Today, almost all fields of human activities rely on the high-speed broadband technologies for their day-to-day activities. The banks for example, are making plans to implement better and more sophisticated services such as cashless banking and other e-transactions as part of the NMT development goals. The 3G network coverage has become a problem in most rural and parts of the urban cities in Nigeria. However, the national mobile telecommunication development goals cannot be achieved without addressing the issue of 3G coverage in the country. The objective of this paper is to investigate the 3G technologies, their applications and the situation in developing nations especially Nigeria. The NMT development was reported to lag behind in the global telecommunication development and 2G networks are still more prevalent in most areas than 3G networks. It was concluded that the full deployment and coverage of 3G network will enhance the success of the NMT goals.
