Do We Really Need 5G Network In Nigeria Now?
The National Policy on Fifth Generation (5G) Networks for Nigeria’s Digital Economy has been approved by the Federal Executive Council. The 5G Policy was approved at the Council meeting today, Wednesday, September 8, 2021, following a presentation by Isa Ali Ibrahim, Minister of Communications and Digital Economy (Pantami). The National Policy is being implemented immediately.
Leading international organizations, including the World Health Organization (WHO) and the International Telecommunications Union (ITU), a United Nations organ, have confirmed that the deployment of 5G networks has no negative health effects and is completely safe.
In comparison to current technologies, 5G networks offer significant advantages. Its benefits include much lower latency, higher bandwidth, higher device density, longer node battery life, and greater network flexibility.
Several countries have already begun 5G deployment and are reaping the benefits. To name a few, these countries are the United States, the United Kingdom, the Republic of Korea, South Africa, and Lesotho.
Based on the condemnation of 5G by Nigerians, do you think it necessary for the Federal government to deploy the network now? Let’s hear from you.
