Etisalat Nigeria subscribers reach 18 million

Acting chief executive officer at Etisalat, Matthew Willsher commented about the increase of subscribers and said the "achievement is evidence of the company’s commitment to the delivery of experiential customer service to its customers in the country."

"The swift and steady growth in our subscriber numbers is an evidence of the acceptance we have enjoyed from our customers and the superior products and services we offer. We are delighted to have been able to hit such a figure in just five years of commercial operations despite our position as the fifth entrant into the dynamic Nigerian telecoms market," Willsher added.

According to Etisalat it has operations in the Middle East, Asia and Africa with a total of 150 million subscribers.
