The buzzword around ICT circles in Nigeria these days is “Broadband” technically it refers to high-speed data transmissions over the internet using different technologies such as; 4G, LTE and WIM AX -the Broadband ecosystem comprises of the Networks, devices, applications and Content. This presupposes that a lot of Bandwidth will be required to transmit large amounts of Voice, data and video information at accelerated Megabits or terabytes per second. A common scenario for Nigerian businesses is when you want to download work related documents from a server located several miles across the Atlantic and you literally can go and make a cup of coffee while you wait for your document to download ;coupled with public electricity access bottlenecks that greatly hinder productivity. This equates to a low Broadband quality index and a digital divide gap.
