MTN to Spend More Than $1 Billion to Improve Nigeria Network

MTN Group Ltd., Africa’s largest mobile-phone operator, will spend more than $1 billion this year to improve its network in Nigeria after

the nation’s phone regulator last year demanded better service.

“The investment will relieve congestion and improve the quality of the network,” Akinwale Goodluck, a spokesman for MTN Nigeria, said by

mobile phone from Lagos today. The funds will be directed toward second- and third-generation technologies, MTN’s core network, and power

generators to run transmission stations, he said.

Last year, Nigeria’s National Communications Commission told mobile-phone companies MTN, Globacom Ltd. and Bharti Airtel Ltd.’s Nigerian

unit to improve mobile network services or they would be stopped from signing up new customers.

MTN, which operates in 20 other countries in Africa and the Middle East, according to the Johannesburg-based company’s website, spent $1

billion on its Nigerian network in 2011 and its investments will help achieve the commission’s goal, Goodluck said.

MTN Nigeria is the biggest phone operator in Africa’s most populous country. The company had more than 40 million users on its mobile

network in June 2011, according to the commission. Globacom ranked second with more than 19 million and Bharti Airtel was third with about

16 million.
Hungary's Magyar Telekom launches LTE in Budapest

Magyar Telekom has become the first mobile operator in Hungary to launch commercial LTE services.

The Deutsche Telekom subsidiary switched on its high-speed mobile broadband network on 1 January, and in a bid to attract early adopters is

offering a discount for the first four months of a 24-month contract to customers who sign up between now and the end of March. The price

plan, called Net&Roll 4G, comes with an LTE-enabled dongle.

Magyar Telekom's LTE network is currently accessible in 10 districts of Budapest, which the company claimed equates to around 40% of the

population of Hungary's capital city. Magyar Telekom said it plans to extend its footprint to the whole of Budapest during 2012. The new

network is a result of the company's HUF30 billion (£79 million) network modernisation plan announced in May 2011 that also includes

continued investment in HSPA+ infrastructure.

The commercial launch follows a three-month trial using 80 base stations that began in October 2011. By the end of the year the number of

LTE base stations in operation had approximately tripled.

Magyar Telekom CEO Christopher Mattheisen at the time highlighted the demand for mobile Internet services in Hungary, noting that 70% of

the handsets sold by the operator in 2011 were smartphones.

"Those involved in the [LTE] tests mentioned that the 4G/LTE network ensures a significantly enhanced average response time in the use of

Internet applications compared to the previous mobile technologies," said Magyar Telekom, in a statement on Monday. "They also frequently

mentioned as a positive trait the significant increase in upload speed."

Magyar Telekom is one of four players cleared on Monday by Hungary's telco regulator the National Media and Infocommunications Authority

(NMHH) to participate in its upcoming 900-MHz auction, due to begin on Thursday and scheduled to be completed by the end of January.

The other bidders are Vodafone and Telenor's respective local units, and a consortium comprised of Hungary's state-owned postal firm Magyar

Posta, state-owned electricity provider Magyar Villamos Muvek, and MFB Invest – a unit of Hungarian development bank MFB.
