Virtual Business Briefing – Nigeria Satellite Technologies
Pakistan LNG Supply and Natural Gas Infrastructure REVERSE TRADE MISSION AND BUSINESS BRIEFING MARCH 1 – 13, 2020 ▪︎ HOUSTON, TEXAS & WASHINGTON, D.C.

Background Information

With a population of approximately 200 million and a 31% broadband internet penetration rate, Nigeria represents a priority market for U.S. telecommunications companies to leverage satellite technology that will harness connectivity and further economic growth. While there is significant growth in fixed wireless connections, the deployment of satellites is critical to meet increasing demands for connectivity and to bridge existing gaps.

Since Africa’s demand for communications satellite connectivity is expected to double over the next five years, Nigeria is also turning to satellites to improve connectivity and fulfill the Government of Nigeria’s efforts to provide greater internet penetration to underserved populations.
