Galaxy Backbone built and operates the National Information and Communication Technology Infrastructure Backbone (NICTIB) a cross-country optical fibre backbone. In its first phase, which has been completed, commissioned and covers a distance of 1484 km, the backbone spans 13 states across the South East, South South, North Central and South West of Nigeria with base stations installed in 17 cities.
Services On The Infrastructure
- Internet Bandwidth
- Clear Channel
- Dark Fiber

The backbone currently has a monthly availability of 98%. Availability is expected to reach 99.9 at the end of phase 2.
We have in place a 24/7 managed support system to provide preventive and corrective maintenance for the backbone to keep the availability within SLA specifications.
By the end of phase 2 of the NICTIB the backbone would have increased to 3441 km of optical fiber traversing 41 cities including cities in the North East, North West and South West of Nigeria. This will close our optical fibre ring for better protection and give an assured 99.9% availability and better quality of service.
