The Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC) says citizens should expect smart cities, gigabytes in a second, self-driving cars, telemedicine, and others with the deployment of the fifth-generation (5G) technology in the country.

Umar Danbatta, executive vice chairman (EVC) of NCC, gave assurance while responding to questions during a webinar, titled: “Unlocking 5G Potential in Africa”, held recently on StreamYard, a live streaming studio.

According to a statement issued by NCC director of public affairs, Ikechukwu Adinde: “Danbatta indicated that Nigeria continued to receive visitations by countries who wished to benchmark their operations, just as Nigeria has also visited other countries to explore how 5G and associated technologies can be deployed effectively because 5G technologies are not just valuable, they are so significant due to their derivable social and economic benefits,” the statement reads.

“The EVC explicated how to unlock the potential of 5G, using a triangulated framework pivoted on Enhanced Mobile Broadband, Massive Machine Type Communication, and Ultra-Reliable Low Latency Communications.
