By Emmanuel Elebeke

In fulfillment of its commitment to put Nigeria on the frontline as a technology driven economy, the Executive Vice Chairman  of Nigerian  Communications Commission, Prof Umar Danbatta says all is now set for  roll out of 5G services across the country.

He said the Commission had crossed all  the Ts and dot the Is and waiting for green light from the Federal government  to roll out the services soon.

The EVC made the revelation  during the public inquiry on draft frequency spectrum (fees and pricing, and annual operating levy regulations held on Thursday, in Abuja.

The move he said followed series of pre-trial roll exercise earlier carried out by MTN and Airtel networks, which justified the Commission’s decision to commence the roll out plan across the nation.

He further explained that the Commission is now set for the roll out and had already submitted the proposal to the federal government for approval since the prerogative lies solely with the Federal government to do so.

Since the three frequency bands required for 5G coverage had been assigned for the deployment, Danbatta said that Nigeria cannot afford to be left behind by some other countries that have rolled out the services in line with the dynamics in the sector and demand for emerging technologies across the globe.
