QNigeria’s much-awaited third 5G operator, Mafab Communications Limited, is set to fully compete with MTN, Glo, and Airtel as it invited users, urging them to purchase 5G routers on its website.
Mafab Communication, which was little known 10 months before the December 2021 auction, became the second-largest telco to secure one of the 5G licenses, according to the Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC), which shocked the telecommunications industry by outbidding listed company Airtel Nigeria.
But Mafab Communications took a slow path to bringing the service to market. This is coming over 2 years after it successfully secured a 5G license during an auction held on December 13, 2021.
According to the message on the website, users can now buy its routers for N50,000 using a link that redirects to Sterling Bank. Also, the company released its price list for its data bundles which ranges from a daily price of N350 for 500 MB to N20,000 for 140GB. MTN charges N22,000 for 120GB, while Airtel charges N20,000 for 120 GB.
A message on the Mafab communication website reads:
Experience ultra-fast data speed Download and upload massive files 100x faster, stream movies and concerts with zero lags, and enjoy enhanced VR/AR applications. “Our standalone 5G technology enables network slicing, which supports and fulfills a wide range of network requirements, allowing for improved user experience.
“A 5G standalone network is launched using 5G infrastructure. It is designed in a way that unlocks 5G’s full potential as it allows for transmission of 5G core into pieces that are tailor-made to meet the needs of consumers and businesses.”
Mafab communication also revealed that its service is now live in 6 states which are, Lagos, Abuja, Port- Harcourt, Kano, Kaduna, and Enugu.
Should I Go For Mafab 5G Router?
Like I’ll always advise, depending on what you do online. You can give Mafab 5G router a shot if their services are live in your location. For now, they have limited location coverage, compared to MTN, Airtel, and Glo.
