Medallion eyes four cities expansion, NSE
Medallion Communications Limited, which builds and operates technologically advanced and secure neutral telecommunications infrastructure that enable the exchange of telecom traffic amongst the different operators, plans to roll out its services across four cities in Nigeria.
The move will enable telecom operators to offer efficient and cost effective services to the general public in a non-discriminatory manner. The company is also eyeing listing on the Nigerian Stock Exchange (NSE) as part of its strategic five years’ growth plan.
Mr. Ikechukwu Nnamani, president and CEO of Medallion Communications Limited who disclosed these when he led the company’s team on a courtesy call on the management of Communication Week Media Limited in Lagos, listed the cities as Enugu, Port Harcourt, Ibadan and Kano.
Mr. Nnamani said “Our goal is to launch in four cities; presently, we are in Lagos and Abuja. So, we want to put infrastructure in Enugu, Port Harcourt, Kano and Ibadan. From all indications we may be adding Asaba to the plan. This will be bringing data centre and interconnect exchange points to meet the needs of service providers, similar to what we have done in Lagos. Today, the Medallion facility in Lagos is the most connected point across the sub-region in terms of the point base and operators
“As part of the plans to grow the brand, we see ourselves going public by listing on the Nigerian Stock Exchange (NSE). That way, Nigerians will also participate in what we are doing. It is very key to us and we expect this to happen within the next five years”.
