Nigeria, with an estimated population of 174,5 million, is Africa’s largest mobile market with more than 119 million subscribers.

Subscriber growth has steadily accelerated in recent years, driven by lower prices and a growing demand for mobile broadband services.

The rapid growth has nonetheless led to problems with network congestion and quality of service, prompting NCC to impose fines and sanctions.
