Airtel Nigeria has enhanced its network capacity and quality with the roll-out of the 3.75 Generation (3G) services across the 36 states in Nigeria and the Federal Capital Territory, Abuja.
With the pan-Nigeria launch of 3.75 services, the company is set to boost customers’ experience with high speed mobile broadband and internet access, empowering telecoms consumers to watch live TV, download music, make video calls as well as send and receive emails using enabled devices.
Riding on the strength of the 3.75G network, Airtel also announced up to 50 per cent bonus offer on purchase of any of its data plan bundles; free 2GB on purchase of data dongle and a free one month subscription for BlackBerry users who activate a two-month plan.
In addition, new customers on the network will enjoy a bonus N100 airtime on any recharge from N100 and above, plus complimentary 10MB data valid for seven days.
Airtel Nigeria chief executive Rajan Swaroop said in a media release that the latest innovation is “timely and a direct response to the yearnings of telecommunications consumers across the globe and especially in Nigeria where technological advancement is moving with the speed of light in line with global trends.”
“Today, we are the only operator with five different channels for data bundle activation and our 3.75G capacity is up to 42 megabytes per seconds. This is in sync with the commitment we made to Nigerians on commencement of operation,” said Swaroop.
To activate and experience the Airtel 3.75G data speed transmission, customers are advised to send a preferred product code via SMS to 141 or dial *141*1# on their mobile device. Customers can also activate data bundle plans via My Airtel My Offer (MAMO) toll-free Interactive Voice Response on 141, while those who prefer the WAP or WEB route option can activate through Airtellive.com and selfcare.ng.airtel.com, respectively.
Airtel also provides after sales support and product information on its 3.75G or any data related issue to customers through well trained and dedicated staff at its showrooms and retail distribution outlets across the country.
