Bourdillon Omijeh


This publication is purely research and accumulated intellect based. The bottom up approach adopted in this research was focused on the Bandwidth Implications of Submarine Cable to Broadband Development in Nigeria. The study tried to pinpoint some underlying fundamental issues limiting the development of Fibre Broadband in Nigeria. The various sources of undersea cables and there various capacities were well evaluated as well as the socio economic importance of broadband and its numerous applications. Other sources of broadband were also highlighted, with strategies on how to increase broadband penetration in Nigeria. The economic implication of bandwidth and its relationship with national development, was well introduced using the 2016 human development report by United Nations Development Program.  Analytical presentation of a proposed model for an interconnected long haul national backbone was also presented with the immerse benefits listed out.
