Joint venture agreement takes connectivity to Nigerian institutions:
Federal Government-owned Galaxy Backbone(GBB) Limited and the Eko-Konnect Research and Education Initiative (Eko-Konnect) have signed a joint venture agreement to work on a backbone network for research and education in Nigeria. The agreement is a vital step towards the growth of robust national infrastructure that will offer dependable high-speed connectivity, access to research outputs, teaching, and learning materials for tertiary education in the country.
Chair, Eko-Konnect Board of Trustees, Prof. Charles Uwadia had this to say, “This development gives the much-needed impetus to the several initiatives providing services for research and education communities in Nigeria. The availability of affordable and dedicated network and data centre services for educational institutions across the country will provide the necessary momentum to work towards the community-driven platforms required for long-term sustainability.”
