Airtel Nigeria to expand fibre cable network
Abuja: Airtel Nigeria, a subsidiary of Indian telecom major Bharti Airtel, will expand its cable transmission network in the African nation to boost its services, a top official of the company has said.

"In the first phase, we will be adding over 2,000 kilometres of fibre optic cable to our network, raising it to 6,000 km," Airtel Nigeria Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer Rajan Swaroop said in Lagos

He said that the company has doubled the capacity of its network since 2010, when Bharti Airtel took over the Nigerian assets of Kuwait-based Zain Telecom.

According to Swaroop, the investment and diligence being put in is transforming Airtel into a highly accepted brand by Nigerians.

Airtel Nigeria which started operation in 2010 was awarded the best GSM operator in the country in 2012 by the sectoral regulator Nigeria Communications Commission (NCC).

The NCC had arrived at the decision by using four parameters which include, Call Set-up Success Rate, Call Completion Rate, Drop Call Rate and Traffic Channel Congestion.
