0 40

In order to deploy a fifth-generation network, Airtel Networks Limited has paid the Nigerian Communications Commission $316. 7 million for 100 MHz of spectrum in the 3500 MHz band and 2×5 MHz of 2600 MHz to expand its fourth-generation coverage in the nation.

The company claims that the extra spectrum will help it with its network expansion investments for both mobile data and fixed wireless home broadband capability, including the rollout of 5G. With Airtel’s purchase of a 5G license, Nigeria now has three 5G licensees.

Mafab stated that as of August 2022, it was expected to miss the NCC’s August 24, 2022 deadline for the start of the 5G rollout.

When asked if the company had launched, a source said that it had indeed done so on some sites and had an active 5G network.
