Mobile Phone Prices in Nigeria – 6 of August 2001 under the rule of President Olusegun Obasanjo GSM ( global systems for mobile communications) was brought into Nigeria by MTN. The arrival of GSM brought an end to the usage of nitel because of its problematic network service. GSM brought with it a far better service than nitel ever provided, and as such a Monopoly was formed over the telecoms industry in Nigeria. And nitel soon became a thing of the past, as GSM soon brought about an improvement in the SME ( small-medium enterprise) sector, hence growing the socioeconomic value of the country. The market quickly expanded creating new market players but internationally and nationally. The emergence of a new telecoms company ECONET came in and the rest is history.

How the advent of mobile phones has been of advantage to Nigerians.
As far back as the year, 2000 Nigerians have been using landlines provided by nitel for communication both nationwide and internationally. The cost of owning a landline telephone made it impossible for every Nigerian to own one, hence landlines became a luxury men’s for the upper-middle class and the upper class of Nigerians. Public telephone booths and phone houses became a business in the country as this was the only way the common man could communicate will people nationwide and abroad. They would charge exorbitant rates for very short time periods and this made communication difficult, even though it was available to the common man it was also very expensive. Businesses relied on walk-in clients in order to make a sale, only large-scale businesses could have forward telecommunication at that time. This made the SME sector struggle because communication became a huge problem, everything had to be done face to face or by a messenger carrying a note of things to buy. This was indeed a dark age for communication in Nigeria. in the year 2001 under the rule of Olusegun Obasanjo GSM came into Nigeria and shortly after a slew of different telecom companies, the cost of phone calls became very cheap with each passing year and the cost of mobile devices became cheaper as well. Now everyone could afford a mobile device, telecommunication was not made available to the masses. Soon after mobile internet came into Nigeria and fast forward to present-day the SME sector is thriving and has now become one of the top sectors generating revenue for the country. Purchases are now made online and door to door deliveries are now possible due to this communication made available. This also boosted international trade as individuals can now make purchases overseas with their mobile device and have them brought into the country, and distributed nationwide through several delivery services to meet up with clients demands. Mobile devices have changed the economic sector and the social life of everyone in the country as communication has made the world a global village.
