MTN takes advance Value Added Services to WAFICT’12

Leading mobile operator in Nigeria, MTN, has advanced strategies to take advanced Value Added Services (VAS) at the 2012 West African ICT (WAFICT) Congress holding at the Expo Hall of Eko Hotel between May 8 and 10, 2012.
The organizers of WAFICT informed that MTN Nigeria, is set to dazzle its customers with range of new Value Added Services with several new mobile devices and technologies which are enriching the ease of internet, data and mobile communications for millions of Nigerians.

Chief host of the event and Editor-in-Chief, IT & Telecom Digest, Mr. Mkpe Abang, noted that the operator in its tradition will occupy a strategically expanse location at the exhibition hall of the Congress to display its latest offerings of technologies.

MTN, which was one of the major sponsors of the event last year, is set to leverage on the capacity crowd that usually throng the Congress to unveil its array of new exciting products.
With the theme ‘Bridging West Africa’s Digital Divide Through Broadband,’ he said, the fourth WAFICT Congress organised by the acclaimed Africa’s foremost ICT magazine, IT & Telecom Digest, will bring together telecom regulators and operators across the sub-region with top notch speakers, to chart the course for the industry’s growth.

Abang said that from the resounding success in last year’s outing, WAFICT Congress 2012, with the reputation as the leading ICT conference for the sub-region, will define the direction operators and players in the region will follow in the years ahead, the organisers have said.
“WAFICT 2012 is a grand platform to hear from Governments and Regulators in West Africa on their policies on broadband and strategies for deployment; from equipment manufacturers, mobile operators, telecom operators, Internet Service Providers, experts, and many more, from across the world, what potential exists in broadband and their offerings for the sub-region,” he said.
Adding that broadband was chosen as the key area to focus attention because after over a decade of exciting growth in mobile voice, and in tandem with global trends, broadband is naturally the next phase of the telecom revolution.
Governments in the sub-region, he says, have a role to provide the enabling laws, policies and environment to encourage investment in the sector.
“And, WAFICT 2012 provides them that platform to make these programmes and policies known to potential investors while at the same time creating the awareness of such policies for the knowledge of the citizenry,” he declared.

As said by him, this year’s WAFICT Congress and Exhibition is set to open new horizons, introduce new technologies and provide greater insights for governments and regulators in the sub-region to benefit from new trends and potentials in the technological arena.
