FG to widen telecoms services by 2017
By Sampson Unamka
The Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC) has said provision has been made in its 2017 budget to widen telecommunications services to 40 million additional people across the country.
Executive Vice Chairman of the commission, Umar Danbatta, represented by the Director of Public Affairs, NCC, Tony Ojobo, made this known recently during a sensitisation workshop organised by the commission for law enforcement agencies on telecommunications issues in Lagos recently.
Danbatta said that the commission had conducted a survey, which identified about 200 communities nationwide with access gap.
He said that through the Universal Service Provision Fund (ISPF) being managed by a department under NCC, 40 million people in these areas would be covered in 2017.
He said the industry’s contribution to the national GrossDomestic Product was about 10 per cent and NCC was committed to seeing greater development in the sector.
“In this respect, two infrastructure companies have been licensed, while the remaining five companies will be licensed shortly to commence the deployment of more broadband fibre networks beyond the major cities in the country.
“Our model, anchored on robust development of infrastructure, transmission and retail segment, is expected to speed up the cascading of networks of fibre required by individuals and businesses to improve life and catalyse economic growth,” he said.
According to Danbatta, these tasks underscore the need for collaborations with security agencies to curtail criminal assault against telecommunications infrastructure.
He said the industry had witnessed a rise in the theft of telecommunications infrastructure and vandalism of facilities and equipment, adding that NCC was determined to move fast in its mandate of harnessing the potential of the ICT sector to boost national economy.
Danbatta added that the industry had witnessed usage of pre-registered Subscribers Identification Module (SIM) cards, all of which were infractions of the Nigerian Communications Act, 2003, and other extant regulations governing the industry.
He noted that while the commission has rolled out various campaigns to raise awareness and made some arrest with the support of the police, there was need for effective strategies to ensure that anyone arrested was prosecuted.
How to charge your phone
Don’t charge battery from zero to 100%
The rule with Li-ion batteries is to keep them 50% or more most of the time. When it drops below 50% top it up a little if you can. A little a few times a day seems to be the optimum to aim for.
Batteries are one of tech’s most boring subjects … until your phone, tablet or laptop dies, that is. While most of us live in fear of a fading phone battery when we’re out and about, we don’t worry too much about that battery’s eventual lifespan (probably between three and five years), but there are ways to keep your battery in tip-top shape for a long and fruitful life. Just how should you charge your iPhone or Android phone? Also see: How to charge your phone or tablet’s battery faster.
Batteries do not enjoy eternal life. Most smartphone manufacturers say their devices rate their batteries at 300-500 cycles. Apple claims that its laptop batteries reach 80 percent of their original capacity after 1,000 charges. After this point batteries aren’t able to hold as much electricity and will power your device for increasingly shorter periods of time. See: Best smartphones

So here’s some tips to extend your battery’s lifespan, be that in an iPhone, Android phone, Windows phone, tablet, or laptop.
The big questions about how to re-charge a battery is whether you should let it run to zero before re-charging to 100%.
One reason why people are unsure is something they’ve heard of called the battery “memory effect”.

What is battery memory effect?
Battery memory effect is about batteries remembering remaining charge if you didn’t let them go all the way to zero too often. So a battery frequently charged from 20% to 80% might ‘forget’ about the 40% that’s left uncharged (0-20% and 80-100%). Sounds crazy but that’s sort of true – but only for older nickel-based (NiMH and NiCd) batteries, not the lithium-ion batteries in your phone.
Lithium-ion (Li-ion) batteries don’t suffer the memory effect so you almost need to do the opposite – charge them often but not all the way throughout the day, and don’t let them drop to zero.
