The NCC boss explained that the new committee will focus on ensuring deployment of the necessary infrastructure needed to raise broadband penetration for attainment of the 30 per cent target by end of 2018.

He said: “The license has gone out to the Infraco companies, we have a total of six of them in all zones of the country.

“Each zone has infrastructure company licensed by NCC to deploy infrastructure in that zone and no licensee is allowed to deploy infrastructure in any other zone because there will be issues.
