Nigeria’s mobile telecommunications market with over 70 million subscribers is Africa’s largest telecoms market. The value of the industry as at 2008 was put at $8.4 billion. The growing numbers of telecom service providers have been able to leverage the existing infrastructure to provide value added services such as mobile internet services, car tracking services, online banking and other online payment services in addition to the regular mobile telephone services.
With increased competition, these Telco’s are faced with the arduous task of maximizing profit in the face of high operating costs imposed by the country’s weak social infrastructure, and strict regulations by the Nigerian Communications Commission, the licensed regulator. The Telco’s are also faced with the challenge of managing their IT infrastructure in the light of poor human capital quality to attain optimal levels of service.
