The Federal Government (FG) on Wednesday signed the Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) to begin the deployment of 5G services across Nigeria.
5G is a fifth generation of mobile technology, which is an improvement of today’s 4G technology with enhanced capabilities.
5G technology provides the platform for new and emerging technologies such as the Internet of Things (IoT), Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Big Data to improve the way we live and work.
The Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC) signed the MoU with Nigerian Communication Satellite (NIGCOMSAT) Limited to use the C-Band Spectrum for deployment of 5G services in the country.
Recall that the NCC undertook three months 5G trials in selected locations in Nigeria in November 2019. The trial, among others, was to study and observe health or security challenges the 5G network might present.
