One of the three companies that won the bidding for the 5G 3.5GHz Spectrum licenses, Mafab Communications, has begun rolling out its services for Nigerians.
The company, which unveiled the 5G network on Tuesday in Abuja, also used the occasion to present a brand-new logo for the business, which it claimed heralded the beginning of an era of limitless opportunities made possible by technology.
According to Dr Mushabu Bashir, the Chairman of Mafab Communications, the takeoff of the MAFAB 5G network highlights Nigeria’s strengths and limitless potential and marks the beginning of enormous opportunities for the nation.
“The 5G technology is not just a mobile network but represents a new culture, in a new era of connectivity where billions of devices exchange data and instil intelligence in our everyday life. It creates new, intelligent systems; and it can help to develop new advanced manufacturing models. I cannot forget to mention the prospect of increased job opportunities as a consequence of the value-chain benefits the technology will generate and offer. That is the dream we have all gathered here to launch today,” he noted.
