According to officials of the two companies, with Fiber-in-the-home, a house can become a smart home through the ‘Internet of Things (IoT)’, where devices in the home are connected to the internet and are able to send and receive data.
Brains & Hammers have, over the years, revolutionised the real estate industry in Nigeria, by delivering unique, beautiful, yet highly functional buildings that are truly value for money – superior design, exquisite craftsmanship and good price.
LEGEND on its part, is a multi-media brand that offers Premium cable TV entertainment, unlimited internet access, local and international voice calls, automated home management & security services, all on the same connection; an innovation in multimedia services, powered by fiber-optic technology infrastructure.
“Imagine being able to remotely control your lights and AC equipment before you come home? To get remote access to cameras in your home to see what the kids are up to? To play music wirelessly across different rooms with access to international radio and music stations? What about streaming and downloading as much content as you want on an ultra-fast internet connection with no buffering? All these and more are made possible by fiber-optic connectivity, which delivers truly unlimited internet, premium video content, call services and more on a single connection.
“This deployment will be the largest Fiber-to-the-home roll-out in Sub-Saharan Africa and heralds a new era of better living for Nigerian home-owners,” an official of LEGEND said.
Speaking of this partnership, the executive director of Brains and Hammers, said: “We construct houses with the utmost attention to detail, creating buildings and communities that become reference points in the industry. Professionally, our aim is to be a benchmark for the entire residential construction industry. We aim to be the real estate developer that other developers emulate, both in terms of our actual end products, and of our management/business approach.”
LEGEND is a product brand of Suburban Fiber Company, a company that maintains strong foundations in the Nigerian multi-media space, with over a decade of pioneering and successful operations. The CMO of Suburban Fiber Company, Gabriel Gab-Umoden, speaking on the partnership, says: “The Legend brand offerings are second to none in Nigeria, with a reliable network, superior entertainment and ancillary services all offered at price points that are accessible to a broad spectrum of the market. We have successfully rolled out our services to thousands of homes and satisfied customers, and we are eager to deliver true broadband to more Nigerian homes at such a large scale.”
The project, expected to start in August 2016, will be swiftly rolled out in all Brains & Hammers estates across the Abuja metropolis. With this landmark achievement, fiber-optic connectivity will become part of the blueprint for estate developments in the country going forward, as Nigeria looks to leapfrog other developing nations in this regard.
