Pioneer software firm and ISP, Cyberspace Limited, clocks 25

Cyberspace Limited is more known as an ISP, but that was not the roots of the company. It was established on June 24, 1995, when tech and banking visionary, Mr Jim Ovia, conceptualised the idea of an ICT company providing networking, software development and everything in-between. The journey began with a staff body of just three individuals 25 years ago.

It was not until 8 years later in 2003 that Cyberspace emerged as an Internet Service Provider (ISP). Since then, it has increasingly provided its services to institutions like Zenith Bank, First Bank, Ecobank, Union Bank, FCMB, Wema Bank, LAPO MFB, Nigerian Ports Authority, Central Bank of Nigeria, Akwa Ibom State and the thousands of other business strata and retail clients as well, with a large number of nodes spread across the lenght and breadth of Nigeria.
Cyberspace Limited celebrates 25 years
While popularly known as an ISP, Cyberspace has continued its work as a consultant, networking provider and software development firm. It was the first company to build and launch the Computer Based Testing (CBT) system used by JAMB in 2008. The system was used during JAMB’s first 3 years of matriculation examinations.

In 2017, the company launched Cybercloud Platform Limited, followed by Cyberpay Limited two years later.

Cyberspace kept evolving with the times, and has gone from a mere software developer and dial-up ISP to Software innovators to Cloud pioneers with Artificial Intelligence and Big Data.

In the last 25 years, it has attracted numerous awards, International Certifications such as the ISO 9001:2015, CMMI and other outstanding partnerships with international players in various industries.
