March 2, 2015 Editor 0
In this paper, we examined the empirical relationship between economic liberalization and telecommunication sector performance in Nigeria between 1986 and 2010 using the Stock and Watson (1993) Dynamic Ordinary Least Square (DOLS) technique. The study utilized secondary data and they were sourced from Nigeria Communication Commission (NCC), Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) Statistical Bulletin and World Development Indicator (WDI) Database.
The study found that a positive and significant relationship exists between telecommunication sector performance which is proxied by employee per telecommunication subscribers and the parameter of the dummy variable for economic liberalization (LIDUM) (t= 4.6400, p-value<0.01) and competition in the telecommunication market (t-value = 2.7889, p<0.05). The study concluded that economic liberalization enhanced performance of telecommunication sector positively.
