Mobile Investments Create Opportunities for Operators in Nigeria 


BOSTON, July 22, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Nigeria remains the largest mobile market in Africa and the Middle East, and with mobile penetration at only 66.3% in 2012, opportunities exist for operators to increase their subscriber base by investing in improving and expanding their networks, according to a new report from Pyramid Research (www.pyr.com).


Nigeria: As Operators Invest in Networks, New Telecom Regulations Boost Competition offers a precise profile of the country's telecommunications, media and technology sectors based on proprietary data from Pyramid's research in the market. It provides a detailed competitive analysis of both the fixed and mobile sectors, tracks the market shares of technologies and services and monitors the introduction and spread of new technologies.

"With four GSM operators and many smaller CDMA operators, Nigeria is one of the most competitive markets in the region," says Ousmane Yatera, Analyst at Pyramid Research.  The growth of the market is forcing operators to invest in capacity, upgrades and expansion of their networks in rural areas, all of which increase the costs of operation. This, together with reducing ARPS, is leading operators to look to streamline their processes. One way of doing this is via infrastructure sharing, a concept that is being supported by many operators in the country, he notes.
