One thing I like about the 4G service is, the comfort and ease with which browsing is done. It doesn’t buffer, therefore it save you us time” he stated.

Sim swaps were done at banks, supermarkets and campuses among other places.

Africell is again bridging the gap by introducing subscribers the 4GLTE environment which will increase learning and discovery.
