The recent rave in the tech world is that of 5G. Guess what? Nigeria says it will be ready to take on the technology by 2020.
According to The Vanguard, The Executive Vice Chairman of the Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC), Prof. Unarmed Danbatta said, “while the country works to perfect 3G and 4G, we shouldn’t be left behind, as other countries are already in tune with 5G. We must also make efforts to get ourselves ready for the next generation network. ”
According to him, to promote innovation and growth in this industry, as a requirement, “therefore, we must develop strategic policies, provide essential infrastructure, enhance competitive market, robust regulatory frameworks, focused compliance monitoring and enforcement mechanism, reform our spectrum access mechanisms, among others.”
It is quite a lofty goal to aim for, seeing as there are still some parts in Nigeria where 4G is not functional.
