Industry watcher believes the declines could be attributed to many factors including the NIN-SIM card linkage policy of the Federal Government of Nigeria and the rising inflation that has impacted household income.
Nigeria has set a target of 70%+ penetration at the expiration of the current National Broadband Plan (2020-2025); and to “deliver data download speeds across Nigeria, a minimum of 25Mbps in urban areas, and 10Mbps in rural areas, with effective coverage available to at least 90% of the population by 2025 at a price not more than N390 per 1GB of data (2% of median income or 1% of minimum wage)”.
