Technology is a big aspect of everyone’s life, especially in Nigeria. This computer-savvy African country thrives on digital resources and is a tech hotspot in Africa. Many Nigerians are excitedly anticipating the arrival of 5G.
But 5G? In short, it’s the next generation of mobile broadband. It promises to be a huge improvement over existing 4G networks for both personal and corporate use. Of course, many Nigerians are aware of this and eagerly await the network’s complete launch.
What’s new with 5G in Nigeria?
People around the nation have been eagerly expecting its launch for some time. In 2019, certain locations tested 5G for three months to see how it works and what difficulties it may bring.
So yet, no formal launch has been approved. The Nigerian Communications Commission released a tentative study on 5G implementation in November 2020. Before a decision is made on this draft report, it seems that it will be officially consulted. It is unknown how long this would take or when 5G will be available in Nigeria.
This consultation time would also enable Nigerian authorities to examine worldwide 5G standards before implementing them. The study outlines the NCC’s 5G implementation plan and potential advantages.
Better mobile casino and betting
A big advantage of 5G will be how Nigerians use their leisure time. Mobile betting and casino gaming could benefit from the increase in popularity in Nigeria, where many individuals routinely play games or make bets through mobile devices.
Nigeria has one of the largest online casino industries in Africa, with a total gaming yield of over £50 million in 2019. The country’s 5G networks should provide quicker and more dependable access to Nigerian mobile casinos. This will benefit both gamblers and the business as a whole. (…)
