Nigeria’s 5G subscriptions reached 2.3 million in December 2023 – NCC

Data released by the Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC) has revealed that 5G subscriptions in the country increased to 2.3 million in December 2023.

This, however, represents 1.04% of the country’s total active subscriptions for telephone services, which stood at 124.7 million at the end of the year.

However, while the operators continue to invest in expanding the service, several factors, including the high cost of 5G devices, have slowed down subscriptions for the service, which offers the best quality of experience compared with 2G, 3G, and 4G.

According to NCC, most telephone connections in Nigeria were still on 2G as of December 2023. The industry data shows that 2G accounted for 57.84% of all connections in Nigeria at the end of the year.
