Stakeholders seek access to quality internet

Issues around access to quality internet service and affordability in rural areas took the front burner at a two-day annual conference of the Nigerian Network Operators Group (ngNOG) which took place in Lagos.

Stakeholders at the conference themed ‘The Internet: For Everyone’ called for more collaborations in infrastructure sharing, collocation and alternative power supply, coupled with a friendlier business setting, so as to ensure high quality and affordable internet services while investors are sure of recouping returns on their investments.

The National Coordinator of the Nigerian Network Operators Group (ngNOG), Dr Adewale Adedokun who spoke at the conference stated that the internet has brought fundamental change throughout the society, driving it forward from an industrial age to the networked era.

The Chief Executive Officer of Internet Exchange Point of Nigeria (IXPN), Mr. Muhammad Rudman, listed challenges faced by service providers including multiple taxations caused by uncoordinated activities among regulatory agencies and excessive Right of Way charges amongst others.
