Nigerians just love GSM isn’t it?? I have often wondered why people don’t like CDMA as much as they do GSM. After all CDMA’s networks have cheaper phones and their call rate even more affordable. I know GSM phones are actually more flexible as they have better sim card usability and gives you a lot more independence as a subscriber. But then, that is not enough for it to be so much more popular as to attract 95% of the market share since its cost is not so much balanced by its benefit. One would think the with the relative cheap rates, CDMA’s will be very popular amongst the poor and those in the rural areas. But there lies the problem. CDMA networks I believe haven’t done much to penetrate the vast hinterland of Nigeria. They had mostly restricted themselves to major cities in the country thereby loosing major grounds when GSM operators were busing building cell sites around the country.
