airtel Nigeria has been described as a leader in creating for its millions of subscribers innovative value-added offerings for best telecommunications experience.
The new Chief Marketing Officer of the company, Olu Akanmu, made this assertion recently in Lagos while speaking on Airtel’s 2Good Times, an innovative telecom package that enables subscribers on the network to choose from a range of flexible service plans.
“Airtel is committed to being the innovation leader in this market, and more of this kind of products is coming from Airtel. This is the first choose-your-own-affordable time belt telecom product in Nigeria. What we are saying is that there is no other network that offers you an affordable call rate of 10k per second between 5 and 7 am or between 1 and 3.59 pm.”
The vastly experienced international marketing strategist also called on families and friends to maximize the opportunities affordable on the 2Good Times platforms to bridge and strengthen relationship ties which he said often come under severe strain due to certain compelling economic and environmental factors.
“Airtel is committed to making that difference in the life of every Nigerian. What we have seen is that a lot of people wake up very early in the morning without being able to see their families and talk with them. But with Airtel 2Good Times, they can do that now. If you choose a traffic time, for instance 5-7 am as the time you consider your affordable time, you can call them at 10k per second and be able to talk much more with them. This is one more reason to be on the Airtel network.”
Meanwhile, Airtel Nigeria has assured of its readiness to lead the pack in providing top quality telecoms experience to the Nigerian public.
The chief operating officer and executive director of the company, Deepak Srivastava gave this assurance recently in Lagos while commenting on the company’s efforts geared towards improved quality of service.
Mr. Srivastava who recounted some of the initiatives undertaken by the telecoms giant said it had made substantial investment in capacity building, covering network capacity expansion, quality of service and visible broadband access among others.
“We have recently set up a state-of –the-art data centre in Lagos which is the biggest across our African markets; it is the most modern data centre, and it indeed replaces most of the legacy equipment that this company had. More importantly, we have increased the capacity of our network; we have actually more than doubled the capacity of our network, and this means we can still have more subscribers and not face congestion. So, we will always invest ahead of time, we will always invest ahead of what the market needs to make sure that we give good quality experience to our customers.
“We have also upgraded our equipment in the field which is why our internet experience is the best in the country. We have rolled out the widest 3.75G network in the country with presence in 75 cities and towns in Nigeria which is by far the largest compared to any other telecom operator in this country, and we will continue to invest in making sure that we take internet experience to the far regions of the country because with internet comes prosperity.”
