Nigerian telecommunications market has recently seized the first place among African telcom markets, surpassing even South Africa. The background for its steady progress and development is full market liberalization, accompanied by sensible regulations on behalf of independent regulatory body, NCC. Moreover, the recently introduced unified licensing has increased market potential, making it easier for companies to expand the range of their services. A country, where the government encourages market development and freedom, is open to foreign companies and investments. As opposite to most countries, where the market has been liberalized and the state-owned incumbent has been privatized, but possesses a considerable share, in Nigeria telecom incumbent Nitel faces its most difficult period, having a minimal share in the fixed-line sector and being unpopular in mobile industry as well. Nowadays it needs to think over its strategy and seeks foreign investments to flourish again. Meantime, landline telephony sector is dominated by alternative providers, and boasts high competition, but lower quality of technical support and maintenance. Due to reasonable regulations the companies not only support the healthy atmosphere, but also look forward to introducing new services and improving the quality of existing ones. Still, with significant changes coming, mobile penetration is only 45%. 3G technologies have recently appeared in the market. Currently the services are based both on GSM and CDMA standards, with CDMA becoming more and more popular among subscribers.
Mobile market is nowadays the most competitive and the most advanced sector in Nigerian telecommunications infrastructure. It is led by MTN Nigeria, which accounts for nearly 40% of total market share. Then comes Celtel or Zain Nigeria, which now occupies the second position, but is reported to gradually increase its share in the industry. The two remaining operators are M-Tel and Globacom. Nigeria is also gradually developing its broadband market, with unified licensing regime opening the way for convergence. There are several new players in the market, and the already acting ones are Cyberspace, Hyperia, Linkserve, PINET Informatics and others. One of the highly perspective sectors in mobile and broadband markets is VoIP technology, encouraged by most popular mobile operators and ISPs.
