As you might have noticed, today's Techpoint Africa Podcast is a little — well more like a lot — different. Last Thursday in the studio, we discussed MTN launching the 5G network in Nigeria. This week, we travelled down to the company's headquarters in Lagos, Nigeria to talk with Adia Sowho, Chief Marketing Officer, MTN Nigeria.
If you have questions like whether you'll pay more for data or be able to exchange your 4G router for the 5G router then you should listen to/watch this. We also talked about the potential use cases for 5G and how it could be a gateway for more financial inclusion.
