Nigeria’s internet connections hit 159.5 million in July 2023

Active subscriptions for the internet across mobile, fixed and VOIP networks in Nigeria rose to 159.5 million in July this year.

According to the latest industry statistics released by the Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC), this, however, represents only a 0.02% growth when compared with the 159.4 million recorded in June.

The NCC’s data reveals that the mobile network operators MTN, Airtel, Globacom, and 9mobile maintained their dominance of the internet market with 158.9 million internet subscriptions, leaving other players with less than a million connections.
