Nigeria’s largest city, Lagos, is about to receive a boost in its Internet connectivity. According to goingwimax.com, Swift Networks has already begun testing a WIMAX network system in different parts of the city. The tests involve five hundred participants, who were chosen based on their Internet broadband requirements.
Chuma Okoye, COO of Swift Networks, said that the new network is aimed at addressing connectivity needs in terms of video, fax, phone service, and broadband. If successful, the service will see local businesses and banks strongly benefiting from the higher speed of the 4G WIMAX network.
