As of mid-2012, Nigerian LTE deployment plans have translated into marketing buzz. Globacom created the first buzz in 2011 and CDMA operator Zodafone followed in 2012. Like for WiMAX, the hype is much fuelled by infrastructure suppliers who put forward benefits such as advanced mobile broadband capabilities ALL NEW AGENDA and the introduction of new rich multimedia services.
