The spectrum will be offered by the Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC) on a tech neutral basis which means it can be used to provide any telecommunication service.

According to Nigeria CommunicationsWeek, the planned licensing of the 2.6GHz spectrum is influenced by the need to open up the space for better delivery of present and future generations of broadband services to subscribers in tandem with the National Broadband Plan of 2013.
