The National Space Research and Development Agency (NASRDA) is desirous of pursuing research in the field of broadband technology that will result in cost-effective satellite system solutions in rural Nigeria through this PPP arrangement. The project was designed as part of the solution towards meeting Nigeria’s aspiration of providing up to 90% of Nigerians with fast, affordable, reliable and high-speed fixed broadband internet at a price not more than N390 per 1GB of data by the year 2025. On completion, the Satellite Broadband Penetration project is expected to significantly increase the fixed-broadband penetration for Nigeria from its current abysmal level of about 0.2%.
