Governor Hope Uzodinma of Imo State has signed an Executive order which significantly reduces the Right of Way (ROW) of telecommunication companies in the State from N4500 to N145 per meter in tandem with Federal Government policy.

Uzodinma said the decision to reduce right way for telecom companies is meant to encourage the companies to further invest in broadband infrastructure and trigger ancillary on-line services, especially in the field of education.

In a statement, the governor said his government is hopeful that this drastic reduction from N4500 of the broadband ROW to N145 per linear meter of fibre will accelerate the deployment of affordable and reliable modern high-speed connectivity in the State.

The Executive order urged telecommunication companies to note that the State plays host to vibrant and youthful demography located in many tertiary institutions, who form the bulk of the end-users of their products.
