As of December 2018, GLO had over 45 million subscribers, making it the second-largest network operator in Nigeria. It introduced lower tariffs and other value-added services. In 2011, GLO became the first telecommunication company to build an $800 million high-capacity fibre-optic cable known as Glo-1, a submarine cable from the United Kingdom to Nigeria. It is the first successful submarine cable from the United Kingdom to Nigeria. MTN built 3,400 kilometres Yello Bahn cable which gives it a wider coverage all over Nigeria. The telco paid $285 million for one of four GSM licenses in Nigeria in January 2001. It has spent more than $1.8 billion in strengthening its mobile telecommunications infrastructure in Nigeria. Since its launch in August 2001, MTN has steadily deployed its services across Nigeria. It now provides services in 223 cities and towns, more than 10,000 villages and communities and a growing number of highways across the country, spanning the 36 states of Nigeria and the Federal Capital Territory, Abuja. Airtel Africa is a leading provider of telecommunications and mobile money services, with a presence in 14 countries in Africa, primarily in East Africa and Central and West Africa. It has gone through several rebranding regimes from Econet to Vmobile, Zain, Celtel, then Airtel. As of March 2019, Airtel had over 99 million subscribers in the continent. It is listed on the London Stock Exchange and is a constituent of the FTSE 250 Index. Etisalat Nigeria launched in 2008 as one of the first major broadband services in the country. The company is known for its innovative products and services such as the Eco Sim and being the first network to offer special numbers to Nigerians as their mobile numbers via the 0809uchoose campaign. In 2013, Etisalat Nigeria signed a $1.2 billion medium-term facility with 13 Nigerian banks, which it used to refinance an existing $650 million loan and fund modernisation of its network. The banks that were involved in the loan deal include Zenith Bank, GT Bank, First Bank, UBA, Fidelity Bank, Access Bank, Ecobank, FCMB, Stanbic IBTC Bank and Union Bank. However, Etisalat struggled to repay the loan. While the banks pushed forward to acquire Etisalat, the NCC intervened and waded into the troubling water.The intervention by NCC led to Etisalat withdrawal from the market after its debt was not repaid or rescheduled. The local operator then renamed itself 9mobile in July 2017
