In order to deepen internet penetration in Lagos and beyond, Spectranet 4G LTE, an internet service provider, is seeking partnership with the Lagos State Infrastructure Maintenance and Regulatory Agency (LASIMRA) towards improving communication and internet penetration in the state.
The partnership is part of the company’s goal to boost internet penetration in the country.
Speaking during the visit of members of the LASIMRA team to Spectranet 4G LTE office in Lagos recently, the Chief Technical Officer, Spectranet 4GLTE, Arun Panda said the presence of LASIMRA would further boost the company’s commitment to promoting best management relationship between it and regulators at both state and federal levels, designed at achieving government’s desire to improve internet penetration in the state and beyond.
The visit, according to Panda, came at a time when Spectranet is planning to start investing in fibre optics cable in the state.
The General Manager, LASIMRA, Bebajide Odekunle, said: “Lagos State government is happy with the effort of Spectranet to improve internet penetration in the state, hence the need to visit as well as inspect the Spectranet 4G LTE plans, based on the state’s goal of ensuring that all organisation complies with its rules and regulations.
According to him, the responsibility of LASIMRA among many others is to ensure compliance in the area of infrastructural development.
“Therefore by visiting Spectranet, we have been assured from our initial communications that they are law abiding. Odekunle said the visit was also to solidify the relationship between the organisations and to ensure that values are properly exchanged for the benefits of both parties including the consumers and Lagosians.
Spectranet 4G LTE plans to commence the laying of fibre optic cables across the state in specific areas identified and approved by LASIMRA, as part of its goal of improving internet penetration in the state.
