The Tech Citadel
According to statistics released by the NBS (The National Bureau of Statistics), Lagos state holds top stop in relation to amount of Internet users in states in the country.
While the released stats is only for the year's (2016) first quarter, these rankings are
not expected to change soon considering Lagos state being the country's commerce capital.

The National Bureau of Statistics reports that of about 148.74 million active voice subscribers in the country (Nigeria), Airtel Ng controls 22.7% of active voice subscribers in the country with rivals Globacom telecom holding about 23.2%. MTN telecom, despite its recent troubles (disconnecting quite a large number of subscribers) still ranks top, claiming responsibility for a whooping 38% of active voice subscribers.
Below are the top five (5) ranking states and least five (5) ranking states in relation to active voice subscribers in the country :
