The Nigerian Communications Commission(NCC) has reaffirmed its commitment to accelerate licensing of new spectrum to usher in new technologies.
Babagana Digima, Head, Digital Economy Department of NCC, said that the technologies, inclusive of 5G, broadband satellite services, high altitude platform services, and others would address the dearth of infrastructure and services in the region.
Digima was representing NCC CEO Umar Danbatta at a virtual webinar organised by the Nigerian-British Chamber of Commerce (NBCC) titled ‘Nigeria’s Telecommunication Industry-Post Covid’.
“We will create additional areas of investments with the opening of the new spectrum, especially for broadband deployment in both urban and rural areas, and facilitate fibre deployment through initiatives such as the Infocomm,” Digima said.
Digima added that the telecommunications industry is committed to the delivery of better service and internet infrastructure that would provide quality service and experience as well as address customers’ complaints.
