The Nigerian Communications Commission, NCC, has inaugurated an industry-wide committee to facilitate the deployment of broadband infrastructure.

While inaugurating the committee, Executive Vice Chairman of NCC, Umar Danbatta, noted that its emergence was informed by the need to inject a broad-based industry approach to address challenges impeding the actualization of broadband targets.

Danbatta added that the Committee is expected to drive the targets set by the NNBP, including deployment of 120,000 kilometer of fibre across the country; deepening of broadband penetration to 70 per cent by 2025; and connection of 60 per cent of Communication towers with fibre; as stipulated in its approved Terms of Reference.
