Huawei Technologies hosted the MTN Media Innovation Programme (MIP) Fellows to an exciting day of 5G demo experience and its penetration in Nigeria.

During the 5G event, Huawei’s technical team presented a series of enlightening use cases that explained the wide-ranging impact of 5G technology outside Nigeria, and the plans for expansion in the country. From healthcare to transportation to smart cities, the presentations highlighted the power of the technology in revolutionizing connectivity and enhancing everyday experiences.


Addressing the penetration of  5G technology,  Aihao Yin, Director, Business Solutions and Service Experience, Huwaei said, “The 5G penetration in Nigeria is still low, but it has changed the society so far, especially with the use cases such as hologram from MTN, Internet of Things (IoT), AR/VR, etc. However, the main advantage is the speed, which is three times faster than 4G. Nigeria still has the potential for wider 5G connectivity.”
