Etisalat, despite offering just EDGE data services, continually received praise from users for the quality of their internet services.

So, one would expect that their 3G services will probably rank amongst the best. Expectedly, Etisalat also went for the latest 3G technology HSPA+ (3.75G), which offers blazingly fast speed of up to 42Mbps.

Users who have ignored Etisalat so far because of the limitations of EDGE are likely to begin reconsideration. In all, 3G on Etisalat makes it a lot more competitive in the marketplace. HSPA+ on Etisalat makes it a no brainer.

Etisalat launched in Nigeria in 2008. It had only a GSM license at launch hence it was only able to deploy EDGE data services.

However, in 2010 December, Etisalat agreed to purchase 3G license from Alheri Mobile Services Limited, a fully owned subsidiary of the Dangote Group.
