Despite the Microsoft Enterprise contract, the C-band move is projected to increase the adoption of fifth-generation services in India...

Dr. Femi Adeluyi, the Minister of Communications and Digital Economy's Technical Assistant for Research and Development, said as much in a statement.

To speed up the rollout of 5G services nationwide, the Federal Executive Council authorized an Enterprise Licensing Agreement for Microsoft Products and the clearance of C-band Spectrum."

Government-wide Enterprise License Agreement for Microsoft products is a cost-reduction approach for the government, according to the statement, which will maintain IT project costs within reasonable limits.

The Federal Ministry of Communications and Digital Economy will oversee the National Information Technology Development Agency's policy implementation.

Enterprise Licensing Agreement is predicted to save the government at least 35% of its present spending on Microsoft products and services.

Microsoft licenses and services must be procured following the Agreement mandated by the Federal Government.

It is now possible for the Nigerian Communications Commission to clear particular C-band spectrums of any obstacles and relocate the present users of the affected spectrum toward a successful deployment of 5G technology in the nation, thanks to this clearance.

Nigerian Communication Satellite Limited and the Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC) have agreed to migrate the operations of the NigComSat-1R Satellite C Band service to a different frequency (Standard C Band) and release its current frequency for the deployment of 5G in the country as soon as possible.

According to the statement, C-Band services in the 3.4–3.9GHz band are expected to expire in the next seven and a half years. Nigeria's 5G network is anticipated to be live in August.
