NuRAN Wireless Inc. (‘Nuran Wireless” or the “Company”) (CSE:NUR) (OTC:NRRWF), a leading supplier of mobile and broadband wireless solutions to connect the next billion is pleased to announce that it has received an order for approximately $1,254 Million of its LiteCell 1.5 to be deployed for a Tier One operator in Nigeria.
On February 23, 2017, Nuran had previously announced that its GSM LiteRAN 2G solution was selected by Global Communications Extension Services Ltd (“GCES”), a wholesale operator, for an initial deployment in Nigeria for a Tier One mobile operator.
Nigeria has the largest rural population in Africa with over 95 million people living in these remote and rural areas. The mobile phone penetration rate is at 81% and mostly within the urban region. With NuRAN’s solution, the Mobile Network Operators (MNO) and/or their wholesale partners now have an alternative to bring connectivity to these underserved areas with an economically viable solution compared to typical expensive wireless infrastructure. If this deployment proves to be successful, it will lead to many additional sites to be installed over the next three years.
