Problems and future solutions to the existing network infrastructure in the province were discussed and basic analysis is conducted to justify the importance of the study. Mobile market analysis, current infrastructure, parameters evaluation and the way forward to the problems are discussed. Comparative analysis between the existing network infrastructure that is 3G networks and the proffer solution to the existing standard which is 4G network is also conducted. This paper also conducts an analysis on the existing Network providers in the region with their draw backs and the quality of services they provide to the customers within the region. The paper concludes with a future plan of coming up with an analytical solution in order to study the implementation process of a full 4G network in the Northwest region of Nigeria and to use a simulated environment to test the proposed model for viability.
