These are some extracts taken from my business plan when I open an ITSP (Internet Telephony Service Provider) in the UK.  It is similiar for an ISP.   The requirements here in the UK is already done for ISP.  But I cannot compete with AOL, FreeServe, Bulldog etc.  besides internet is very very cheap in the UK with broadband and all that.


Product and Service Description

There are few requirements and equipments for this business. The main concern is the monthly fixed-cost. I am
estimating that the total monthly running cost would be between £700 - £1000 excluding the total capital. Below is
the breakdown anaylsis

The currency conversation is base on 1 US dollar = 0.569508514

Qty (1) DX VOIP gateway E1/PRI $2875.00 - £1637.3370

Qty (1) CardSaver billing software/ base and 30 port license $2970.00 - £1691.4403

Qty (1) 1GB Broadband with 512kb downstream, about 64kb download and 32kb upload speed plus a static IP
and open UDP/RTP ports £40

Qty (1) E1/PRI voice circuit £125.00 per line, 8 lines needed £100 for 8 lines connection and £43 per line a
month, which £344 for 8 liness monthly running cost

Qty (1) Internet ISP for voice termination i.e Arbinet.com

Qty (1) Card maker or card printer

Qty (1) A PC/Server runing window 2000/XP Pro with a Monitor

Qty (1) Promotion and marketing strategy

These are the initial requirements for this business to start. The ones highlighted with red have been acquired and
the rest are still waiting info on them or on their way to acquiring it.
Service explanation
DX voice gateway E1/PRI is the standard telephony box that multiplex voice call into a PRI voice circuit into
Internet via a VOIP terminator
CardSaver billing software is a software installed into the PC that help and manage the billing and calling
information and keeps inventory of calls for later use.

There are several business models and technical considerations for setting up ISP In Nigeria.
Based on my experience in this field, i will advise as follows:

a. The Location matters a great deal. I assume you intend to set-up a wireless service. If its dial-up, forget it becaus ethe company will die in less than 6 months!

b. For wireless service, you need to operate in either a licensed or unlicensed frequency. If you intend to operate on unlicensed frequencies, you can only operaate hotspots, legally. The regulatory framework does not allow the use of unlicensed frequency for wide are networks, not more than 200meters.

c. To operate any ISP in Nigeria, you will need to get an ISP License.Usually takes 3-4 months and costs roughly $4,000.

d. If you want to operate on the licensed frequency, price depends on the state you want to operate in and the bandwidth required(in MHz). You can get information on these from www.ncc.gov.ng

e. On pricing, the rave is about =N=45,000 for equipments/set-up and monthly fee of =N=15,000 for unlimited access.

f. You can get a good Network Administrator for a monthly fee of $500!!
I hope this answers your question.
Lets i forget, wimax is coming to Nigeria soon!!!
