its a very nice investment that Celtel could expand their scope in Africa thru Nigeria.
I hope this will create more opportunities in the nigeria busines environment
obviously every one wants to be successfull but i am intrested in those who will go for innovatios.kudos 2 celtel formerly vmobile
I use this medium to welcome celtel into the Nigerian market. I hope they will provide good services that will compete favourably well with the other two major networks (mtn and glo). Thanks.
Heart warming news. Hope celtel will be able to set a very good high standard in term of quality for other major networks to do catch up. Welcome celtel.
I just have this feeling that if celtel makes just that one “right move”, all other networks may virtually wee in their pants, while celtel breaks-even, even before they think of it. So celtel, make that right move that’s going to “make lives better” like you’ve promised.
I have nothing to say much for now,but Kudos to celtel for sinking that decent $$ into Nigerian economy.I hope to see a bazillion opportunities.Welkom!!!
good ldears let us get it ontime
i believe better days are here for telecommunications in Nigeria with the arrival of Celtel.I’m looking forward to better services on its gsm network like we have in other countries like the United Kingdom and America
welcome celtel as you promise the people of nigeria that there lifes will never remain the same by making their lifes better.
Vmobile has been my favourite network, i hope you celtel takes it to a higher level.To make life better!!!

This is a welcome opportunity and service in Africa. If Celtel can convince me more I’ll jump at it, fast! Looks nice…
cant wait to feel celtel big promo and stuffs.cos i know u can do the thing.habi no be so .just do ham make dem know say na we be baba for communication ke.dont stop just keep flyin
I urge CELTEL Nigeria to keep on fulfiling her promise of making life better. I urge them to try to provide us 3G(UMTS)Service
I welcome the idea of Celtel coming to take over Vmobile and its customers to a greater height.
I have decided not to change over to any network since I am using Celtel.
I am concerned about: (1) Celtel reducing the 12 free monthly SMS to 6, while Celtel came to add and not to subtract, (2) Why is is that one can not make a call from NITEL Landlines to Celtel phones?
Please do soething about the two issues bothering me.
its amazing to know that we finally have a gsm operator that is ready to give us better quality services.i hope CELTEL is here to stay 4 life&hope they finish upgrading their GPRS fast so we can browse.THANKS CELTEL 4 being BETTER than the BESTTTT
celtel na BABAAAAA. i just hope they will try and increase their coverage&aim their promos at the average nigerian
it is a job welldone for celtel…to come into nigeria to upgrate it network to 3G tech.
you guys are the bomb did not know you started the 3g thing i’ll call customer care now let’s keep it going rise wit me to the very top celtel
I believe Celtel will come and do what Vmobile could not do.
I have first written to call your attention to the reduction of the 12 free SMS offered by Celtel to 6 and complained that Celtel should increase as the subscribers to also increase but not to decrease.
Please since you have already given us the 12 free monthly SMS do not reduce it to 6 now.
Also try and allow subscribers to be able to make calls from Nitel Land lines to Celtel phones because many customers would like to use the Nitel phones in their various offices, homes etc. to make calls.
Please act urgently.
A new day has come to Nigeria’s Telecommunication with CELTEL present here.
I want u to guys to work on ur mobile internet & mms stuff.
i know u can do it.
u will never regret coming here.
gud day this julius 4rm benin, i just want u to know that i am not happy about the way celtel nigeria is behaving. no call bonus
the suspension ofwap services on the network has been very disconforting since it has already become a part of me. looking forward to the restallation of this service and more.
Please can someone send me the current e-mail address of Celtel-Nigeria or help me forward this message to it.
