Nigeria's Starcomms To Power Telecentres

Nigeria's CDMA operator Starcomms has launched an offer to provide the country's telecentres with a free solar charger enabling them to recharge their mobile phones. Nigeria operates a large number of public call offices, dubbed telecentres, which enable customers who cannot afford to buy a handset to make mobile phone calls.
Starcomms' initiative is the first of its kind in the country according to Tushar Maheshwari, COO of the company: 'This is an initiative to ensure that we increase the accessibility of mobile phone to the public who cannot afford to buy handsets and ensure that a phone at the telecentres is always on irrespective of power cuts. We have received phenomenal response and the chargers can be used to charge all operators' phones.'
