The book, published by the Association of Telecommunications Companies of Nigeria, was launched in the presence of several personalities, including the Minister of Communications, Adebayo Shittu, who was the special guest of honour; former Executive Vice Chairman, Nigerian Communications Commission, Dr Ernest Ndukwe, and many others.
The book lists all the individuals and their companies with a summary of key contributions they have made to the telecommunications industry in the country.
According to the publication, Globacom since inception has pioneered a long list of innovations, which have not only led to the rapid development of Nigeria’s telecommunications sector but has expanded the threshold of telecom operations, both in terms of technology and reach.
The compendium documented Globacom as the first and the only operator so far to build a wholly-owned submarine cable linking Europe and America to West Africa.
The cable called, Glo-1, ensures the availability of bandwidth to enterprise customers in West Africa.
