Affirming this in a statement, Starcomms chief executive officer (CEO), Mr. Maher Qubain, said telecom subscribers in Katsina should end their search for the best of voice and data experience as the telco has extended its reach to the city.

He said that Starcomms, a leading Code Division Multiple Access (CDMA) is a triple play network that has delighted Nigerians in other parts of the country with effective voice and data services.

“These comprise of the fixed wireless and the roaming line services and come with value added services like call waiting and missed call notification,” he said.

Highlighting that call waiting services affords subscribers to carry out two conversations interchangeably and at the same time sustaining both calls. “The missed call notification informs the subscribers of all the calls they missed when they switch off or move out of service range,” he said.

Equally, Maher said, Starcomms customers in Katsina could now take advantage of several other products and services in its basket, including the 1x CDMA Internet access, especially the highly affordable Starcomms Neo, which will give them the benefit of surfing the web at a cost effective rate.

In addition, he said, this comes with free internet access of one hundred hours for the first month of installation.

Katsina, the capital city of the state that bears the same name and its surrounding villages will enjoy all other Starcomms offerings for both business and pleasure.

One of the entry point benefits that Katsina enjoys is the Starcomms Smart Centre.

“This innovative small scale business concept is designed to empower Katsina subscribers of Starcomms through the pay phone business,” he said, noting that it is a venture that provides more profit and more opportunity for operators to enjoy the latest technology being delivered by Starcomms for better telephony in the country.

“With two models in place: Smart Centre for the youth, and business people, the ultimate aim is the economic prosperity of the operator in terms of profit.
