InterC

Another one? yes. That right there is screenshot from this site. It belongs to a (yet another) 4GLTE provider launching today in Nigeria. They are called InterC and according to their locations page, they will operate in Abuja, Port Harcourt, and Kaduna at first, before rolling out to Lagos and other locations later. So, there’s InterC, Smile, Spectranet, Ntel, Swift, and (soon) MTN. All fighting for the same users, all buying bandwidth from the same company. Like Bankole said this morning, 4G LTE is the new party pack, and all the party pack distributors are using from the same vendors, lol.

Anybody remember those Intercellular x “Hello Moto” ads from the early days of GSM in Nigeria? Yeah. This isn’t as much of a launch as it is a resurrection. For their relaunch, InterC is partnering with Transsion Holdings (makers of Infinix, Tecno, and iTel phones, which explains the Infinix promo on their site), Ringo Communications, and Yudala. They are offering fast internet at low prices – like everybody else. In the same vein, they are offering free internet for the first month, and 25% off on the second. I’m almost certain they will deliver all that to their early adopters. But the kernel is in keeping up those claims when they achieve scale.

Update: an earlier version erroneously stated that the operational areas are Lagos, Abuja, Port Harcourt and Kaduna. The post has been updated to reflect that the Lagos rollout will come in a later batch.
