“The use of mobile broadband rather than fixed by large corporates dealing on high density digital activities will always continue to be hobbled. This is based on the fact that mobile broadband are not naturally designed to carry heavy traffic over time but for averagely moderate private traffic. Banks are noted globally for high use of broadband and the best bet for banks should be fixed broadband if we want to tell ourselves the gospel truth.”
These were the submissions of Engr. Emeka Oginnaka, Chief Electrical Electronics Office at Ogis Digital, Lagos.
He decried that “Nigerians are being misled into believing that jumping mobile broadband penetration is good for the economy,” saying “Mobile broadband is not ideal for a nation that want to deepen industrial revolution because it does not stand the test of heavy traffic and peak periods.”
According to him, “The best legacy this outgoing administration would have given to Nigeria would have been the fixed broadband rather than making noise every time with claims that the nation’s broadband is rising on a yearly basis.”
“Let me tell Nigerians, banks will continue to have hiccups on internet networks as far as they continue to rely on mobile internet. The best thing is to find ways of discussing with state governments so as to soft-paddle on high demand of Right of Way (RoW) for telecoms Infrastructure Companies (InfraCos) to deliver the last mile fixed broadband.
Dr Okwosa decried that “It is very unfortunate that upon the noise the Minister of Communications and Digital Economy, Dr. Isah Pantami and the NCC are making in claims of achievements, they are yet to facilitate the activities of InfraCos so as to deliver fixed broadband.”
