NigeriaCom: MTN, GSMA, NiG, others task FG on broadband subsidy
Almost every telecommunication operator and various associations at the NigeriaCom broadband conference and exhibition have urged government to heavily subsidise broadband in the country. They explained in different sections at the two- day event held last week in Lagos, that rather than place much emphasis on oil and other things, it would go a long way to facilitate internet penetration especially now that the world is moving over to 4G.
Tagged: “Boosting profitability in Africa’s largest Telecoms Market”, several operators including MTN reasons that several challenges ranging from theft in Base stations, insecurity in several regions and other challenges may militate against this year’s theme and advocated for a favourable playing field.
