Gicell Wireless announced plans to roll out a mobile network with what it said is the cheapest call tariff ever in Nigeria. CEO Malam Usman Abubakar Gumi told the Daily Trust that the new CDMA2000 network in the 450 MHz band will debut in February, covering five states. Gicell, which has financial backing from the World Bank, aims to quickly expand that to nationwide coverage. The company has been designated a universal access service provider, focused on services for un-served and under-served areas in Nigeria. Gicell has secured a grant of USD 5 million from the World Bank for the project, and local banks, corporate groups and individual investors are also partly funding the project.
