Nigerian Broadband Investment Plan | Celebrating Progress Africa

Nigerian Broadband Investment Plan | Celebrating Progress Africa | Nigeria Innovation | Scoop.it

1 June 2013 | Broadband Investment Plan: Nigerian Government targets 80 percent nationwide Internet coverage by 2018

The Nigerian Government recently released its Broadband Investment Plan for the next five years (2013 - 2018). Speaking on the drafted Broadband Investment Plan, Nigeria’s Minister of Information & Communications Technology, Mrs. Omobola Johnson said:

"In meeting with industry leaders, the message is clear that we need to assist the Private Sector in driving pervasive access to Broadband. But then, the Private Sector must also deliver not just on basic reach and penetration, but also on Quality of Service. It is only in doing this that all Nigerians will truly feel the positive impact and benefit of Broadband.
