Why do I have to sit through this movie on TV when I could have watched the same content on YouTube? Why can’t I play my favourite online mobile game with my friends even when they are on vacation abroad? Can we have the board meeting via streaming instead of incurring flight cost? These are some of the internal dialogue of today’s internet users especially millennials when they encounter friction-filled experiences.

The world is shifting. Technology and the Internet have changed how we live, work, and play. No individual and industry are immune to its disruptive power. It has instilled into us a never-ending appetitive for more, better, faster connection and engagement.

Despite having over 98 million connected devices in Nigeria, access to affordable, effortless and seamless unlimited broadband internet experience still remain a major concern to many users. A lot of people use multiple devices in order to get access to internet at work, home or while socialising with friends.

But a new dawn has come. Thanks to Airtel Nigeria. The telecom giant recently unveiled its Home Broadband Service in line with its commitment to deepen Internet connectivity as well as empower telecoms consumers to share data with a number of people without worrying about cost and other limitations.
