The laudable results witnessed over
the years in the development of broadband and digital connectivity in the
country would not have been possible without the various roles played by eight
companies and associations.





To further stimulate them for more
work in helping Nigeria get everyone connected to digital platforms, services
and ensure affordability,  the six private companies  and two
government agencies received various awards at the 10th Edition of eWorld
Forum, held today at the Oriental Hotel, Lagos.





Two government agencies, which have
stood out in the management of Nigerian public entities, the Nigerian
Communication Commission (NCC) and the Galaxy Backbone were among the select
few that received the eWorld plaudit.





The Association of Licensed Telecom
Operators of Nigeria (ALTON) and the Association of Telecommunication Companies
of Nigeria (ATCON) stood out from among the pack in the area of providing the
needed advocacy in the digital development ecosystem, and in their work in
catalyzing development of the sector.





The sterling, remarkable and focused
work of Rack Centre, Medallion, IXPN and streams in ensuring that local
companies take the driver seat in ensuring digital, internet connectivity and
hosting of Nigerian data locally received accolades at the event. 





NCC received the award of the Nigeria's
Best Corporate Governance and Regulatory Agency
carrying out its tasks
and targets with focus and dedication, achieving several milestones, among them
enablement of  the fastest growing mobile phone network in Africa and
carrying out one of the best and transparent licensing regime. Its work in
achieving the five year target of 30 per cent broadband penetration set for it
in 2013 and licensing seven infrastructure companies, providing them the
necessary enablement to take access to underserved and unserved parts of
Nigeria also got attention.





Another government agency 
Galaxy Backbone received Nigeria's Best eGovernance Champion
award for its work in building a sustainable economy using technology,
uplifting the image of .ng locally and internationally and stimulating the
development of local content on the Internet space.





The Association of Licensed Telecom
Operators of Nigeria (ALTON), got Nigeria's Best ICT Development Advocate
award for its dogged fight in ensuring that telecom operators operate
in the best of environment to drive the needed development of the sector, and
ultimately for the good of the Nigerian economy and its people.





For providing an umbrella for ICT
players, especially the not-so-big ones,  to nest and find a voice and
belonging and giving birth to so many other industry exhibition platforms where
industry players come together to showcase their services and technologies and
also discuss topical industry issues, ATCON got Nigeria's Best ICT
Industry Development Catalyst
.





eStreams received the award of Nigeria's
Best Digital Connectivity Company
for providing suitable connectivity
solutions to Corporate Nigeria, while Medallion received Nigeria's Best
Data Connectivity Company
award for being in the forefront of
localizing and advocating for pushing the nationwide spread of data centres to
cover all the geopolitical zones of the country.





eWorld's award of West
Africa's Best Digital Infrastructure Provider
went to Rack Centre for
its many exploits in providing data and digital connectivity and infrastructure
across West Africa.  IXPN received Nigeria's Best Champion of
Internet Connectivity
award for its sterling work in internet exchange
and connectivity in Nigeria.
