NatCom Development & Investment Ltd (NatCom) acquired the core telecom assets, previously owned by NiTel/MTel (Nigeria’s national fixed and mobile operators), in a guided liquidation process. This process was supervised and approved by Nigeria’s Bureau of Public Enterprises and a High Court appointed liquidator. It completed in May 2015, from which date the NiTel/MTel core telecoms assets were wholly transferred to NatCom’s ownership.
NatCom Consortium bought over NiTeL/MTel with a $252.5 million bid and according to NatCom Consortium chairman Mr. Ayeni, they believe there is a still a vacuum in the telecommunications market and they are here to fill that vacuum. Consumers will be king and NatCom brand and service would be distinct and customer friendly.
NatCom will trade under a new brand name ‘Ntel.’ and it is preparing to launch a new 4G/LTE Advanced mobile network in 3 of Nigeria’s largest cities: Lagos; Abuja; and Port Harcourt.
