This article provides you with the basic information on Telecommunication companies in Nigeria. We have witnessed a huge increase in the number of telecommunication companies (Telco’s) in Nigeria as a result of the recent deregulation of the mobile phone market which has led to the introduction of Global System for Mobile communication popularly known as (GSM). As at the time of this writing, companies that provide these services are MTN Nigeria, Airtel, Globacom and Etisalat.
Just like in so many other African countries, the use of cell-phones have soared, and have mostly replaced the unreliable services provided by the Nigerian Telecommunications Limited (NITEL). The current estimate lies at about 88 million mobile phones as at October 2011 according to sources, with most people having more than one cellphone, some even have up to three which is in contrast to what is obtainable in Europe and America where you are tied to your contract phone, in Nigeria, it is a different scenario, no contracts, just pay as you go.
