ABOUT A4AI-NIGERIA

The Alliance for Affordable Internet (A4AI)—the world’s broadest technology sector coalition—brings together prominent players from government, the private sector, and civil society to work to reduce the cost of a broadband connection and enable billions more to come online.

Since 2014, A4AI-Nigeria has been working on four priority issues to unlock the potential for affordable, universal and equal access in the country: infrastructure sharing and open access, spectrum, consumer awareness and pricing transparency, and taxation and financing. At the coalition meeting, the A4AI-Nigeria coordinators and working group champions will review progress to date and engage members on strategic focus and input for a new broadband plan for Nigeria.

Theme: Bridging the Broadband Access Gap in Nigeria to Support a Digital Economy

The coalition remains resolute in supporting the development of a suitable policy and regulatory environment to meet advance affordable access and ensure inclusive participation in the digital economy.

The meeting is open to all stakeholders committed to promoting policy and regulatory reform to make affordable internet possible in Nigeria. Check back soon for a detailed agenda.


TRAVEL SUPPORT FOR CIVIL SOCIETY

A4AI strives to ensure all stakeholders have the opportunity to contribute to coalition activities. Limited financial support for travel and accommodation is available to representatives of civil society organisations that are active members of the A4AI-Nigeria Coalition.
