The Chief Executive Officer and President of MTN Group, Ralph Mupita stated on Tuesday in Lagos that 5G is crucial for the development and expansion of Africa's economy.
“It is important that we emphasise how using 5G for business-to-business applications and margination would be the catalyst for Africa’s growth.
“I think we will find in five years, maybe even sooner, that on the African continent, 5G is what would enable economies to accelerate their industrial development across the educational, agriculture, mining, or transportation industries.
“There has been quite a bit of investment into national 5G coverage where citizens and businesses of Nigeria are leading.
“If we get to 50 per cent population coverage by 2025, Nigeria will lead many nation-states in the developed markets through the extent of national coverage,” Mupita said.
In order for Nigeria to fulfil its potential and capabilities, he continued, 5G technology would be an essential component of the nation's infrastructure.
According to Mupita, the MTN Group is still committed to giving subscribers access to the deployment of cutting-edge technology that enables them to maintain connections in a rapidly changing global environment.
“The desire to provide more than 280 million customers access to a modern connected life drives the leading technology organisation to consistently provide diverse digital solutions that cut across telecommunications, financial technology and enterprise,” he said.
