Research and Markets: Nigeria - Fixed-Line Market and Infrastructure - Overview and Statistics - 2012

Dublin - Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/l264x8/nigeria_fixedli) has announced the addition of the "Nigeria - Fixed-Line Market and Infrastructure - Overview and Statistics" report to their offering.

Nigeria is the most competitive fixed-line market in Africa, featuring a second national operator (SNO, Globacom) and over 80 other companies licensed to provide fixed-telephony services. The alternative carriers combined now provide over 90% of all fixed connections while the ailing incumbent, Nitel, is struggling to attract a new strategic investor and looking for new business models to turn the company around.

The majority of fixed lines has been implemented using wireless technologies, which gives the network operators the opportunity to also enter the lucrative mobile market under a unified licensing regime and has helped them to secure hundreds of millions of US$ in investments from local and foreign investors.

Several microwave and fibre-based national backbone infrastructures are being rolled out by various companies. Nitel's monopoly on international fibre bandwidth via the SAT-3/WASC submarine cable system ended in 2009 when Globacom's Glo-1 cable landed in the country, followed by the Main-One cable in 2010. Additional submarine cables are scheduled to go online in 2012, which will deliver a further boost to the country's underdeveloped Internet and broadband sector.
