Lagos Leads In The Latest Internet Users Report... See Where Your State Is Ranked

Am not surprised to see Lagos top the list of the states with highest voice call and internet subscribers in Nigeria. The state has always retained the first position for a long time and i don't see Lagosians slacking any sooner. Two major factors that contributed to this is the high population of the state and the numerous industries including marketing activities.

In the latest released report by National Bureau of Statistics (NBS) showing the number of active phone lines and internet subscribers according to states in Nigeria, Lagos ranked and topped the closest state with a big margin. This stats is compiled for the first quarter of 2016

The list below shows the top 5 and least five states with active voice lines and internet subscribers. Is your state among the top 5 or bottom 5?
