Why Etisalat chose us to support their expansion in Nigeria
In May 2009 Etisalat asked us to provide cellular backhaul for their Nigerian mobile network. Primarily they chose us because of our specialist local knowledge in Nigeria and West Africa and the on-the-ground support we could offer.
Steven Evans (CEO of Etisalat Nigeria) explains why they chose us in a little more detail:
‘Given the rapid rate of mobile adoption in Nigeria and what this represents in terms of opportunity, Nigeria is undoubtedly a key market for Etisalat. It was therefore key for us to find a partner that understands both the local market requirements as well as the complete technology landscape across Africa. As the most successful supplier of satellite cellular backhaul in Africa, Gateway Communications has expertise in both these areas. We are therefore confident that our desire to roll out our services across Nigeria in the shortest possible time will benefit from this promising business relationship.’
