Equitel 4G SIM Card Rollout To Boost Connection Speeds

Equity’s mobile virtual network operator (MVNO) – Equitel – has launched fourth generation (4G) services. The new 4G broadband network offers faster speeds to browse, stream, download and upload for customers.

Finserve Africa Managing Director, Mr Lanre Bamisebi, who is also the Equity Group IT and Operations Director, noted that the upgrade would enhance customer experience, more so in the current environment where customers are working from home and require better connectivity.

“We are delighted to launch the Equitel 4G services in the market, in line with strengthening Equitel’s capability as a mobile virtual network operator (MVNO). The new Equitel 4G SIM will address the issues of slow internet connection and limited data coverage,” said Mr Bamisebi.

Equitel has put in place attractive data bundle offers to allow customers to enjoy the new 4G experience. “As part of the launch, we are offering 100% bonus to our customers by doubling their data bundles. We expect this to significantly accelerate our revenue growth and grow our active customer base,” added Mr Bamisebi.

During Equity Group’s Q1 2021 results announcement, Equitel registered a 14% growth in customer transactions from 65.4 million in Q1 2020 to 74.8 million in Q1 2021, while the value of transactions grew by 163% from Ksh160.5 billion in Q1 2020 to Ksh421.8 billion in Q1 2021.
