The Challenge

Less than half of Nigeria’s population is connected to broadband internet, limiting information flows, education, economic diversification, and economic growth.

Our Solution & Impact

The U.S. Trade and Development Agency (USTDA) is funding two projects to help deliver fast, reliable internet to thousands of Nigerian households. North Carolina-based CCG Consulting will conduct a feasibility study to help ipNX Nigeria Limited expand its fiber-optic network to more than 200,000 households. New Jersey-based S2 Associations International’s study will help Aldreda Fields develop aerially installed broadband networks, bringing more accessible and affordable internet to neighborhoods across Lagos.
