Today, we’re pleased to release our second country case study. This time around, A4AI has turned our focus onto Nigeria – the first African country to join the Alliance in October 2013.
As the case study notes,”what happens in Nigeria matters – not just around the continent but also around the globe.” The country boasts Africa’s largest economy and is the continent’s most populous. Today, access prices are high and broadband penetration stands at just 6%. Yet, signs of progress are evident and the Government has recently unveiled an ambitious vision and broadband plan. Clearly though, hard work lies ahead to connect ordinary Nigerians across the length and breadth of the nation and unlock the socio-economic benefits that affordable access can bring.
The case study takes a closer look at the status quo and the challenges ahead. You can download it by clicking here. We hope you find it an engaging read and valuable to your work. And if you have any comments or observations, we’d love to hear them!
