BMI View: BMI forecast strong growth in Nigeria's telecoms sector, where mobile penetration just above 80% and broadband penetration below 10% mean there is considerable untapped demand for traditional voice and data services. A rapidly maturing tower market will enable operators to extend networks into rural areas more cost effectively, while allocation of wholesale Infraco licences will ensure investment into next generation broadband networks. However there are important industry and external risks to smooth growth. Nigeria's government has twice postponed 4G spectrum auctions and has requested a report investigating the sale of incumbent telecoms operator NITEL, which will delay investment into wireline and mobile data networks. Meanwhile, power shortages, a weaker economic outlook amid lower oil prices and ongoing terrorist attacks all pose additional operational challenges and downside risk to our growth outlook.
