Rollout readiness was announced after the purchase of LTE company Direct on PC and technical upgrades as a result of contracts from role players such as Huawei.
Financed by Union Bank and First City Monument Bank (FCMB), the project was recently approved by the Nigerian Communication Commission (NCC).
Enlarged wireless capacity, mobile application devices and lower cost will be made available to SWIFT customers through the LTE launch.
SWIFT subscriber numbers will also grow as it adopts Direct on PC customers, following the acquisition.
Charles Anudu, managing director of SWIFT Networks, said: “This acquisition is a significant milestone in our journey to advance our competitive position in the high quality broadband segment and footprint in the Nigerian market.”
Anadu added SWIFT will continue its investments in technologies for constant improvement.
Mahesh Sadhuwani, vice president of Bhojraj Chanrai Group and Owners at Direct on PC, said: “SWIFT and DOPC are a perfect fit, as we share a common passion for innovation and customer satisfaction.”
HumanIPO reported last month on Ghana breaking SWIFT traffic records.
