MTS goes to Abeokuta

IN a landmark move, pioneer wireless phone operator, MTS First Wireless, weekend, went live in Abeokuta, capital of Ogun State with the commissioning of its new Code Division Multiple Access (CDMA2000 1X) network.

This would enable subscribers on the Abeokuta MTS network to be on numbering scheme of 039-70 XXXXX.
Head, Corporate Affairs at MTS, Mr. Reuben Muoka, disclosed this, saying that the launch of the company’s second service area network is coming barely a month of resumption of the new CEO of the company, Mr. Dem Eleso who had promised a rapid expansion of the MTS network.

This addition, he said, coincided with the coronation ceremonies of the Alake of EgbaLand, Oba Michael Adedotun Aremu Gbadebo.

MTS also becomes the First among the private telecoms operators to launch
services in Abeokuta, Ogun State.


The chief executive also pointed out that initially, a limited service area of Egbaland, Abeokuta, will be available while services would be extended to other areas as soon as possible.

"We are excited about this development which marks not only the First, but a significant step in taking the MTS footprint outside Lagos and its environs", Mr. Eleso said.

He said the roll out presents a significant opportunity for MTS stakeholders, especially the potential subscribers in Abeokuta who will begin to enjoy the kind of affordable wireless telephony and Internet services currently being enjoyed by MTS subscribers in Lagos.

Mr. Eleso also said it is the new vision of the new MTS to let subscribers
outside Lagos to experience the affordable services offered by MTS in
Nigeria.


He said subscribers using MTS services in Lagos could now travel to Abeokuta by roaming their lines, while those entering Lagos from Abeokuta can do the same, as the two networks will offer the same quality of voice, SMS and Internet services.

Currently, MTS offers integrated telephony services including wireless voice telephony and Internet services using desktop and mobile phone handsets.
