ATCON set to evaluate 4yrs of Nigerian telecom industry - ITREALMS

The Association of Telecommunication Companies of Nigeria (ATCON) has expressed its readiness to evaluate the last four years of Nigerian telecommunications industry, reports ITREALMS.

This, ATCON said is part of its mandate to continuously advocate for the development of the Nigerian telecom industry through research and innovation and pro-active engagement of both the regulators and operators in the industry.

Executive Secretary, ATCON, Mr. Ajibola Olude, confirmed to 
ITREALMS that the National Executive Council of ATCON has concluded plans to embark on an evaluation exercise of the Nigerian telecom industry, which comes as a book to cover between 2015 and 2019.

“It is important that we emphasize the fact that the Nigerian telecommunications sector has gone through a lot of structural changes since it was liberalized many years ago,” he said.

ATCON, he noted as a forward looking and proactive Association in this space, prides itself with the protection of the investment already made and we are working very hard to further increase the level of investment that is attracted to the industry through research and development.

He also listed some of the reasons that inform the evaluation of the Nigerian telecoms industry to include the need to showcase policy improvements and innovations during the period under review and its attendant results; to understudy the sector viz-a-viz challenges limiting the growth and development of the sector in the period under review.

In addition, he said, its part of ATCON concerted effort towards proffering sustainable solutions to all identified challenges; to work towards attaining the newly set broadband target; and to encourage further local and foreign investment into the sector by demonstrating untapped opportunities in the sector.

“This very important book is meant to validate and give credit to how vital the telecom and ICT sector is to the Nigerian economy. The book is planned to be launched during the GSMA World Congress 2020, in Barcelona, Spain and afterwards in Nigeria,” he disclosed.
