Airtel Nigeria’s toast 2GoodTimes
Management at Airtel Nigeria has launched 2GoodTimes, a telecom package that is marketed as the first choose-your-own affordable time belt telecom product in the country.
CEO of Airtel Nigeria, Olu Akanmu, has urged its mobile subscriber base to take advantage of the flexible service plans built into the package
Akanmu said, “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.”
A call was made by the company to people 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.
His words, “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.”
Deepak Srivastava, chief operating officer and executive director of Airtel Nigeria, commented on the company’s efforts towards achieving improved quality of service.
Srivastava said the company 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.”
