The challenging ISP Business

ISP business is not easy in the age of MTN, Glo and Airtel. In the last five years, out of 103 ISPs who received licenses in Nigeria from NCC, only 11 renewed last year. Simply, many are dying out as data prices drop in the sector. With the WIFI entrepreneurs coupled with free Google services, ISPs will see only challenging future in Nigeria.

According to him, as there is a need to check on the bigger players, the mobile network operators, they can afford to slash data prices because they have significant customer base, “however, their actions are impeding the services rendered by ISPs.”Statistics from the Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC), showed that in the past five years, the Commission had licensed about 103 ISPs nationwide, but only 10 per cent applied for renewal of the licence as at last year.
