Nigeria Telecommunications Investment Opportunities 2005-2006

"The few investors who entered the Nigerian market in 2001 and 2002 when it was still considered very risky have experienced triple-digit growth rates every year and amassed huge profits. In the improved economic and operating environment, the market is now also attracting strong interest from leading global telecoms players and international investors, but new technologies, a decline in infrastructure costs and continuing deregulation will maintain opportunities for smaller players as well. This report provides potential investors with an overview and analysis of the Nigerian telecommunications market and delivers insights into current and future investment opportunities that exist in the various market segments while at the same time pointing out the problems and risks involved.
