E.F. Network gets NCC nod to provide internet services in Nigeria, vows to crash cost


THE Nigeria Communications Commission has licensed a multinational technology company and major global player in wireless/virtual technologies, E. F. Network Limited, to provide internet services in Nigeria.

The approval was given after the company satisfied all requirements and qualifications stipulated by the NCC for granting such licence.

With the licensing of E.F. Network, competition is expected to increase among operators and make internet services more readily available, which will eventually lead to a crash of the cost of internet usage in the country.

The grant of internet license is coming barely three months after the company introduced a revolutionary product called efphontaxi.com, a high tech anti-theft and anti-kidnapping application that has the capacity to minimise activities of phone thieves and kidnappers in the country.

The Chairman/CEO, E.F Network, Gideon Egbuchulam, said the licence would mark a positive revolution in Nigeria’s internet services as it would soon be more available, faster and affordable to Nigerians.

He said the provision of internet services by the company would enhance the efficiency and effectiveness of efphonetaxi and other online services offered by it.
