MTN Nigeria has acknowledged the remarkably critical role played by the Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC) in creating the regulatory platform for early trial of  Fifth Generation (5G) technology deployment in the country.

Mohammed Rufai, Chief  Technical Officer of MTN, gave the commendation at the second trial of 5G technology by MTN, conducted on 28/11/2019 at MTN Office, Etta Agbor Road, Calabar, Cross River State.

Recalling that NCC’s proactive regulations have made Nigeria the first country in West Africa to carry out 5G trial, Rufai said: “We thank all the stakeholders and our partners, especially the telecoms regulator, NCC, for making the birth of this  5G revolution journey possible with MTN as pioneer telecom company in this aspect.”

He explained that “MTN had worked with the NCC in all the stages leading to today’s trial in Calabar in order to let stakeholders see the huge potential, possibilities and the connectivity available to transform all aspects of our life through 5G technology.”
