Senior officials of Swedish equipment provider Ericsson are in Nigeria for talks with the second-largest mobile operator in the West African country on how to improve services.

Executive vice president Ragnar Back will lead other Ericsson's senior officials in the talks with Econet Wireless Nigeria (EWN), spokesman Emeka Opara said.

He said the visit was a follow-up to the signing of a U.S. $110-million network expansion deal with the Swedish company.

Currently, Ericsson is implementing the first phase of the expansion deal with Econet, while shipments for the second phase of the multi-million-dollar deal will commence soon, he said.

"When completed, the expansion will result in greater geographical coverage for the operator to double its network capacity," Ericsson's spokesman James Borup was quoted as saying.

He said the Swedish company would deliver radio network equipment to Econet which began operation in Nigeria in August 2001, along with another operator South Africa-based MTN.

The project would give Econet a flexible and robust network that would sustain rapid subscriber growth and facilitate easy introduction of services to customers, he added.

Econet currently has around 1 million subscribers on its network nationwide, coming second to MTN with 1.6 million.

Since their launch 3 years ago, two other operators—state-run NITEL and private firm Globacom—have been licensed to provide digital mobile services to this communications-starved country. (AFP)
