Code Division Multiple Access (CDMA) operator, Multi-Links Telkom, has gone live with its services in Sapele in Delta State and Suleja in Niger State.
Executive, Corporate Communications, Mr. Tayo Ekundayo, said that these were part of the on-going strategic expansion of services to the nooks and crannies of the country.
He said that Suleja is the most strategic town in Niger State after the state capital, Minna, hence Multi-Links had decided to give it a face lift with its services.
"Apart from its high profile commercial status, the town is even more strategic because of its proximity to the federal capital territory, Abuja, the nation’s federal capital," he said.
As said by him, the switch-on of Sapele is coming on the heels of the commencement of service in Warri another strategic town in the heart of Delta State.
Ekundayo in a press statement, at the weekend, quoted the Chief Sales and Marketing Officer, Multi-Links Telkom, Ms Dipuo Msimang, as saying that the company would not rest on its oars until the entire human communities in Nigeria are completely covered by the network.
Stressing that the company has embarked on a massive roll-out project that will see many cities, towns, villages and communities connected soon.
The national roll-out project, he said, is targeted at simultaneous roll-out in the six geo-political zones of the country.
"Services were recently deployed in Abaji, Akure, Akwanga, Bauchi, Benin, Jere, and Jos. Other areas are Kaduna, Kano, Katsina, Lokoja, Owo, Ondo, Warri and Zaria," he disclosed.
He noted that earlier, Multi-Links had roll-out services in Abeokuta, Abuja, Ejigbo, Gbongan, Ibadan, Ijebu-Ode, Ikire, Ile-Ife, Ilesha and Ilorin. In this category are also Lagos, Ogbomosho, Okene, Osogbo and Sagamu.
Apart from the faster rollout of services in many locations across the country, the new management has also brought stronger brand flavour to Multi-Links Telkom with the infusion of the expertise and efficient quality of service renowned from Telkom SA.
Emphasizing that Multi-Links Telkom is famous for its voice, internet and data services, recalling that recently, it was rewarded for its commitment to excellent service with the award of "Best Nigerian Fixed Telecom Operator."
