Main One cable company, the broadband access provider in Nigeria, will not offer direct business deal with Internet users in Nigeria. They rather will use resellers like telecos and major ISPs. It seems that Main One is not going retail anytime soon. The impact? The resellers could yank up cost for the end users, though Tekedia thinks Main One will surely control that to scale quicker and faster.
The company has also developed a Partner Advantage Programme with its partners to provide benefits necessary for expanding existing businesses, creating new business opportunities and growth. MainOne’s cable initiative has a total of 5terabytes capacity, with 1.92 capacity built already, of which about 10 percent has already been let out in the last ten months.
MainOne’s Head, Marketing and Strategy, Mr Adebayo Oyewole confirmed that his company expects the price of bandwidth to come down with the landing of the undersea submarine cable. Anything short will undermine the whole vision of the project. He expects the global icons like Cisco, Microsoft, Oracle, among others to play key roles in their plan.
