- See faces at TERF
The regulator and players in the nation’s telecommunications sector, Friday, converged on Lagos Island, to brainstorm on measures that would fast-track the rapid expansion of telecommunications services.
As expected, discussion at the Forum centred on mitigating factors responsible for operators’ slow expansion of infrastructure to deliver broadband services across the country
President of the Association Of Telecommunications Companies Of Nigeria (ATCON), the organisers of the event, Mr. Olusola Teniola, said that the forum is one of ATCON’s growth initiatives for the telecom industry in Nigeria and it is designed for the purpose of creating a veritable platform for key industry players to interact with the industry regulator, with the aim of building a continual good working relationship between industry players and the regulator.
It is also aimed at creating opportunity for the regulator to update the industry on the regulatory direction and plans for the industry in the coming years. “This hopefully, would enable industry stakeholders to understand how best to cooperate with the regulatory agency in ensuring the effectiveness and success of policies and regulations in the industry.
“Furthermore, the forum is designed as an opportunity for the regulator to receive feedback from the industry with a view to understanding the challenges and prospects industry players have to grapple with and explore to ensure sustained growth of the industry.
Executive Vice Chairman, Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC), Professor Umar Danbatta, presented the keynote address and the panel discussion sessions, engendered sufficient debate and proffer solutions to the numerous challenges faced by the industry.
