Nigeria Ranks Eleventh In Global Internet Usage 

Nigeria ranks eleventh in Internet penetration and seventh in mobile phone usage globally, according to the Nigerian Telecommunications Commission.

The Executive Vice Chairman of the NCC, Professor Umar Danbatta, shared this information at an event in Abuja.

The Network Readiness Index team assessed 131 economies across technology, governance, people, and impact to emphasise the importance of digital transformation for social and economic benefits.

He stated that “Nigeria is a telecommunications powerhouse, accounting for 82 percent of the continent’s telecom subscribers and 29 percent of the continent’s internet consumption.”

“Our country ranks eleventh in the world for Internet penetration and seventh in mobile phone usage.

“The NRI team’s global data shows that digital transformation is a global imperative for maximising the social and economic effects of the digital era.

 Despite these remarkable metrics, our Network Readiness Index (NRI) ranking for 2022 of 109th out of 131 countries is both humbling and challenging.”

Danbatta emphasised that prioritising network preparedness is both a strategic necessity and a mission for driving social and economic development in the country.
