5G Network Launched By MTN In Enugu

In line with its plans to cover selected five states with 5G network within on months, MTN at the weekend launched its 5G network in Enugu State. 

The aim of rolling out plans in the selected states which include Abuja, Lagos, Kano, Port-Harcourt and Enugu was to enable people within the state to experience the power of 5G network.

MTN also called on Nigerians to migrate to MTN 5G network to experience fast network connection and easy communication

They made this known during the MTN's 5G hologram tour held at Polo Park Mall, (ShopRite), Abakaliki Road, old GRA, Enugu.

Speaking with journalists during the event, the Regional Broadband Sales Manager for Eastern region, Ibifiri Uhuegbulem, disclosed that the launch of 5G network was for easy and fast network connection to Nigerians. 

She however stated that customers do not need to buy a new phone or SIM card to be able to connect to the 5G network, adding that it only requires visiting MTN office or outlet to upgrade from 3G network to 4G.

"What we are doing today is to showcase what the 5G network can do and also the star in this location. We have done that in Abuja, Kano and today, we are in Enugu.

"What we do in MTN is to make it easier for Nigerians to connect to internet. We noticed during Covid-19 that Nigerians find it difficult to access Internet and in September, 2022 MTN came up with a strategy for us to sell fixed wireless access to make it faster in accessing internet.

"So, that's where you hear about our MIFI, HI-NET FLEX and thus one newly introduced in September, 2022, our 5G device. 

"This is much faster for internet connection, browsing, and also for gaming. Before now we had been in Abuja with this same 5G Hologram.

"Subsequently, we shall be having it in Port-Hacourt, Lagos and Ibadan as well.

"What you need to do is to visit any of our outlets and ask to migrate from your present 3G to 4G and once that sim is migrated and you have a 5G device, either a 5G apple phone, Samsung, or any android phone, and then you're able to connect to our 5G network", she said.

Highlight of the event was the stage performance of some artists from the zone, such as Snowdog, 042 Flemzy, Godskid and many others.
