Three research questions guided the study, employing a survey research design. The study population consisted of 38 respondents, comprising 17 Technical Unit Heads from the National Information Technology Development Agency (NITDA) and 21 Heads of Telecommunication and Innovation Units from the Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC) across six regional offices in Nigeria. Due to the small population size, the entire population was included, eliminating the need for sampling. Data collection utilized a structured questionnaire developed by the researchers, titled "Innovations and Challenges in Fifth-Generation Telecommunication Networks Questionnaire (ICFTNQ)," achieving a reliability index of 0.87 through the Cronbach Alpha reliability method. Mean statistics were utilized to address the research questions. The findings revealed the significant enhancements brought by 5G to telecommunication infrastructure in Nigeria, particularly in speed, reliability, innovation, and economic development. Key innovative strategies crucial for 5G deployment were identified, including network optimization, collaboration, infrastructure development, and regulatory support. The study recommends collaborative efforts among government, industry stakeholders, and international partners to overcome challenges and establish a robust foundation for successful 5G deployment in Nigeria.</p> Isaac John Ibanga, karnilius Gideon Fwah, Bamidele Onibode Copyright (c) 2024 Authors Wed, 19 Jun 2024 00:00:00 +0000
