New phone kiosks

Filed under: VSO — kevin @ 15:36

Over the past couple of weeks I’ve noticed new phone kiosks popping up around Abuja, lots of them. No equipment has been installed yet, but they seem to have solar-powered lighting. From the name of the company I’d guess they’re going to be using a wireless network for their payphones.

The city is still littered with old Nitel payphones, none of which have worked for a few years. I’ll be interested to see how the new payphones (when they appear) compete with the many roadside “business centres” (GSM call vendors).
