Nigeria In One Minute

Telcos eye 70% broadband penetration in five years



Service providers under the aegis of the Association of Telecommunications Companies of Nigeria (ATCON), are working to ensure the country’s broadband penetration hits 70 per cent by 2023.

To get this done, ATCON said the National Broadband Plan (NBP) 2013-2018, which was initiated by the pioneer Minister of Communications Technology, Dr. Omobola Johnson, would need to be reviewed to proffer new way forward for the industry.

ATCON, led by its President, Olusola Teniola, believed strongly in a new national discourse, like other industry stakeholders.

As such, he said plans are in top gear by the association to gather all industry stakeholders together from which fresh ideas would be berthed on the way forward for Nigeria’s connectivity.
