MTN launches home broadband services

MTN Nigeria Communications PLC on Wednesday announced its launch of home broadband services to accelerate broadband penetration in alignment with the federal government’s plan to achieve over 70 per cent broadband penetration by 2025.

With over 200 million people, Nigeria currently boasts of approximately 44.3% internet connectivity, whereas other African countries, such as South Africa, Egypt, and Kenya, are at 68, 74, and 48% internet penetration, respectively.

Global technology statistics closely link internet connectivity to sustainable economic growth rates. On average, the internet accounts for almost four per cent of GDP across the large economies that make up 70% of global GDP. UNICEF also projects that nations with low broadband connectivity have the potential to realise up to 20% GDP growth by connecting schools to the internet.

MTN currently connects over 70 million Nigerians (over 7% 4G population and 89.8% coverage nationwide).

“At MTN, we believe that everyone deserves the benefits of a modern, connected life; hence our investment in industry-leading connectivity operations,” noted the Chief Operating Officer, MTN Nigeria, Hassan Jaber.

Also commenting, the general manager, Fixed Broadband, Onyinye Ikenna-Emeka, said: “Customers now have enhanced access to dedicated 24/7 support and online channels to place orders with options for home delivery.”
