NCC Boss To Unveil New Broadband Direction At Forum



Executive vice chairman of the Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC), Professor Umar Danbatta, would provide leading insight and policy direction on the nation’s broadband at the 10th edition of the eWorld Forum and Awards.

The theme of this year’s forum is: “Nigeria’s Roadmap to Broadband Everywhere.” The 10th edition of eWorld Forum and Awards come up at 10 am on June 5, 2019 at the Oriental Hotel, Lekki, Victoria Island.

The Commission is also asking that regulatory framework that encourages competition and innovation, generates investment and benefits consumers should be encouraged to give confidence and certainty for investment, while penetration, connectivity and convergence should be promoted

Aaron Ukodie, publisher of eWorldNews and CEO of Ajomedia, organisers of the event said, discussions at the forum were sure to focus, prominently, around the now trending talks on broadband and the 5G evolution and the various arguments and viewpoints that attend to the new technology platform.

This follows the NCC’s identification with the forum, which enters its 10th year. The NCC’s endorsement of the forum comes on the heel of a similar one from the Association of Licensed Telecom Companies of Nigeria (ALTON).

Leading IT expert, Mr Chris Uwaje, and new president of Nigerian Internet Registration Association (NIRA), Engr. Muhammed Rudman, have also signaled their approval to participate in the panel discussions that follow the lead papers. They join NCC’s Danbatta and ALTON’s Gbenga Adebayo.

Perspectives on Smart cities and hotspots everywhere vision would be given, and more light would be shed on the state of the Infracos and the last mile vision.

The role of spaced-based communication in the broadband era and in achieving broadband everywhere vision, and how are telcos meeting and plans to meet the Nigeria’s customers’ expectation and data connectivity would also attract interest of panelists.
