Nigeria's second largest mobile operator Econet Wireless Nigeria has signed a U.S. $110 million-dollar (89 million-euro) network expansion deal with Swedish equipment provider Ericsson, company executives said.

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

He said the Swedish company would deliver radio network equipment to Econet, which began operation in Africa's most populous country in August 2001 along with another South Africa-based operator MTN. (AFP)
