Nigeria’s fully integrated telecommunications company, Globacom, has been listed as one of the agents of the revolution that transformed the Nigerian telecoms sector.

Globacom and its chairman, Dr. Mike Adenuga Jr. were given unique prominence in a list of 100 heroes of Nigeria’s telecom in a new publication by the Association of Telecommunications Companies of Nigeria (ATCON). The book was formally unveiled in Lagos.

The launch of the publication which was chaired by Dr. Ernest Ndukwe, former executive vice chairman, Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC), also has in attendance Chief Adebayo Shittu, minister of Communications Technology, who was the special guest of honour.

The publication noted that Globacom had pioneered a series of innovations that have helped to transform the nation’s telecommunications sector extensively, adding that one of the most impactful feats performed by Globacom was the introduction of per second billing (PSB) in Nigeria at inception.

PSB made it possible for Nigerians to get unprecedented value for money by paying only for the exact time spent on calls. The book also added that Globacom facilitated telephone penetration nationwide through hundred per cent reduction of GSM SIM price from N20,000 to N200 and crashing of call tariff from N50 to 5kobo.
