The adoption level of 3G technologies in the mobile, fixed, and media telecommunications market in Nigeria is currently only 15.9% of the overall mobile subscription base. The report forecasts that this will rise to 32.6% by the end of 2019, owing to rising focus on 3G services from leading telecom service providers such as MTN Nigeria, Airtel Nigeria, and Globacom.

The report anticipates that the customer base of LTE users will rise to 8.1 million in Nigeria in the year 2019, an estimated 4.5% of the overall estimated mobile subscriptions in Nigeria by that time. The surge in LTE subscriptions will largely be driven by Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC)’s plans to auction the spectrum in 2015, an area in which many telecom operators have expressed interest.
