“Commercialisation of our decoders will resume officially on November 1, and by that time, every part of Nigeria would have TSTV decoders for people to buy,” Echefu briefed the Journalists.
“We are releasing about one million which can go round, and our target for the first quarter is one million units.
“In every quarter, we will bring one million units, and we are targeting four million units within the next one year.
“I can tell you categorically that some decoders will be released next for Nigerians to test, and we are going to cover the 36 States of the Federation.
“These decoders are going to be free, and it is close to 5,000 units to test, and that will last for two weeks,” he added.
