The Nigerian Information and Communications Technology (ICT) sector has witnessed tremendous growth. To sustain this growth, there must be, massive broadband penetration as little or nothing can be done without a fast and reliable internet.
According to the Nigerian Broadband Plan, Broadband within the Nigerian context means a fast internet experience that can enable the user to access the most demanding content in real time at a minimum speed of 1.5 Mbit/s and one of the companies that have been in the fore front of helping Nigeria to achieve this is Spectranet.
Spectranet is one of the most popular and fastest 4G LTE broadband internet service companies in Nigeria. It was the first Internet Service Provider to launch the 4G LTE internet data service in the country.
They currently serve some of the most important cities in such as Lagos, Abuja, Ibadan and Port Harcourt and still counting.
To help Nigeria achieve its 30% broadband penetration by the end of 2018, spectranet has refocused its strategy to pay more attention to affordable, quality and innovative broadband delivery.
As reported in nigeriacommunicationsweek.com.ng, the CEO of Spectranet, Mr. Ajayi Awasthi, says that speed of connectivity has become a priority to the company to ensure that Nigerians get value for their money. He stressed that “What is very important is 24/7, 365 days cheap internet availability. That is where Spectranet is going to play very important role to ensure broadband availability”.
Also, affordability is another area where the company is paying massive attention. The company promises to not just ensure that Nigerians are connected to the internet for real time information, but that they also do so at a very affordable rate.
With a super twin strategy of speedy internet at an affordable rate, it would then become an awesome experience to be connected to the world not minding income level or societal class.
These in no small way will ensure that the 30% broadband penetration benchmark set by the Nigerian Communication commission is achieved and possible surpassed. And at such, entrepreneurs will save more on data cost while enjoying the 21st century benefit that the internet brings.
