Starcomms Plc, Nigeria’s 4th largest telecommunications operator and leading “triple-play” (mobile, fixed wireless voice, wireless broadband) provider, is quoted on the Nigerian Stock Exchange having being listed on July 14, 2008.
 It is the first telecommunications operator in Nigeria to be listed on the domestic Exchange. Starcomms commenced operations in 1990 with a customer base of less than 2,000, at the end of June 2008, the network had crossed over 1.5 million subscribers; making it the 4th largest telecommunications operator and largest CDMA 3G Mobile network in the country. It is also the first CDMA 3G network to cross the one million subscriber base in Nigeria.

Between 2002 and 2005, Starcomms focused on providing fixed wireless services (due to PTO license restrictions), becoming the leading fixed line provider in the country. Starcomms is the leading provider of 3G and 3.5G broadband services in Nigeria using CDMA 2000 Ev-Do and was the first company in Africa to launch Ev-Do high-speed broadband services in June 2006.

 The network launched its nationwide mobile services after being awarded a 10-year (renewable) technology-neutral national unified license in May 2006, which allows it to offer the full range of telecommunication services on a national basis, as well as international gateway services.
