Nigerian connectivity enhanced from space


The successful launch of Nigeria's satellite NigComSat-1R is expected to enhance the nation's communications system

It is expected, also, to increase the nation's Internet bandwidth while substantially reducing the over $1bn cost incurred from the usage of foreign-owned satellite for e-commerce activities of public and private sector users - all of which are a fulfillment of the goals contained in the nation's 25-year National Space Development Roadmap.
"There cannot be Transformation without technology and the technological benefits from this satellite will flow to all Nigerians whether rural or urban dweller and would also provide the infrastructure needed to provide cashless e-commerce transactions for all Nigerians thus opening up Nigerian businesses and enterprises to markets that are not limited by space or time," said Nigerian President Goodluck Jonathan.
