Nigeria’s broadband penetration increased by 2.71 percent in the first half of the year, rising from 41.61 percent in January to 44.32 percent in June.
5.2 billion new users were added to the network as a result of the increase in H1. Within six months, it rose from 79.4 billion to 84.6 billion.
Broadband is a high-capacity transmission method that uses a variety of frequencies and allows for the simultaneous transmission of many messages.
According to new research from Dell’Oro, the broadband access market is expected to reach a value of $23.4 billion in 2026, driven by investments in equipment and deployments as service providers advance efforts to connect as many households as possible with what is perceived as more dependable connectivity.
According to the telecoms industry research firm, sales of fixed wireless customer premises equipment (CPE), cable broadband access kits, and passive optical network (PON) equipment for Fiber to the Home (FTTH) rollouts will all rise by 2026. According to the report, this would be motivated by service providers’ aim to increase the quality and dependability of these connections while also extending the reach of their fixed broadband services to customers’ homes.
According to the company’s projections, the market for PON equipment would increase from $9.3 billion in 2021 to $13.6 billion in 2026, mostly as a result of the implementation of XGS-PON, a symmetric passive optical network with 10Gbit/s capability, throughout North America, EMEA, and CALA (the Caribbean and Latin America).
The shipment of 5G sub-6GHz and 5G mmWave devices is expected to raise the revenue for fixed wireless CPE to $5.1 billion by 2026, according to the prediction. According to a recent analysis from the Global Mobile Suppliers Association (GSA), shipments of 5G-fixed wireless access (FWA) CPE are predicted to significantly increase this year compared to shipments in 2021.

Additionally, according to Dell’Oro, the market for cable distributed access equipment will generate close to $1.3 billion in sales by 2026 as operators continue to push for the rollout of DOCSIS 4.0 and fiber networks.
Jeff Heynen, vice president of the Dell’Oro Group, stated: “We’ve significantly revised our long-term broadband and home-networking forecast upward. As service providers try to stand out in increasingly competitive markets, fiber infrastructure build-outs lead to an increase in new subscribers and CPE with advanced Wi-Fi technology.
According to recent results from UK broadband provider TalkTalk, numerous operators on every continent are attempting to quickly roll out fiber networks that offer higher Internet speeds and function in a more sustainable and dependable fashion – see According to TalkTalk, fiber networks will be considerably cheaper for the environment than copper.
