Communications Masts: Lagos Govt Sets New Standards

Internet Service Providers (ISPs), financial Institutions and other Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs) are now to comply with a new set of standard for the installation of communications masts in Lagos State, the State government has announced.

While the telecommunications companies are the highest users of masts in the state, the new standard will not affect them because they have since been building and erecting masts to international standards, using the approved specifications and quality of steel materials.

Those mainly affected by the new standards for masts installation in the state were the banks, ISPs, and SMEs that are using communication masts for their businesses.
