eWorld Forum Marks 10th Edition With Awards



Nigeria’s leading conference platform for broadband and digital development policy formulation and pathfinder to growth and services innovation, eWorld Forums will mark its 10th year edition on June 5, 2019, with awards to leading companies that have contributed to Nigeria’s digital and broadband services transformation.

The event which is expected to attract leading minds, ideas creators, solution givers and broadband and digital services innovators, will kick- start with a conference on The Nigeria’s Roadmap to Broadband Everywhere

Topics lined up for discussion include: The Smart cities and hotspots everywhere vision; how are the Infracos and the last mile quest faring; the 5G evolution: whither Nigeria; is 5G a necessary imperative for Nigeria’s broadband everywhere quest; what is the role of spaced-based communication in the broadband era and in achieving broadband everywhere vision: 4G, 5G; and how telcos are meeting and plans to meet the Nigeria’s customers’ expectation?

By Nigeria’s broadband vision, as espoused by the Nigerian Communication Commission, seamless broadband ubiquity and affordability should be within reach in the next few years, beginning from 2020.

The Infracos are expected to play a key role, besides the irreplaceable roles already being played by the mobile networks, in pushing broadband to our homes, public places, villages and cities.

The eWorld Forums started in 2009 where the idea of a Nigerian Broadband Policy was muted, first by Professor Raymond Akwule, President of Digital Bridge Institute, who chaired the event.

Since then, the eWorld Forum has played significant roles in charting the way for broadband and digital transformation in Nigeria.
