NTEL Nigeria is the first Telecommunications company in Nigeria to launch a 4G LTE service. At the inception of NTEL services, they only offered unlimited internet data access, but now they have both unlimited data access and capped data volumes.

(NatCom) in a liquidation process supervised and approved by Nigeria’s Bureau of Public Enterprises and a court-appointed liquidator. This liquidation process was concluded in May, 2015.
