Transmission Company of Nigeria
The demand for telecommunication services in Nigeria is increasing; however, the Nigerian backbone transmission relies mainly on microwave. Economic investment and fast profit are the advantages of microwave transmission, but the limited traffic capacity and poor anti-jamming capability are the disadvantages. The building of an optical fiber backbone network is the only way to solve the conflict between the limited traffic capacity and large demand.
The focus of the project is the exploitation of TCN's vast infrastructure for the development of a sustainable and commercially viable FOC-based backbone network on a design, build, finance, and operate arrangement with a world-class telecommunications company. The project seeks to use as a foundation TCN’s existing FOC infrastructure to build a formidable network that is capable of providing stable inter-city broadband communication services to telecom operators and others who may require it, as permissible under the terms of the NLDL.

A design, build, finance, and operate model was selected for TCN's telecommunications infrastructure to ensure optimal operation of the FOC network with effective supervision, technology transfer throughout the period of fifteen (15) years, and to subsequently transfer the infrastructure back to TCN at expiration.
Stakeholder engagement with key stakeholders.
