MAFAB’s 5G Services Are Fully Operational In Nigeria- NCC
Following the misleading comments on social media which falsely claimed that MAFAB Communications is yet to roll out its 5G licence, the Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC) has announced that the communication company launched its service in Abuja on January 24, 2023, and in Lagos on January 26, 2023.
According to the commission, MAFAB Communications is one of the two successful companies that won a 5G Licence during the globally-acclaimed transparent 5G Auction conducted by the Commission on December 13, 2021.
Upon fulfilling the condition of payment for the fee of $273.6 million in February 2022, the company formally received the licence on February 22, 2022.
Consequent upon issuing the 5G licence, and in line with the rollout conditions, MAFAB publicly launched its services in Abuja and Lagos on January 26, 2023.
At launch, the services targeted six cities – Lagos, Abuja, Port Harcourt, Enugu, Kano, and Kaduna.
The Commission has continued to monitor the progress of the rollout by MAFAB. It has been regularly briefed about the status of infrastructure deployment for service offerings as conditioned in its operating licence.
However, the public and all stakeholders should ignore the false and misleading information concerning the 5G rollout by MAFAB.
