Association Calls For More Sensitisation On 5G Deployment

National President, Association of Telephone, Cable TV and Internet Subscribers of Nigeria (ATCIS), Sina Bilesanmi on Tuesday called on the government and the Nigeria Communications Commission (NCC) to sensitise subscribers on the 5G spectrum.

Bilesanmi said before the deployment of the spectrum, the public should be educated of its safety, usage and affordability.

“We are the leading mass advocacy body that promotes subscribers membership across the 36 states within the six geo-political zones in the country.

“We have written several letters to the Ministry of Telecommunications and Digital Economy and NCC to educate the subscribers and stakeholders on the 5G initiative.

“They should step down on the deployment of 5G and inform the public on the safety and precautions of the technology.

The 5G technology is meant to deliver a higher data speed, ultra-low latency with more reliability massive network capacity.

The just concluded AfricanNEXT 2022, Head of the Fixed Network Coverage Services, Babagana Digima, said the 5G technology would be faster and handle more connected devices than the existing 4GLTE network, including smart TV and radio.

The president, however, welcomed the new innovation and proactiveness in the digital world.

“5G initiative is not bad at all, I believe the positive impact on subscribers will be more than the negative hence the need for sensitisation for the public, as many people are scared of the 5G already,” he said.
