NCC Offers Two More 5G Network

Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC) says it is offering two slots in the 3.5 gigahertz (GHz) spectrum band for the deployment of the fifth generation (5G) network in the country.

The commission made this known on Saturday in a memorandum titled ‘Information Memorandum on 3.5ghz Spectrum Auction’.

According to the NCC, the offering includes remaining lots of two 100 megahertz (MHz) in the 3.5 GHz spectrum band “to support 5G deployment in Nigeria”.

The commission, therefore, set the reserve price at $273.60 million.

In February 2022, MTN Nigeria and MAFAB Communications Limited made their full payment of $273.6 million each for a 5G spectrum license after emerging winners of the 3. 5 GHz spectrum auction.

While MTN has rolled out the 5G mobile network, MAFAB suspended roll-out till December.
