According to the latest statistics, there are over 2.4 million connected main lines in Nigeria While the number of connected mobile cellular lines stands at 164 million. Out of these, 117 million are active. The installed capacity of main lines is 11 million and 204 million for mobile lines. When you consider this factor, Nigeria’s mobile cellular industry has grown tremendously by surpassing other countries in Africa. The teledensity is currently such that out of every 100 Nigerians, 86 have a mobile line.
Although Nigeria’s mobile telephone penetration rates are impressive, a lot of modernisation and expansion is necessary. This can be attributed to factors such as poor call quality experienced mostly on the fixed line telephone network. Also, there are only two fixed line operators in Nigeria which means that there is a lot of room for expansion and competition. New entries in the industry could well improve the quality and cost of telecommunication services. Such entries could also improve the fixed line penetration rate which is growing at a very slow pace i.e. approximately 1% annually.
Nigeria’s telecoms industry is served by satellite earth stations: 3 Intelsat stations; 2 in the Atlantic Ocean and one in the Indian Ocean.
