Broadband Penetration Hits 23%, Says Minister by Mrakeli: 4:40am On Nov 07
The Minister of Communication, Adebayo Shittu has disclosed that the country has achieved a broadband penetration of 23 percent from a penetration of 14 percent in 2014.



He made the disclosure at the 2018 eNigeria conference organised by the National Information Technology Development Agency (NITDA) at the International Conference Centre, Abuja.

Recall that in line with the declaration of the International Telecoms Union (ITU) to make broadband accessible to all citizens by 2020, the Federal Government in 2013 had set a target to achieve a 30 per cent broadband penetration by December 2018.


The minister noted that the 23 per cent broadband penetration was possible because the government realised the role broadband plays in the development of the Information Communication Technology (ICT) sector.

“This informed our decision to develop a national broadband plan with the aim of increasing the penetration to 30 per cent, up from 14 per cent in 2014. I am happy to inform you that we have been able to achieve a penetration of 30 per cent and we are not resting on our oars until we achieve our target.”

The minister also stated that the foreign investment in the ICT sector has increased from $3.2billion in 2015 to 4$ billion in 2018. This, he said, was a result of the friendly policies initiated by the current administration that promote startups and existing business.

He observed that emerging technologies are creating new industries with opportunities, adding that Nigeria can leverage on these technologies to attract Foreign Direct Investment to the sector.

This report is crap angry broadband to all citizens within 7 years and in 5 you’ve done only 30%. What are the limiting factors if they’re? I won’t be surprised if 25% was achieved in the first 2 years.

Nigeria’s broadband strategy

In 2013, stake holders in Nigeria’s telco space, drafted the National Broadband plan which aimed to achieve 30 per cent broadband
penetration in 2018. With six months left to go, and broadband penetration according to the NCC at 22 per cent in March, how likely
is it that they will meet their target

Broadband penetration is measured by the number of broadband subscribers per 100 inhabitants

If you replace the word broadband with internet it will make sense.
Broadband internet means a very fast internet connection. One above 3G service.
The article says whoever is in charge had set a goal of 100% of Nigerians accessing the internet using broadband service in the year 2020. This is a lofty goal which Americans have not achieved talk less of we Africans.
As at now their 30% of citizens-goal was not achieved, seeing only 23% of total Nigerians are on the service presently.
I'm here wondering if they didn't put into account the many people using smartphones to access the internet.
That's all. I'm sure the article makes sense now.

LOL at how a technology based thread has refused to pass the first page. When Nairalanders complain of non intellectual topics hitting the front page they should come here to see why.
This news involves only a little knowledge one can easily read up on and yet see how they've abandoned it.
If it's news about Davido, Tonto Dikeh and Tiwa Savage now...
