LBS in Partnership with Research ICT Africa (RIA) to conduct Research Study on Broadband Access in Nigeria

Lagos Business School (LBS) in partnership with Research ICT Africa (RIA), South Africa is conducting a research study aimed at enhancing broadband access in Nigeria.

Increased broadband penetration is instrumental to the economic development of Nigeria. Despite the increase in broadband penetration, there is little empirical research on the performance of fixed or mobile broadband in the country. The objective of this research study is to address the knowledge gap in broadband access in Nigeria. Measuring broadband performance will help ensure consumer needs and expectations are met by the providers and that service levels remain reliable.

The study will be conducted using the MySpeedTest App to assess broadband speed, latency, and data usage.

Researchers, to understand the reasons for the poor quality of broadband service, and to make technical and policy recommendations on how to improve broadband speed and latency will use aggregated tests results.

The Research ICT Africa Network conducts research on ICT policy and regulation that facilitates evidence-based and informed policy making for improved access, use and application of ICT for social development and economic growth.
