14 September 2011
Most Nigerians will soon be able to have mobile phone access as the country's telecommunication infrastructure is set to improve.
This is according to Nokia Siemens Network (NSN) who stated that growth in the nation's telecoms sector will occur so that 82 per cent of the public will have mobile communication by 2015, Business Day reported.
Head of the Africa region for NSN Dimitri Diliani told the news provider that the group intends for every Nigerian to eventually have access to telecommunication networks, including internet services.
The group opened a new office in Nigeria's capital, Lagos, recently - a move that Mr Dimitri said will see the presence serve "to strengthen our operations in the continent and deliver superior services to our customers".
Head of sales for the MTN Group in Africa Raphael Udeogu added that improvements in broadband services and ICT utilisation in Nigeria are necessary.
Last month, Ousmane Dore, representative of the Africa Development Bank for Nigeria, revealed that findings will be published on the extent of the country's infrastructure problems, according to 234next.com.
