Satellite data specialist Avanti Communications has been awarded the very first Landing Permit in the history of Nigeria by the Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC).
This authorisation enables Avanti to strengthen its business in what is now the largest African economy.
The Permit was granted at the NCC headquarters in Abuja with several dignitaries in attendance. Speaking on behalf of the executive vice chairman, the director for spectrum administration, Dr Austin Nwaulune, emphasised the NCC’s mandate which is to foster the deployment of communications services to grassroots, to create economic growth and development.
Ann Vandenbroucke, chief regulatory officer at Avanti Communications said:” Avanti is the only operator to have invested in satellite gateways in Nigeria to ensure the highest quality of service in the country. Together with our local partners, we aim to drive greater access –including in outlying rural areas - to innovative services that are available and affordable to all citizens, businesses and schools.”
