Nigeria’s NigComSat-1R satellite is scheduled to launch full commercial service this week.

The satellite, which was launched in December, is a hybrid geostationary satellite with total of 40 transponders, designed to provide optimal and cost effective voice, data, video, internet and application services solutions.

It is seen as a critical ICT backbone infrastructure to drive a Nigerian ICT revolution.
