Backbone Connectivity Network (BCN), a high band rate service provider with its headquarters in Abuja, has announced its network operation to commence in August.

In a statement by its Managing Director/Chief Executive Officer, Dr. Kwame Boakye stated that BCN has a metro licence and long distance licence to operate its network business in Nigeria.

Boakye said he came to Nigeria from the United States in February last year to join the management team in running the operation of the company.

According to him "the companys business module was to enable operators of GSM, ISPs, PTOs to have high capacity interconnectivity within their own networks and interconnectivity with other networks".

He, however, noted that the company has started laying fibres in the metro areas in Abuja to Kano through Kaduna and Zaria as their first phase of the project, adding that the second phase is expected to take off soon to cover the Eastern and Western part of the country.

The CEO made it clear that the company is fully owned by Nigerians and they have so far injected over a hundred million US dollars in the smooth running of the first phase of the project.
