The Nigeria Communication Commission holds a one day stakeholders Consultative Forum on rural Connectivity using Television whitespaces (TVWS).
NCC is planning on developing a regulatory framework on the use of TVWS in Nigeria.
Some issues the meeting would cover are
- how to ensure harmonious operation with licensed spectrum users
- categorising TVWS operators into tiers to accommodate cognitive radio operators and non-cognitive radio operators
- the possibility of designating the TVWS spectrum as licence exempt to enable service providers to operate
competitively thatis to enable them to provide low-cost services to most of the unconnected subscribers in the rural areas.
