Nigeria Telecommunications Report Q3 2015

Attention: There is an updated edition available for this report.

BMI View: BMI forecasts strong growth for Nigeria driven by multitude of factors such as operator'spromotional activities, multiple SIM ownership and expanding into underserved rural areas. However,operators are cautioning that fuel shortages and heightened risk of insurgency will be a significant riskfactor to the mobile growth. Further to this, auctions for additional spectrum have been postponed twicealready and as of June 2015 it appears as if they will be postponed once more. This could dampen our 4Goutlook.
