According to an article by the Leadership Newspapers, MTN Nigeria is just about set to commence operations using the high speed LTE (Long Term Evolution) band in some Nigerian cities come July 2016. 
The move follows the completion of MTN's acquisition of CDMA operator Visafone for N47.5 billion ($238 million). The deal would grants MTN access to Visafone's 2.1 million subscribers and frequency on the 800MHz band which could be used for 4G services. MTN plans to launch its LTE services on about 1,500 LTE collocated sites.
