NCC, USPF, Google, MainOne Cable to Lead Broadband Summit

Heavyweights in the Nigerian telecommunications industry including the Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC).

Universal Service Provision Fund (USPF), Google Nigeria and MainOne Cable have endorsed the forthcoming Broadband Summit have signed up with the Association of Telecommunications Companies of Nigeria (Atcon) to field a high-level Investment Summit in Broadband internet Access in Nigeria.
The summit, organized by BusinessWorld Communications Limited in collaboration with Atcon, would identify business opportunities and the solutions that could be used to harness those opportunities in the next decade of information and communication technology development in Nigeria.
Mr. Titi Omo-Ettu, president of Atcon, said in Lagos last week that the ultimate objective of the summit is to identify opportunities and challenges for universal access to broadband internet in Nigeria, sufficiently engender investment, create access, build a market, remove access barriers, and encourage infrastructure construction to ensure Nigerians begin to enjoy the benefits of today’s technologies.
Omo-Ettu said the summit is not a typical talk-show but a practical discussion among industry regulator, investors, top players and senior executives of major telecommunication and finance institutions who need to do business in Nigeria and for whom information is waiting to meet such objective.
He explained that the summit includes a high level business discussion, exhibition of available products and services and an Investors’ Book presentation. The book is a document which is promoted by Atcon as the roadmap to bringing internet access to the last man in Nigeria. The Summit will be for two days.
According to Omo-Ettu, an investment expert, Mr. Fola Adeola, will deliver the lead paper whose focus is an expert’s forecast into Nigeria’s investment Climate in the next decade during which 50 million users are expected to be connected on broadband internet access. He explained that the industry’s orientation is shifting from emphasis on connected lines to the number of users of telecommunication services.
He explained further that participation at the summit is understandably by special invitation and restricted to only those who have contribution to make to the process of implementing a workable programme for improving telecommunication access in Nigeria.
The investors’ book, which will be presented at the summit, is a total presentation of industry data, players database and profile of those who will be front line players of the telecommunication and ICT industry in Nigeria’s second decade of ICT revolution. The book will be a reference document for investors from all over the world and it will be distributed to participants at the Summit.
He admonished those who wish to participate in the programme to approach the organizers of the Summit and to identify which roles they are capable of playing in the programme both at the Summit and also in the follow-up implementation processes.
